    anyone know if it's legal to tow an OHV registerd vehicle on the street with it's own tires??

    this is what i found so far at the www.chp.ca.gov website.

    Even when carried in a trainer or pickup, all off-road cycles (and dune buggies) must display proper "off-road" registration or identification

    Re: from the mouth of the horse

    ARQ,
    Are you talking about just towing the OHV behind your actual rig w/o trailer? If so, then it does have to be registered. If it was on a trailer you wouldn't need all that. I towed my 72 with 31" tires and having D44 front axle on a trailer rented from Ryder trucks. I'd recommend always trailering it if you can. You just end up saving a lot more money in the long run. Tire wear, driveline components... whatever else might come up. I know there are trailers out there that can tow an OHV with tall tires. You just have to look at who's renting them in your area. Or you can prolly find one cheap in your area. Hope this helps

    James
