Street legal Arkansas xp4 1000

I received a ticket last November for driving my Rzr on the city streeets. I had spent some time reading the law and found what I considered a way to be able to do it. Well today was my trial date. I presented my evidence and the prosecutor asked the judge to dismiss the ticket. The crux of the situation is they made it illegal to register a Rzr in the state of Arkansas but a Rzr with at least 650 cc's over 800 lbs and street legal tires on bigger than 12 inch rims is legal if it has a license plate on road registration and insurance.. you just can't license it in Arkansas so in my case a Montana registration of being street legal is valid in Arkansas.

Weird hole in the law.

There is an opinion from the attorney general of Arkansas on this and an issue with the state police, its worth a read i thought.
Basically said there is no reason to register them here, because they are already legal under a clause that allows for them to be used to travel to and from farming and to and from hunting.
This is why they stopped registering them.
