Question OR Off-road sitcker needed for a plated bike?

Can someone fill me in on the rules/requirements of the OR offroad sticker and ATV training requirements, for a plated XR 650L?

The DMV just told me if your bike is plated, then you do not need one.

However, the ORPD website simply states a class III ATV permit sticker is required for

For vehicles riding on two tires and that is actually being operated off highway. (it does not clarify plated vs not plated).

And then they talk about an ATV Saftey Eduication card is also needed. but it clarifies it only applies to OHV areas (but reading further, it states "Public Areas") Which is it?

Operator requirements (applies only to public OHV riding areas)

I plan to ride my plated XRL on BLM and USFS roads - . Do I need a sticker, and the "Safety Education Card"?

You need one, and the card. If you are going to ride in genuine OHV areas.

If you're sticking to fire roads, then no, your street plate is what you need to ride on the roads.

To ride trails you need an OHV sticker

It's only 10 bucks or so and the money is put to good use

If you are going to an ORV area (Browns Camp, Diamond Mill etc.) and ride the trails then you need the sticker and the ORV card. If you go to an ORV area, but are just passing through on the regualr forest roads, you don't need the sticker/card.

If you think you might visit one of those ORV areas, buy the sticker and get the card (It's free online and you might just learn something).

Matters not if you are in a designated OHV riding area or not, you can't ride trails legally without the sticker

The ride we have planned for this weekend is not going in or near a "designated OHV" area, so I think we will be fine without stickers / safety course endorsement. We'll be on FS roads in and around the Ochocos.

I'm not against the sticker, and will happily pay the $10 just to avoid an argument with the folks in green trucks, I just don't think I'll have time to go and get one before this weekend.

Don't want to start this whole thing up again...but if your bike is plated [street plate] you do not need any sticker or permit to ride dirt roads and "trails" in Oregon; at least outside of OHV sites...but of course I could be wrong...

As for the fees being put to a good use...Who is John Galt?

Call and talk to Mr. Lane...If you are plated you do not need a sticker to ride dirt outside of an OHV area...such as up here on USFS land.

Why does this keep coming up? Has the state changed the regulations and I missed it? Possibly. Otherwise no sticker needed if not within an OHV area.

Must be just me, but the government powers continue to spread like cancer..total nanny state telling us what we can do when and where and how we must do it...of course under penalty of persecution and prosecution.

Ps...I see the point of confusion...at one web site it states a permit is need on 'public lands' with no further elaboration but at the actually State of Oregon ATV site this clarifies that other statement...sometimes it is more about what is not said. Piss poor to leave out critical information. The red highlight is mine.

http://www.oregon.gov/oprd/ATV/pages/links.aspx

ATV Permit Information


You must display an ATV permit if you are operating your ATV on public land (and even then, the land must be specifically designated for ATV use). The ATV Permit Fee is $10.00 (Most permit agents charge an extra .50), and it is valid for two years. See the latest permit agent list. There are four classes of ATVs (see below).

It's $10.50 vs a $250 fine...
Pretty dumb not to have one if you have to question it.

I totally agree and have NEVER bought one of those trail passes for walking on public land.

Pshaw!!

the honest answer is NO!
you do not need a sticker,
or a plate, or a fee paid ribbon on yer handlebars.
You just need to be able to outrun a Motorola.
They'll never catch me!

OHV use

The OHV sticker in Oregon is a good deal. With a large number of people getting their bike plated, the end result was a depleting OHV fund for trails etc. So, instead of one or the other, the rule changed allowing the OHV sticker to be purchased for an already plated machine. The return on the dollar for each bike with an OHV sticker creates additional funds by 400% (38 to 40 some dollars) to the fund for a $10.50 investment. The fuel taxes used by OHV'ers are estimated and this amount is put into the fund. I have 5 OHV stickers, so my contribution is 5 x $40.00 = $200.00 collected on my behalf to the trail fund. I wish my 401K fund or any other investment payed of this good.

However, we must all make sure that this fund is managed properly so the money gets spent in the proper areas and not get moved to the general fund as has happened in some states.
