SomethingFishy, I see you did a duel register on your new quad. Does a quad with tracks need to registered as ORV on lakes and road ditchs in winter???

Yes it needs to be registered as an ORV with the tracks to be legal any time of year.

I personally have not had an issue on the lakes, but after hearing warnings that others were given I asked the CO working the Atv Fair and he stated it needed the ORV sticker. I went to the DMV, they gave a quick call over to the DNR office to confirm and $38.50 later I had a 3 year sticker. I did this all at the St. Cloud branch.

I will also need to confirm but I believe it is legal to drive on the shoulder of the road, rather than in the ditch. Not quite sure what it will all allow, the ice fishing was the only reason I cared.

Josh, did you trade your old one in? I swear I saw it sitting outside of Jims.

Dual registering is a scam! This state is a joke, if it's registered it should be good for everything. Just another way of squeezing money from us. I will not be dual registering my ranger for when I have my tracks on.

Next thing you know you'll have to have an additional license on your vehicle to drive on the ice, shoot I probably just gave them another idea, when will the nonsense stop?

When you willingly reconfigure your machine, you put it into a different category.

I do agree that any ATV with tracks added should still be considered an ATV.

Here's a few updated pics with the new Custom Brushguards and fuel-pack on the front . The only thing I have left to do is install some hand/thumb warmers.

Nice looking machine as always Josh.

I'd be a little concerned about those brake lines being exposed as much as they are.

I've thought that myself but they are pretty tight in place. I have been considering adding some front/rear aluminum a-arm guards. But the Richochets are the best and they have a price that proves it.

Josh,

Congrats on the new ride. Nice looking rims. smile Have you had the tracks on it yet? With the fuel pack on front and no rack extentions, where will the auger be mounted? Brushguards look sweet. How are the Piaa's mounted?

After running 300+ miles with the tracks on my machine this past winter, the XP with EPS would be the way to go.

Haven't had the tracks on it yet, although I did test drive one with them.

The front cargo box fuel box comes off and a regular rack/rack extender snaps in with the lock'n'ride and I will have an auger mount on that. I can also put the auger under the Otter cover, it rides securely they way I modded the Otter.

Another benefit of the cargo box/gas cans on the front is it helps keep the front end on the ground grin

The Piaa's are mounted to tabs off of the custom brushguard, they were made specefic for the piaa's.

I hear ya on the gas cans smile Did the piaa's come factory installed or did you add them? The EPS with tracks should be huge for meneuvering when moving snow.

    • which models of striker bibs/ coat?
    • That little doe is a sweetheart. Reminds me why I gave up hunting. But I did it for more than six decades from MN to MT to AK and Canada. Before somebody jumps in with a snide  comment, I don't care if YOU do it but it is just not for me any more. Carry on. Nice pix....couple nice looking bucks.
    • I fish for monster bass too. But yeah, when one is the master of walleyes one tends to be an elitist... 
    • I agree; stay away from the extended warranty.  If my dealership (Village Chevrolet) won't honor the original warranty, what makes you think they will honor an extended warranty?  This problem was discovered well before my warranty ran out and they still treated me like an ugly sister...

    • You two must be elitist walleye guys. 
    • I can't say I'm much in agreement with Gary Johnson on this issue and I can admit it. I will say however that it makes more sense than the deal Pence struck with Carrier.   1. The carrier deal handed away state money while still being a net LOSS of jobs in that state. Johnson's program enticed new business into his state and resulted in a net GAIN of jobs and probably tourism dollars as well.  2. I think these types of deals should be handled as locally as possible. It's called representative government. Maybe it makes sense in the New Mexico deal that it be handled at the state level since it probably effects the state as a whole at least to some degree but I don't know. The Indiana deal should have been handled locally, especially if any of the tax cuts promised were property taxes. Those benefit communities at a more local level and the jobs saved benefit communities at a more local level. The state government possibly should not be handling these things but the Federal Government most assuredly should not be involved in these deals.  3. I'm pretty sure that the threat of interference with federal contracts had much more to do with the Carrier deal anyway so why did they give Carrier any tax breaks? I thought Trump was a tough guy and a strong armer? In the New Mexico deal, tax cuts are about the only leverage someone would have to bring that extra revenue and jobs into the state.   I'll say it again, I'm really not in favor of the government picking winners and losers. I do think the Pence deal is something that happens every day but the only difference is it happens at a local level and you don't have a blow hard President-elect taking credit for it normally. Time will tell whether it was a good deal or if the rest of the manufacturing community will hold the Government for ransom now like every professional sports franchise does these days.    Gary Johnson is in favor of replacing the current Tax code with a 'Fair Tax" system.
