All along people have been wishing that the RZR could be made street legal.
Alot of the problems stem from the words on the TITLE which states
( OFF ROAD USE ONLY ).
If we could get Polaris to change the words to!
"MULTIPURPOSE OR ENDURO ".
Like some motorcycles have, this would help us out over halfway in my thinking on this issue.
With all the financial troubles the States are in, this would be another revenue source that the
states would have for years to come.
I will be trying to find out if this would be possible here in California.
I will be making inquiries into this matter with several politicians.
Maybe we could get Polaris to offer the EURO MODEL to use here in the states. I will contact Polaris
to see if it would be possible to get one of these units.
Either way would be a enormous help to us all.
If we could get the other SxS communities involved in this project, along with the manufactures,
dealers and aftermarket we just might be able to push something forward like this.
We could setup petition for each State and get the signature of everyone interested.
Then someone from each State could take it from there.
There was a "Bill" I think from the State of Idaho that went through last year. I will look for it and down
load to use as a base for a bill to show to the Politicans as a jump off point.
This way along with a signature list it would at least be a starting point.
Another point I would like some feedback on, I was thinking down the road if you all think it would be a
good idea to have a RZR set up for street use, with all the parts needed for street use.
This would be for the State of California, each State could do there own.
I will be contacting Polaris for help in this reguard, along with anyone else that would like to help.
Do you think it would be better to setup a regular RZR or a RZRS due to the wider wheel base.
I would have a power steering unit installed. For the Politicans.
I would work towards a event, put on in Sacramento, California.
We could raise additional capital if it was decided for below reason.
The reason being would be to arrange to take the RZR around the State if need be for the Politicans to
test drive on and off road. There are alot of great vendors out there that could setup sights for these
events to take place.
We could provide a nice lunch and drinks ( water & soda to show them we take the sport serious )I am sure
there would be other people that would offer up there units for test drives to the Politicans at these events.
The main thing is to show how compatible the SxS would be for street use, along with how safe they are.
We could setup a course in some large parking area along with stop signs. Have it set up the width of a regular
road, (we would incorperate
vehicles into the course?)
We would set up a committee to decide the best way forward on this issue.
Here is a list of things I was thinking of doing to the unit.
Front windshield with wiper kit/Back window.
Top, to keep the sun off the Politicans heads in case it's hot.
Rearview & Side mirrors.
Street tires for pavement segment of ride then switch over to the off road tires.
? Heater with defrost to show when unit is inclosed in winter months there would not be any issue with the front
windshield fogging up.
Maybe someone would have a Unit with a hard cab to show off.
Radio with IPOD?
Let me know what else you think would be needed.
Any feed back and help would be great, I have already started on this project.
The time to strike is when the states need money in a bad way.
Most of us have insurance and we can show them this also.
Thanks to everyone in advance.
