Unless said vehicle was manufactured for On Highway use and has standard motorcycle plates.

The exception to this is if you are recreating in State Trust Land then you need a State Trust Recreation permit no matter what vehicle you are in. The OHV tag gives you permission to ride through the State Trust land but not recreate in it.

The other exception is if the vehicle was originally manufactured for off -road use and weighs more than 1800 lbs. Then you still don't need an OHV tag.

I am no expert on the subject I just read the docs provided by the man that runs the program.

Thanks for the help.

Appreciate you getting that straight. I have three bikes right now and due to the emissions required I haven't paid reg or ohv for over a year on any. When the emissions requirements end on the 21st (if they do) then I will get them registered and not worry about the ohv since none require it if I am reading your post correct. Cheers

Oh by the way do I need ohv to ride on State Trust Land as one of the guys said earlier? I do that alot and if thats all I need then I would get it on one of the bikes to cover that.

OK cool. Thanks

Wade,

Agreed, it was good to see you and everyone else. The rest of the ride was good but I did think it would be a bit cooler at the top.

New to ADVrider and East of Phoenix Riders Group

New to ADVrider I just watched a YouTube with a group from here that did the Sheeps crossing run and it sparked my interest on this group.

Is this a Blood in Blood out deal or ?

I have been riding with the KLR650.net guys as well as AARG for about 2 years now along with a lot of my own east valley box canyon and beyond rides. starting to spread my wings a little to the west and would love some more guys to ride with.

I am looking to do the Sheep's Crossing run in a couple weeks trying to figure out dates now. I am pretty sure I am doing it in Reverse of the video I saw tonight Start point at Horseshoe turn off Ending at Bloody Basin and I-17. If anyone has any interest let me know.

Happy and safe riding

Sheeps Bridge

I am planning on riding up to sheep's bridge with a friend on June 29th.

I live in East Mesa, so it is a trek for me to get out to Cave Creek too. Let me know if you want to join up.

My buddy is an advanced rider and I am a total noob, so we will be riding slow and taking a bunch of pictures.

I'm thinking that with a klr and a noob the short uphill at the bridge is going to be challenging going that direction. Very doable, but challenging. Take lots of pictures to share and have a blast!

I heard that the hard stuff was after the bridge, so I be coming from a different direction? This will be my first time out there, but I guess if anything looks too crazy I can always turn around and head back.

To me, the hardest spot on that ride is the little rocky slope on the east side of the bridge. If you do the loop clockwise, it's a downhill slope. We usually stage at wildcat and ride down seven springs road and turn right onto bloody basin. It's a fun run, with a lot of off shoots you can do.

The slope isn't that hard to do, just intimidating when you're new to the sport.

You are correct, there is a steep hill you need to go down right after the bridge if you are coming from the Seven Springs side. I had to walk the DR650 down it but better riders than myself could ride it. The only other hard part is right at the dam as I fell there and walked it up as well. It looks like the next couple of weekends will be spent further north (cooler weather) or I might ask to join you. Have fun and be safe

About Sheep bridge... I am an off road noob. I have a fairly decent KLR and I rode it from 7 spring to Sheep bridge with no issue. Going from sheep bridge to bloody basin there were one or two spots that were rocky and challenging uphill but not too bad, I just chose a bad line. When we returned and did the full deal I rode my XR350 and really had fun. It made it really easy and enable me to have a good time. The difference a couple hundred pounds makes is incredible. I would run this 3 times a week in either direction on one of my dirt bikes, but I just don't think it would be fun on either the KLR or the Vstrom. I have ridden all of 7 springs and bloody basin on both of them and it was fun. Just my 2 cents. I am sure that some of the experienced long legged riders could have fun running sheep bridge on a SuperTenere but I am not built that way.

Well I guess you made it home okay Bill. I was about to text you.

Sheeps Bridge

There is no hard stuff on this ride with the exception of about 50 feet of a narrow rocky path which gets you from the river bank to the bridge on the east side.

The direction most run this loop is Seven Springs to Blody Basin and then down to the bridge and across which brings you to the hard right to get on this 50 foot section. Going down it is much easier as gravity is helping.....

Once your down by the river then its all easy stuff and under Horse Shoe Dam which has a little rough uphill but its not much trouble.

Enjoy.
