OFF TOPIC-(ATV QUESTION)

Postby slepe67 » Wed Aug 16, 2006 8:08 pm

Hey all, have been outta town for a while, thinking about getting an atv. My brother still lives in Montana, and he has his ATV registered and street legal. Anyone here in FL know if this is possible? Really want this so I can use Eglin Range with the ATV. I have seen some things, but never this. In MT, anything goes. I was thinking of registering one up there, and bring it down here, but I think the Po-po would toss my butt in the clink. Thanks in advance. Have fun bustin beaks this year, I'll be gone AGAIN!!!!

ATV's cannot be used on Florida Highways.

Isn't the beach considered a highway? like A I A or something to that effect? Why are there so many ATV's allowed on the beach? Is it just rental places that are allowed to rent the use of them on the beach or can you get a permit to ride your personnel ATV on the beach?

Just thinking out loud, I sure would like to ride my quad up and down the beach during spring break!!!!!! :cool: :cool: :cool:

I'm pretty sure you are'nt allowed to ride any vehicle on the beaches because of sand dunes, or at least i the big bend area

The daytona beach area allows vehicles. They rent quads out the wazoo there.

4-wheelers

Postby Fackler Flash » Fri Aug 18, 2006 9:59 am

In Alabama it is legal to ride a 4-wheeler on the highway if it is equiped with all the features required on a motorcycle. Looking at the link kg posted, you might be able to do the same down here. I would probably contact the local police or sheriffs office for clarification.

back in town again. Man I need a vacation. Thanks for the help. It's probably a blessing in disguise, I'd probably move out into the woods and never come out. Later, hope to see ya this season. JL

I grew up hunting Eglin. Your best bet is to just get a Jeep with some decent lift/tires.
