New BC off road reg's

Well the new off road regs will be mandatory in BC come June 1st 2015. Might not be too bad but here is a quote from the write up in my local news online paper.
"Too date, the off road vehicle frame work has been implemented in stages. Future regulations will follow that will flesh out ORV rules of operation,safety standards, penalties and conditions of use for a wide range of ORV vehicles such as ATV's, Dirt Bikes, Snowmobiles and Side by side's. End quote. This is the part that doesn't sit well. Could they implement rules like no wheelies? Certain max speed limit ? Conditions of use ? No hill climbing? Noise violations ? Kinda concerning in my opinion.

There's been a lot of discussion and information on the topic over at dualsportbc.com. They're down for site maintenance this weekend, but maybe we can import some posts or something.

Of course they could. I expect we'll see dB limits sooner rather than later. That's why we've all been talking about it and lobbying for the last couple of years.

I've heard a lot about this coming, but different implementation dates. I heard from a dealer that implementation at the dealer level starts Nov 30th/2014. This will include issuing of offroad plates when mandatory liability insurance is purchased. Private sale implementation starts June 2015. Word is quad mounted RCMP trail checks are really ramping up this spring. On private sales, back sales taxes are to be collected from 2010 on, and, if no sales receipt is issued, taxes will be collected based on motorcycle book retail values.

I can see a lot of red neck idiots with stolen dirt bikes riding the gravel pits giving up the sport.

On the island - the majority of land near the populated areas is E&N land grant - in other words private land. Basically the whole east coast fo the Island from Sooke/Victoria to Campbell River.

All of our riding on this land has been without permission from the owners (who are the forest companies). From time to time the forest companies would ask the cops to cite riders for trespassing. With the new law the cops can charge anyone, anytime with an offense. Nice!
