So...when getting a Trail Pass, do you need to supply make and model of your sled? I mean, yeah if you get pulled over and than ask for a trail pass you just pull it out? And by chance was it you that asked someone if this set-up would be alright? and by chance who did you ask?(OFSC?)
I mean really, the only difference would be only one ski, with less air pollution.
I asked the sales rep of the radix unit at last year's International Bike Show in Toronto, the OPP SAVE co-ordinator at the OFTR Presidents' Council and my local dealer who also sells sleds and snowmobile trail passes.
They all tell the same story. I wish it was different because I would have one of these rigs in a second if I thought I could get on the trails legally during the winter. The difference is in the legistration that covers these vehicles.
Snowmobiles are clearly defined in the Ontario Snowmobile Act
and a converted bike is not going to make it. ATV's and bikes come under the Ontario Off-Road Vehicle Act. From the information I have you would be wasting your money on a snowmobile trail pass since the OPP would not consider it valid for a converted bike due to above.
Snowmobile Trail Passes are only valid for snowmobiles as defined by the Ontario Snowmobile Act. The snowmobile clubs already have problems with ATV's getting on the trails and a number of clubs have already said no to the bike conversion kits.
So there it is. If you don't like the answer I suggest you talk to your MPP and have the legistration changed.
