Going to Moab

15 posts in this topic

Some friends and I are heading to Moab mid October. I have all the free mods done and no a.i.s. Is that going to be a problem with this green sticker red sticker thing. We are from BC Canada so pardon lack of knowledge on this subject. Any other things we should know would be greatly appreciated!!

I live in utah and ride at moab regularly. Just make sure you have a spark arrestor and the bike is registered. No worries and enjoy!

Green sticker / red sticker I think is CA only, you won't get any grief in Moab. Have fun.

Here in Cali we also have a temporary out of state OHV registration. Do you have anything like that in Utah?

As it turns out it worked out well for one of my friends. He's from Reno and bought another friend's red sticker bike. He's around for a few months so he went to the local shop and picked up the out of state permit for $18 I think, and he can ride all year long, no red sticker BS.

That's what made me think to ask about an out of state sticker or reg.

Thanks,

Chances are you would get caught doing that. Show up to ride at the same place more than once, car/truck with CA plates, CA driver's licence.... The out of state registration wouldn't help you very long. Just like having a car with plates from out of sate, sooner or later you get questioned about it.

What kind of registration do you need? In BC we just buy and ride.

By "buy and ride" I mean buy a dirt bike and go riding. No one is required to have registration... at least not yet.

Let's review :lame:

I said he is here from Reno for a few months. While I didn't state it, that means he has a Nevada License and Registration, and the bike he bought is also now registered in Nevada.

While he probably would eventually have problems with his on-road vehicle registration here in CA if some cop kept seeing him around for months at a time, that would never happen with the motorcycle thing. As long as he is a resident of Nevada, he could ride his Nevada registered dirtbike in California every day. As long as he paid his fee and has the out of state OHV sticker on his bike.

Class is now over. :bonk:

I live in Reno as well and, with a 20$ green sticker I can ride any where in CA as long as I have a sparky! Reno is right on the border of CA so I can ride to Cali right from my house. No need to register your bike in Nevada ether.

Thanks Kawi 380. Exactly what I needed to know.

On an other note, what kind of tires are you typically running? We ride mostly gnarly mountainous single track with lots of roods and ruts. I am running a Bridgestone M402 rear and a Michelin M12 up front.

I almost always use Maxxis maxxcross IT rear and M12 front. I ride both mountain and desert. I think you should do just fine with your tire selection. Wish I could go with you but don't have the time right now.
