Somebody please take me trail riding on the 28th! (Tucson or Phoenix)

I'll be driving through and would love to go trail riding there. I've seen pictures, but I've never been able to actually ride it. I'm a good rider and would like to go on some technical trails.

Which bike should I bring, a 450X, or a 250 two-stroke? Also, should I bring a trials tire or knobby?

Both bikes are Oregon plated but I wouldn't call them street legal, and both bikes have bigger fuel tanks.

From what I've heard, Arizona isn't picky about bikes appearing street legal. If it has a plate, it should be good.

Maybe some AZ folks can confirm that?

Thanks. I'm meeting a dude from Facebook in Mesa. He said I'll be fine with whatever.

if you have an Oregon OHV tag, you can ride on non-road trails without hassle. Get on a road (we have street legal dirt roads) and run into law enforcement...you could be cited for operating an unlicensed vehicle. There are a ton of places you can ride w/out hassle and w/out breaking the law.

Sycamore, Wildcat, and Boulders are all OHV tag friendly areas and have technical trails. If you are on State Trust Land, you will need a state trust rec permit since you are out of state registered. Instate registered OHVs get to access State Trust Land as part of the OHV decal.

hope it helps.

Thanks, I have a license plate for each bike (and insurance), but I don't have all the blinkers and stuff. Both bikes have current registration too.

No problem. Az does not require blinkers, hand signals are ok.

What you do need for street legal:
Headlight
Brake light
License plate light
Rear view mirror
Horn
Eye protection
Insurance
Registration

Thanks! I'm meeting a guy (Chad) in Mesa and then he said we'll drive about 30 minutes where we'll ride. I didn't get the name of the riding area but, judging by his pics, it's going to be technical.

I'll find out where we are going...maybe it's the same place.
