Can You Ride on the Street?

Just wondering how many here can ride on the public roads legally? In our area we can ride on the streets if we have a drivers license and the bike is insured. You can't ride in the downtown core or on a major highway. Once in a while I'll ride my bike into work. Seems strange running pass cop cars and not being stopped (it's a new law).

I'm not entirely certain, but in WV where we own land I think you can ride on any unmarked secondary road, as long as you carry ID and wear a helmet.

It's not legal to ride on the road where I live, but a lot of people do anyway. Most of the time, the police won't stop you if they see you, but a couple times a year, they will set up road checks just for the purpose of writing tickets for ATVs.

You only need two tools in life -- WD-40 and duct tape. If it doesn't move and should, use the WD-40. If it shouldn't move and does, use the duct tape.

I ride on county roads all the time. I will sometimes ride on the Farm to Market roads here as well. I see other riding ATV's around here as well. I don't know what the legalities are. I have ridden the county roads out here for 30 years. We rarely see the sheriffs even patrol out here. I dont think they are going to take the time to hassle someone on an ATV unless you give them a reason.

I think you can ride on gravel roads in Missouri, I cant quote book and verse on it though.

In Arkansas, you are allowed to ride on roads if only going from trailhead to trailhead. But, I doubt many deputys know that.

Trouble is, the kids get out there and rut the roads up, and generally wreak havoc and give us all a bad reputation. A few years ago, I was riding on the gravel with my daughter on the back, just putting in 2nd or 3rd, barely off idle, and a sheriff deputy stopped me and said to get it off the road. Hell, I ride faster in my yard than I do on the gravel, at least I can get traction in the grass!

Want to bet! Kenora, Ontario Canada. Legal to ride on the street but you have to stay out of the downtown core. If I want to I can ride though the drive through of McD. I've take the bike to work (downtown) a few times this spring. Once in a while you see the police riding through town (they can ride in the downtown core) on their ATV's. Strange to see a rider with a side arm.

I know that some of the surrounding towns are considering passing similar laws if they haven't already.
