I have a problem with this too. I wear complete gear; helmet, jacket, pants, gloves and boots. But I choose to wear them because it keeps me safer in case of an accident. It's my choice (at least in TX). I'm even thinking about buying a motosafer vest (body air bag). I just think it is not government's place to enact these types of laws. If they could just stick to the basics and quit looking for stuff to regulate and control. More laws, more regulations equal more government agencies, employees and costs to us.

Local governments need to provide basic services, police, fire, schools, sewer/water, etc. Feds need to secure the borders and protect the country. I don't how stuff got so out of hand. The size and scope of local, state and federal governments has gotten ridculous.

Cal folks, I'm a bit surprised this happened under the radar it seems. Did this pass under the CORVA radar?


I don't think they knew about it either, will ask Jim Woods next time I talk to him, which should be Thursday. It seems as if this was all pretty quietly done. One thing mentioned last night was that the SXS guys were getting hammered with legal threats, etc. and this was one way to stave off being shut down. Not sure how all that comes together/interrelates.

Thanks nayther, concerned me since your group seems pretty well organized so I wondered if this had flown under the radar.

LOL Dave not at all. Actually what really concerned me is how effective the CA off road community has been at fighting things, I figured it's not a good sign for other states if things like this slip through as well organized as those groups have been.

I think what Y-Guy is trying to say, is that if this thing tanks, we need someone (*nayther*) to blame.

I'm not too active in things not two wheel oriented, maybe Pirate 4x4 would know more. Another source I'll check with is real big in the SXS world and former owner/promoter of Hammer King. Should know more by Friday.

Thanks for throwing me under the bus Dave! JK

Government Creep is exactly what this is!

First they will legislate all of the fun out of our sport under the guise of safety. When enough people get tired of the BS and stop going or move to another state, the state will simply close access to the areas we love.

In CA you have to wear a helmet and cant get a license plate for a sxs. In AZ you don't need a helmet, can load a rhino up with four people, and drive it down the road!

CA just doesn't get it- I have completely given up on the state!

But look on the bright side. We are going to have a really fast train between Bakersfield and Fresno!

+1 Very well said. I am a motorcycle enthusiast and I am an ATGATT rider - all the gear, all the time. But I chose to to do this. The State of Florida does not mandate it ; nor should they. I detest the creeping nanny state.
