Bought a Can Am 400 Max 2 years ago for our trip to Mexico.  Had a blast!.  But we live up here in Washington and what  PITA.  More rules than you can shale a stick at.  Can't ride em on Forest Service roads, can't ride em except in designated ATV areas, can't can't can't.  Wonder how they sell so many up here.

Sounds just like the Washington State I remember.  Have they come up with a rule for the number of times one can flush yet? ??? ??? ;D

Since my post Nebraska passed a law allowing atv use on the street, Our little town of Fairbury passed an ordinance that lets us ride now. We can also ride on county roads in the area. ;D

In Arizona if the ATV is street legal, you can license it just like a motorcycle. Since the gas prices have gone up we're seeing a lot more of them running around town. I think there is a restriction on which roads you are allowed to travel on. I don't think you're allowed to take them on the interstates for example. Not sure about the road restrictions though.

Im also in California. We usually hit Stoddard, Johnson Valley. Once in a great while Big Bear. Heading out to Salton Sea after Christmas. I ride a Yamaha 660R, and my daughter rides a Polaris 90. Its allot of fun. We usually go with friends, or family that also ride. We love it.

Good place to ride in Oklahoma is the Lake Murry area near Ardmore.  Easy riding or challenging depending on your desires.  Also good camping (full Hookups) at the designated atv area. I ride yamaha 450 4x4 -wife yamaha 350  4x4 bruin.  have fun ---joe

In places of Western Kansas the rule is "If it's pee let it be, if it's brown flush it down."  Also have all kinds of water restrictions.  When you can and can't water your yard or not at all, can't wash your vehicle at home - car wash only.  Get discounts for low flow hardware too.  They keep track of how many in your household and you are alotted a set amount, go over than and get penalized.  Anybody else lived with water restrictions??  I find as I move from place to place people look at me funny when I ask if there are any!!!

Places throughout Utah have restrictions in the worst of summer heat.  Some towns do not allow watering lawns but one day a week or some say only for a set amount of time in the mornings.  Some have restrictions on amount of use doubling or tripling the bill if it goes over the set amount.  Some of the car washes have gone to the recirculating systems reusing the water from the car washes for additional cars washes.

Another Polaris Owner here.  We have a 2004 Polaris Sportsman 700, and a 2005 Polaris Sportsman 500 HO.  Both are stump climbers.  I use the 700 for snow plowing, and have gone through 2 blades through the last 4 years.

We love to ride around the Taylor Reservour area North of Gunnison CO, and South of Aspen CO.

A lot of posts since my absence, by the way, I was the original poster.

They have put gates up the road here, so its quite hard to ride anymore, blame people that use the areas to dump trash all over the place.

New guy here and also a family ATVer.  Two Sportsman 500s and two Honda Recons, we spend most of our ride time in Oregon, as already mentioned the Peoples Republic of Washington makes riding here near impossible.  We've ridden all over in Oregon; heavily in NE Oregon, but down to the Oregon Dunes (annual trip) and down to SE Oregon to ride the Alvord Desert.  We also took a great two week trip in 2007 to Southern Utah, rode Sand Hallow, Coral Pink Dunes, around Bryce Canyon and the Paiute trail.

First pic is at the Alvord Desert looking West at the Steen Mountains, other pic is me trying to make a Utility ATV fly a bit.
