What states allow rhinos on pavement ???

Just a thought ..

Just HOW many states can you legally drive a Rhino on the road ????

How many states can you licence a rhino and drive it on the road ???

We ALL know Arizona ... But where else ???

Has been legal in Wyoming since Jan 1, 2008. Requires two headlights, two tail lights, horn and either flag or slow moving vehicle sign if you can't do the posted speed limit.

Cool

It varies by county in Indiana. My county allows riding on the country roads as long as:

Driver is 18 or older and has a valid driver's license.
Owner has $100K/$300K liability limit insurance on the vehicle.
Vehicle is registered with the state DNR.
You must travel at a reasonable speed for the road conditions

West Virginia you can ride on any paved road that has no painted lines on it. No license is required. Certain towns that intersect the Hatfield/ McCoy trails you can ride the streets even with painted lines.

Too bad more UTV owners couldn't start using the "green laws" against the tree huggers.

Wouldn't a rhino be considered a "low emissions" vehicle. With Fuel prices going up and up, There has to be a way to get them listed as a legal alternative to the SUV.

You can register these in Ca., so why not a UTV.

Right, but where I live people ride the main road anyway. I ride my Rhino up and down the road all the time and even had a cop right behind me. He didn't care at all. He just kind of cracked up because he could tell I was kind of nervous.

All those GEM cars are electric. The Rhino doesn't have any pollution controls whatsoever and I seriously doubt you will ever have them in wide use in California! Even though I would doubt a 660 or even 700 cc motor produces as much polutants as a typical suv with emmision equipment and more computer power than the first space vehicles!

If you voted for Obama to prove you are not racist- Who are you going to vote for to prove you are not an idiot?

In Minnesota, Rhinos and any other ATV over 900 pounds (I think) is considered a class II ATV. You can ride a class II ATV on any county, city, or township road outside the 7 county metro area, unless the jurisdiction has passed an ordinance stating otherwise.
