  1. I was just thinking the other day that we need to do some brush trimming on some of the MC trails. Good timing on the offroad groups. Count me in.
  2. Catching up on some of your ride reports. Really enjoying reading about and seeing the pictures from your new riding areas. Keep them coming.
  3. Glad to hear you are out riding again and sorry other about the knee injury. Hope you heal up fast. Thanks for sharing the ride report and beautiful pictures. Sure is some nice scenery out there.
  4. I'm really confused now. It seems the requirements for the nonresident OHV sticker and the safety training permit might be different and may or may not be related. So I don't really know what the heck is going on. Disregard everything I have previously posted and try and figure it out for yourself.
  5. Apparently they lied. I have not found anything that says motorcycles are exempt from this requirement and have seen a number of places where it says street legal off-highway motorcycles require it. If you are riding off-highway and get stoped it's likely you will get asked for your permit and checked for your Utah off-highway vehicle sticker. And apparently it does apply to Jeeps and other large vehicles (Type III OHVs). It also says it is required for all nonresident OHVs operated on the street or highway in Utah which seems rather onerous. I don't think they will be checking every vehicle entering Utah but it is a requirement they can enforce if desired. I'm not trying to get into an argument about this just passing along the new information. Like all laws they only become important when you get stoped by law enforcement especially if you were doing something suspicious that makes them stop you. Check this out for more information. https://recreation.utah.gov/off-highway-vehicles/ Here is the Utah Code: Effective 1/1/2023 41-22-35. Off-highway vehicle user fee -- Decal -- Agents -- Penalty for fraudulent issuance of decal -- Deposit and use of fee revenue. (1) (a) Except as provided in Subsection (1)(b), any person owning or operating a nonresident off-highway vehicle who operates or gives another person permission to operate the nonresident off-highway vehicle on any public land, trail, street, or highway in this state shall: (i) apply for an off-highway vehicle decal issued exclusively for an off-highway vehicle owned by a nonresident of the state; (ii) pay an annual off-highway vehicle user fee; (iii) provide evidence that the owner is a nonresident; and (iv) provide evidence of completion of the safety course and program described in Section 41-22-35. (b) The provisions of Subsection (1)(a) do not apply to an off-highway vehicle if the off-highway vehicle is: (i) used exclusively as an off-highway implement of husbandry; (ii) used exclusively for the purposes of a scheduled competitive event sponsored by a public or private entity or another event sponsored by a governmental entity under rules made by the division, after notifying the commission; (iii) owned and operated by a state government agency and the operation of the off-highway vehicle within the boundaries of the state is within the course and scope of the duties of the agency; (iv) used exclusively for the purpose of an off-highway vehicle manufacturer sponsored event within the state under rules made by the division; or (v) operated as part of a sanctioned off-highway vehicle event or part of an official tour by a person licensed as a off-highway vehicle tour guide in this state. (2) The off-highway vehicle user fee is $30. (3) Upon compliance with the provisions of Subsection (1)(a), the nonresident shall: (a) receive a nonresident off-highway vehicle user decal indicating compliance with the provisions of Subsection (1)(a); and (b) display the decal on the off-highway vehicle in accordance with rules made by the division. As always, ride at your own risk.
  6. No you don't have to log in. I did it without logging in. You do have to fill out the demographics part to get your certificate after completing the course. And yes, from what I read it applies to all motorcycles including street legal (dual sport and ADV bikes) that are designed for off-road use. Basically any motorbike that you are riding or can ride off-highway. Also includes ATVs and SXSs (side by sides.) Did not see that it applies to Jeeps, trucks, cars or other large vehicles. It kind of parallels the OHV permits ($25) sticker that is required for "all" OHVs used in Utah on public lands. From what I can tell it is an off-highway drivers license only they are not calling it that.
  7. Got this from a friend that found it on a RZR forum: https://secured.utah.gov/utoutdoorrecdirectory/Forms/Edit/utoutdoorrecdirectory/44e377a4-4aea-441d-94d3-3b17d4bb8046/0 I hope the link works. Basically you have to take an online education and safety course and get a certificate to operate an OHV (street legal or off-road only) off-road and on-road in the state of Utah starting this year.

  9. Hi Mimi! Thanks for checking in and sharing your great ride reports. Good to hear you are adjusting to a huge lifestyle change. Wishing you all the best.
  10. That is good. All help is appreciated and welcome. Anyone come when you can if you have a few hours to spare. We may need help in the afternoon to setup and get ready. Also may need help in evening for dinner, raffle and cleanup.
  11. We are planning to put on this event but have very few volunteers identified so far. I think we will have some help from the SDORC folks but we need some SDAR folks to step up. If you can help please reply so we can start planning who will be where to make sure we have enough help to cover the activities. If you can help with any of these areas please reply and let us know: Preparing the GPS track or route. (Needs to be done ASAP. We have preliminary tracks that need tweeking a little. Need someone who knows GPS) Preparing rider packages to give out at sign up. (Prior to sign up maybe on Saturday, May 14) Rider sign ups and distributing the Tracks or Route and rider packages at the start of the event. (8 am to 10 am at Moto Forza May 15.) Riders to run sweep. (May 15 all day.) Set up for the event at Pio Pico Campground. (Morning and afternoon May 15 at Pio Pico CG) Help with dinner and raffle. (Afternoon and evening of May 15) Clean up after dinner. (May 15 evening) Clean up after event (May 16 morning)
  12. Just wondering if anyone is planning on riding or helping with this event? Seems to be very little interest from what I've seen so far. Only a couple of folks have been at the planning meetings and not much activity on here about it.
