    Yeppityyepyep ,

    I just found this out my darnself . The online license is a hassle and has very little to do with riding a motorcycle , but in 30 minutes or so ... you will have it .

    I am not sure about the 'Class III' thing . The one that I just got is called a 'Oregon All Terrain Vehicle Safety Education Card' .... go to www.oregonOHV.com

    Goo Dluck !

    If you have off road tags from your state Or. may honor it, not sure about the about honoring the Education card.

    It was nice to learn how to ride on the computer after 40+ years on the bike.:lol3

    My simple answer is:
    In an OHV park, get the card and permit.
    On a forest road, youre good as a licenced vehicle.
    On a forest road riding through an OHV park, probably should have it all.

    This. ^

    Oh, and the same permit sticker for the bike is also what you need for your jeep in those trails and on the dunes... ask how I know...:bluduh

    Also, if your bike is obviously loud avoid the guys on farm style quads in onesies, or seek them out for a db check... again, ask...

    well i got the license, 11 chapters of it. i don't even know how to respond to what i think of the idea that my motorcycle licence (which is internationally recognized to operate a motorcycle)is not good enough to use on public land. it is a wonder you don't have to have an eye exam and proficiency riding exam, being all safety minded and stuff. after all a blind or mentally disabled person can have a license to ride public lands and if i didn't have one, id have to let them drive... safety first though.

    lime juice and tequila spilt onyer desk top really helps to clean the glass covering!
    at least in one small spot!
    looks like Ima need a couple more limes anna nuther bottle of El Jimador to do the whole desk.:lol3:1drink
    Sorry Dan,,yer dark stout is a failure at desk cleaning, tho gosh knows I have spilt a fair share of that magical juice liberally! Sadly, it gets sticky when dry dried.
    However,,that black stout makes an AWESOME marinade for pork, with a bit of soy sauce, onion powder, garlic powder, salt and pepper, and a tiny bit of freshly shaved ginger root!
    Pork sucks up that black stout like a baby calf at his mama's titty! Yummy,!

    Stir fry city for lunch!,red bell peppers, a celery stalk, haffa fresh diced onion,hunksa fresh garlic,, the wonderful stout marinated pork loin slices,(overnight) and ,MAS HONGOS! arroz optional

    naw,,i wasn't either!:lol3 But then,, I can spit on the floor where I live,,without consequences or the evil eye, or even dis-approving glares and askance over the top of yer glasses hard looks!

    I remember when OMB and I watched Miguel order then devour a "Stout Float". When we asked him what he thought we got back "Hummm, don't think I'll ever order another one!"

    Even though time heals most wounds, as does a failing memory, I still wouldn't recommend it.

    Love stout, love ice cream, don't mix them.

    Every bike that passes, and there have been lots and lots, gives me that wistful feeling... (But I'm still having a great time!)
