    All depends on state regs. Someone from Cali would be able to help far more than I but MN requires "complete fender coverage of the tires". In laymans terms, I don't dare street my K5 unless I'm on a very short road to a trail.

    yeppers, depends on the state. Even if your state requires fender coverage though, there is no reason you couldn't have removable ones for the street....

    Get thee to the CVC and see for yourself. It can be handy to have potentially relevant sections printed out in your glovebox, should you be pulled over.

    Note that proper attitude is also important when dealing with LEO's, particularly for 17 year old males. Ask me why I know this (I was your age once... :doah: )
