Oklahoma ATV and RUV
Appalachia Bay (55" gate to drive threw) Lake Draper/Crosstimbers bans RUV
Detail from Oklahoma Tax Commission (2007 to Present)
As a result of House Bill 1606, ATVís are now defined as being a motorized vehicle manufactured and used exclusively for off-highway use which is forty-eight inches or less in width, with an unladen dry weight of 800 pounds or less, traveling on two or more low-pressure tires, and having a seat designed to be straddled by the operator and handlebars for steering.
ATVís that fall under the new statutory definition and are purchased on or after November 1, 2007, must be titled and registered through an Oklahoma tag agency. Excise tax, assessed in lieu of sales tax, will be collected by the tag agency. All terrain vehicles that do not meet the revised statutory definition are not to be titled or registered and sales tax is to be collected by the retailer at time of purchase.Only two and four wheel vehicles not exceeding 54 inches in width allowed.
From Crosstimbers Rules
NO THREE WHEEL VEHICLES or RUV's ALLOWED. Crosstimbers trails have been designated for ORV's. The new law in OK defines RZRs, Rhinos, Teryxs, etc., as Recreation Utility Vehicles (RUV's) and not ORV's. This is a recent change. Permits can no longer be sold to RUV riders, but anyone already having a permit for 2008 will be permitted (grandfathered) to ride their RUV on the ORV trails for the remainder of the permit season. The main reason for the change is that RUVs are becoming dangerously powerful with hop-up kits to get them over 100hp. They really are in a class of their own.
Where do you find this new law????????
