It's been explained pretty clearly, I think. Maybe some folks are just meant to be confused.

Hell yeah. I'd say more, but I need to try to be 'polite'.

I avoid the DMV like the plague. There are contract offices that are in the business of making customers happy. Unlike the DMV who aren't happy 'til you aren't happy.

AZ Auto License on Speedway across from the Subaru dealer, or there abouts, is awesome.

Just make sure, that you're not paying more than ~$30 for OHV and registration, or you're answering one of the questions wrong or the people that are trying to help you don't know what's going on.

So apparently I screwed up. I registered my DRZ as straight on-road. I didn't know this ohv registration existed. Can the contract offices correct my mistake and issue a refund? Or am I going to have to go back to the DMV to get it swapped over to primary ohv but street legal?

Yes. I've used that place on Speedway several times. Very quick and my time is worth way more than any small surcharge.

My original reply was in the instance were you have, as I did in my case, my bike already registered "normally" and wanting to add the OHV tag which I did online. Perhaps I should have clarified to prevent the douching that some of others felt necessary. But douches will douche.

Alright kids..play nice !

I registered my KLR650 as primarily off-road and with the OHV sticker my registration and OHV sticker was around $31.00. My two TW200's were like $29. 50 each.

You just gotta know how to register them. And they will not refund if you don't do it correctly. At least that is my experience.

Ditto yesterday for my XR250

Riding?

Looking at going for a ride tomorrow in the morning - something simple, just a nice
ride...
Since I've only been in Tucson for 2 weeks now I am thinking about exploring
the access road on the back side of Mt Lemmon.
Any suggestions, recomendations - anyone wat to go?

Thanks for the registration tips - I didn't know I'd need an OHV sticker too!

Happy Memorial Day!

mt.lemmon would probably be good idea right now. You never know when there will be another fire/restrictions as we head into the summer.

I'm heading towards the sonoita area tomorrow early for a two-up ride.

You get any takers yet? I have a bbq to be at around 3 pm. I am not looking for any radical ride. My bike is in the break in period, and my body is not conditioned yet, and still working on getting bash plate, bags etc.

I'm in SW Tucson. What time to start?

Where you riding from?? I'd say to do the Lemmon control road 'proper', it's best to ride Reddington Rd to the junction that leads to San Manuel, and then off to the control road on up to Summerhaven.... an then on down the slab into Tucson. If you want any downtime in the ride I described, it will easily take half the day.

I'd say just a ride up and down the control road itself would soak up 2-3 hrs...

I wouldn't mind a ride myself tomorrow, but need to finish it up by early afternoon. I'll check in here later and see what's happening... I'm not opposed to taking one of the street bikes either....

You can say that again. I tried one of them places and they had no clue about the OHV. I decided to go to MVD-Broadmont, and had absolutely a wonderful experience. Go early morning before they get cranky. Walked in, got right to a representative, paid my 25 bucks and was gone.
