RZR's on streets is a bad idea if you ask me. Get into an accident with a car or truck and you don't have a chance... way too dangerous.
No worse than getting creamed on a R1 or a Harley.. or a trike or even a horse or a moped or a smart car should i keep going? you sound like a New Hampshire Lawmaker :P

If i was able i would drive my rzr to work everyday when it was warm enough and to the store, shit i would drive it everywhere.

I didn't say it should be illegal,,, just a bad idea. idiots should be allowed to kill themselves... LOL
At least street bikes are designed to run on pavement. The RZR has a locked rear diff.

Re: My quest to be Street Legal in Missouri

Not that I do want to drive on the highway, but mine has a valid MO title, and I have the sticker. Also have a county sticker and I was told that it can be ridden on secondary roads with that permit. Where I live I make short drives to friends houses close by on paved county roads, and when it snows we pretty much go all over when the roads are covered. So far we've not been bothered by local authorities. I'm sure they could if they wanted to though.

Also the local conservation area close to me now allows UTVs to ride there, as long as you have the county sticker. I know for a fact because I've been checked by the Ranger.

Re: My quest to be Street Legal in Missouri

Well, the area is Hercules glade, and found out through the park rangers. ATVs were always allowed there, but not UTVs. I'm not sure at what level it changed but it did. Also, no triangle or flag required for UTV, but it is for an ATV. When we were checked by the ranger all we needed was the sticker. The ATV with us had to have a flag and triangle. Ranger said we didn't because UTVs have headlights and tail lights. We had some discussion about the fact ATVs have headlights and tail lights, but the Ranger didn't really seem to care, rule was triangle and flag.

Re: My quest to be Street Legal in Missouri

Well, something is wrong with system if they titled your RZR's , Missouri statues say they do not title them, but hey if they did thats awesome because, that will make it one step easier, all u should have to do is get it to pass inspection, DOT tires and few other things. Now Im goona have to try and title mine, 2 bad will have to pay salestax on all of that and 200 late fee, but might be selling my jeep so can use Bill of sale agaisnt sale tax and just owe late fee.

Side note to all that ask why, well small towns like mine it is handy, if you have all this money in a vehicle makes it even more handy to have legal. No its not something to ride to work if you live far. Being locked in rear may affect driving on road some but if your good at driving it wont be a problem, I ride mine allready on the road quite a bit, no issues with driveability. Any of you guys that did get a title, if u could pm me Id like to see front side of your title, u can cover up vin # and your name address. Thanx

Re: My quest to be Street Legal in Missouri

Here is from state statues, If they titled them they did it in error in my opinion read bottom section.


Off-Road Utility Vehicles
A “Utility vehicle” is “any motorized vehicle manufactured and used exclusively for off-highway use which is sixty-three inches or less in width, with an unladen dry weight of 1,850 pounds or less, traveling on four or six wheels, to be used primarily for landscaping, lawn care, or maintenance purposes.”

Utility vehicles do not meet the definition of a motor vehicle or ATV, and will not be titled and registered. Examples of off-road utility vehicles include, but are not limited to:
Minicab,
Mule,
Gator,
Max/Buffalo, Etc.
Utility vehicles cannot be operated upon the highways of this state unless they are:
Owned and operated by governmental entity for official use,
Operated for agricultural or industrial on-premise purposes, or
Operated by handicapped persons for short distances on secondary roads.
The operator must have a valid driver license, but does not have to be motorcycle qualified.
Cities/counties are allowed to issue special permits for utility vehicles to be used on county roads within the county or on highways within the city to licensed drivers for a fee of $15. The fee is to be kept by such city/county.
The seller of a utility vehicle is responsible for collecting and remitting all applicable state and local tax on new utility vehicles.
Utility vehicle owners may qualify for a “farm use” tax exemption.

Recreational Off-Highway Vehicles
A “Recreational Off-Highway Vehicle" is "any motorized vehicle manufactured and used exclusively for off-highway use which is sixty inches or less in width, with an unladen dry weight of one thousand eight hundred fifty pounds or less, traveling on four or more nonhighway tires, with a nonstraddle seat, and steering wheel, which may have access to ATV trails."

Recreational off-highway vehicles do not meet the definition of a motor vehicle or ATV, and will not be titled and registered.

Mine is 63" wide, so does that mean it would be ok to get it street legal?

Re: My quest to be Street Legal in Missouri

I just got my Barry County MO permit sticker for my RZR4. I talked to the Ranger station and they told me they do not have full rules for UTVs yet and all they could tell me is I can ride on any Forest, service or fire road. But can not ride on "Tails" as in Chadwick. I ride at Sugar camp and they have signs all over saying no UTVs are allowed on Forest property but all the signs have the roads marked as Forest Roads. I guess I will ride until a meet up with another Ranger. Also in Arkansas you pay sales tax, have to register and pay PP taxes each year on it. But you can not ride on the street BS...... but you can build your own POS and get it licensed. How safe is that?? I think I would take the RZR first.

Re: My quest to be Street Legal in Missouri

Irish, years ago I had a Rhino and rode it at Chadwick, no one said anything but didnt fit well, but I guess that was back around 04 so they maybe didnt know what to think yet.

Yea no worse than dune buggy

Main thing stopping me from trying to title right now if they are gonna do it?? I dont have money for salestax so will be just a bit.
