Default off-road license required in Oregon now?? even for out-of -staters

Maybe this has been posted and I missed it? Looks like Oregon is requiring 3-wheelers, quad riders, and off-road motorcycle riders to pass a test and obtain a off-road license to ride on public managed lands.

At least it's free (so far)

My kid is going to go to college there and I have been looking forward to using that for an excuse to get reaquainted with the Tillamook Burn area. It would really suck to get there, get a ticket and have to leave

It's STUPID!!!!!!! The peoples republic of Oregon is at it again. The test is easy, it's just jumping through hoops. I'd do it if I were you just to have it, but I agree, it's simply Soviet Oregon.

Here in Nova Scotia, Canada, we have mandatory on bike learn how to ride training for all riders. You can just imagine how all the motocross folks and people that had been riding for years felt about that change. The coarse is just the US MFS coarse. We also have to have insurance and registration, pay into a $40 a year trail infrastructure fund. Then we had to create a provincial organization to even access the fund. It's been a long past 6 years.

YIKES!!! Man, what moron communist decided that kind of control was a good idea? As it is I'd like to move to Idaho, which is much friendlier to off roaders. After that, I can't think of any other place I'd like to live.

A big part of our regulations came from input from our regional children's hospital. It was really driven by a rash of kids dieing on atvs( Read 3 kids on 1 ATV on the road hit guard rail and go down embankment . 2 die. A couple other kids around 8-10 years old driving parents 800 grizzly flip over in field and die. Not to mention the adults dieing on the dm things.) The ATVs have really done us in here. there are just 2 many of the dam things. The province commissioned a panel to look into the OHV situation and came back with a big report titled "OUT OF CONTROL". When they brought in half of the recommendations we lost half of our bike shops in 6 months.

They just need to ban the 4 wheeler like they did the 3 wheeler in the 80's as being unsafe.

I'm not keen on banning anybody. I hate furniture (quads) too. I figure if you can't balance, you shouldn't be riding off road. However, I don't want to be like the green police who hate us. I'd like them to stay at the coastal region and ride in the sand dunes, but again, I'm not keen on banning them.
