Read on another board that they may be rethinking the ban. Sounds like this blindsided a lot of local businesses. Fingers crossed.
I hope so. This is a classic case of… cutting your nose off to spite your face.

Another thing is this past year has seen an explosion in new people to the world of off-roading/ RV camping... a lot of new people out there uneducated in the proper etiquette. Should most know better? Yea but hey "common sense is not common". The influx of new people alone is a challenge and now say that a town or area that benefited from SXS business suddenly starts getting an influx of "Quieter" Jeeps or RV business... well they might make the mistake of thinking they can loose the longer term SXS business and replace with the new... However once everything opens back up it will be interesting to see if people go back to their previous habits or if this new Dynamic continues on.

We have all seen it , the trails are more crowed, RV parts are booked far out etc... is this a dynamic shift or a temporary one

Excellent analysis. This is spot on with what is occurring in our AO. The huge influence of out of towers is annoying in general to locals and they start looking for low hanging fruit to hate. A rancher with his 28' stock trailer can rattle down the road making more noise and dust that 5 UTVS and he goes completely unnoticed. 1 UTV going down the same road brings on the fist shaking.

Conversation with my wife this morning in a none too happy tone....."well what should I get for the weekend and next week at the grocery store? Make it simple because everything decent is going to be gone because we are starting tourist season."

A local Silverton business owner has started a referendum petition. With enough valid signatures, the issue will have to be put to town vote. Old rules would be back in place until vote occurs. Only registered Silverton voters can sign petition.

I wonder what they'd say about a Montana registered qudracycle? You'd probably have to fight and appeal the ticket in the local kangaroo court, but since its a legal road vehicle in the eyes of Montana, they have to honor the reciprocity laws of the state.

I was there last year with my Az registered Pioneer and they still called it a UTV, Az registers them with MC plates, I still had to get the CO off-road sticker. Probably not worth the time or money to fight that ticket, just my thoughts though.

Peoples Republic of CO requires a sticker for all vehicles on designated OHV trails regardless of any other plate. 🤨

Colorado OHV Use Permit Requirements
“All OHVs and motor vehicles (including motorcycles) that display a valid Colorado or out-of -state license plate must also display a current Colorado OHV use permit sticker when operated on any designated OHV trails in Colorado.”
There is a chart of what can go where with what sticker and plate at the link below

That’s got to be the dumbest setup I’ve seen in a while. Out of state UTV’s can ride on roads that CO residents can’t? 😑

But we're going to fast track wolf's so there's that. Probably a $10k fine if you hit one with a UTV with the wrong tag. This place has become the place I escaped from some 30 years ago. The stupid is breathtaking.
