    I live by a simple rule here in Colorado..... If the trail exists as an OHV trail on the Forest Service or BLM MVUM map.....and I am going to ride that stuff.... Then I purchase and put an OHV sticker on the bike that I will be riding those trails with.

    Annually......

    My WR426 that is plated has a sticker
    My Wife's TR230 that is plated.....has a sticker
    I even put a sticker on my 950 Adventure.

    I do not sticker my 1200GS...even though it runs down a lot of dirt roads.


    And at the end of the day.....every $25.25 that I spend on a sticker....I know that at least $17 of it is going to trail work and maintenance.

    I hope you guys don't stop there, I got all that and some.
    A sticker on my mountain bike, one on my off road vehicle, one in my pocket when I go hiking and sometimes I buy an extra sticker just in case I lose one so that I could replace it.

    I'll probably be getting sticker this year (2nd year with the GS). Just never know where I'll end up and as it was mentioned. It helps maintain the trails.

    I was looking in the CP&W Total Licensing System but couldn't find any mention of the OHV permit. Anyone know where it's hiding in that system?

    And that means anyone riding the TAT needs one as it goes over Hancock.
    I doudt anyone has one in practice, but who knows LEO might setup this year at the base as Hancock sees a ton of TAT traffic every year. Some guy on his DRZ from the East Coast is saying I need what to ride on this road, you've gotta be kidding??? And then turns around and goes another way.

    In the end this is so the Jeep crowd pays a fair share to the pot too.

    Norm, there's a couple of trails left on that list I haven't been on yet. Let's turn that list into my bucket list.
    (OK, I'll just walk those that have the word "crawl" in it.)

    NOPE. Need an OHV permit if you will ride an OHV trail.
    If you ride roads maintained by state road funds no permit, if you ride OHV trail better get the permit.

    Effective July 1, 2014, Title is required for all power sports vehicle dealers and auctioneer sales. OHV titling is optional for private party to private party sales. For titling information, see Titling Off Road Vehicles SB13-280 on the Department of Revenue website.


    Who Needs to Register


    Colorado OHV Registration requirements:

    FYI, maybe most people already know this, but this was my first OHV permit purchase and I found out the hard way.

    OHV Permits are valid for 4/1-3/31, not a calendar year. So, when I purchased an OHV Permit at Walmart they gladly sold me one. However, it's only good through 3/31/2017. This is not very useful to me and tried to return it or change it or anything. Nope. Completely non-refundable. You buy it that's it. Make sure you are buying for the timeframe you actually want.

    Yes a big fail point to the CO system. Permits are good April 1-Mar 31 regardless of when you purchase. Utah is good one year from purchase. Wish CO would change to similar

    Dunno when you bought it, but if it was winter and can't ride and therefore no value received, sounds like a bit of a charitable contribution to me. :evil

    At a minimum, it went to a good cause.

    Cross posted this in the CDR Master Thread as a heads up. http://advrider.com/index.php?threads/cdr-adv-routes-master-thread.763745/page-8

    I'm figuring the Rangers might target Hancock when they see the traffic from TAT ADV riders. COBDR riders may be affected too if they chose Hancock these next 2 years until Cottonwood opens back up.

    I'm guessing Hancock is going to be a busy place.

    Regarding Cottonwood pass closure, I doubt you'll see that traffic moved over to Hancock. Maybe some small plated DS, big adv, I've never seen one on Hancock.
    I'll say Monarch pass will get busy.

    I rode Tincup, Cumberland and Hancock yesterday and for a Monday it was super busy! We did see a couple riding Tincup on a F650 Sertao and an F800GS - both fully loaded. I wouldn't recommend it and I did help pick up the F800 once. Hancock was better than Tincup but I wouldn't try either on a big loaded bike unless you like that sort of pain.
