I think this is going to be the case for a while since no one knows the rules. Then when people start acting fools it will go the opposite direction and they will start making sure you have every single thing.
Also wouldn't try that somewhere like ure
While I do agree, this is a place that this is common. Kids will pull up on their dirt bikes and fuel up in front of the county police. They are pleasant, respectful and dont ride like idiots and the police let it slide.

I have seen several around Greenville driving around. But every one I saw was driving on a 4 land road with a turning lane that has a speed limit of 45mph.

Am I missing something? I thought UTVs were restricted to any road 35mph or less and up to 55mph as long as they were not 4 lanes. Am I mistaken? Or are these guys being idiots?

That's the way I understood the language. My guess is they didn't read the bill.

My guess is as long as noone stops them, they will push it as far as possible.

My guess is also that such things are what will ruin it for everyone.

Yeah not in Winston. They ride in packs doing wheelies thru downtown breaking all kinda laws right in front of police...but they do nothing because they don't want that Pastor that looks like a damn Mondoshawn from 5th element standing in front of a bank of mics with 400 "activists" of similar shade speaking about it on the national news

I was going to street legal mine, but I had a moment of clarity with taking my machine on the road. Call it the firefighter in me that's been to many extrications. These machines are BARELY substantial enough to survive a crash involving only themselves. Now plow into it with something like those passenger cars in that same picture. Zero survivability. Guess I am getting old.

I 100% agree. I am only considering it because I live close enough to downtown, that I could drive a golf cart, except for the 1/2 mile of 55mph road. That and being able to to ride some of the forest roads in wnc.

My tags with sales tax on a vehicle that I have owned for over 10 years was $130.

If you have a solid proof of ownership then it won't be that bad. You need proof of ownership, proof of insurance, the mvr form filled out and a NC safety inspection just like a car.

Here is the form: https://www.ncdot.gov/dmv/downloads/Documents/MVR-59.pdf

Here are the requirements:

  • Headlamps
  • Parking brakes
  • Rear view mirrors
  • Reflex reflectors
  • Seat belts
  • A speedometer
  • Stop lamps
  • Turn signal lamps
  • Vehicle identification number (VIN)
  • A windshield with wipers or helmets for all passengers
I put a horn on mine because it came with the street legal kit that I bought. I also put a tag mount and light on it.
