    For those who ride in the Pine Barrens of NJ

    All ECEA events within state owned lands are by special use permit both enduros and dual sports and have been for decades.... If fact any event within the state forests require a special use permit.
  4. Senate Committee to Hold Hearing on OHV Use on Public Lands Contact Your Senator to Have Your Voice Heard The House had its hearing now the Senate will have its turn. As you may recall, a House Natural Resources Subcommittee held a hearing on OHV use in March and we asked you to weigh in at that time. Your efforts paid off. While the testimony from several of the witnesses had an anti-OHV slant, the actual comments from the Members of the Committee were largely supportive of managed OHV recreation. Now it is important to weigh in on the Senate hearing. The Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee has scheduled an oversight hearing “to receive testimony regarding off-highway vehicle management on public lands” on June 5, 2008. The witness list has not been set as of this time, but it is important that OHV enthusiasts weigh in with members of the Committee to make sure they understand the importance of continued and improved OHV recreation on federal lands. Please click the take action button below to send a message to your Senator, who is an Energy and Natural Resources Committee Member, outlining your support for OHV recreation on federal lands. ARRA and other national OHV organizations are working with the Committee to ensure that the voice of OHV enthusiasts will be heard at the hearing, but we need your help to ensure that each member of the Committee hears from the OHV community prior to the hearing. http://www.arra-access.com/campaign/senate_naturalresources_ohvuse (on the right side under "take action" if you are a member just fill in your email and your prefix and send.... if not fill out your info and send..) Send a letter to the following decision maker(s): Senate Committee on Energy and Natural Resources Below is the sample letter: Subject: Support Continued and Improved Access to Federal Lands for OHV Recreation Dear [decision maker name automatically inserted here], As a constituent and a member of Americans for Responsible Recreational Access (ARRA), I write to make you aware of my support for responsible off-highway vehicle (OHV) recreation on federal lands in advance of the Energy and Natural Resources Committee hearing scheduled for June 5. I enjoy OHV recreation and know first-hand that it is a legitimate and sustainable form of recreation on federal lands. The reasons people ride OHVs on public lands are as varied as the people who ride them. For some, motorized recreation provides an opportunity to spend a family day in the outdoors; others enjoy the opportunity to see much more in a single day than would be possible on foot; some use their OHV to access remote camping, fishing and hunting locations, but all OHV enthusiasts need your help to ensure continued access for our form of recreation. I understand the need for management of OHV activities, but I would like to be clear that effective management does not equal wholesale closures. The U.S. Forest Service and the Bureau of Land Management are currently in the process of developing designated systems of trails and routes for OHV use, as both agencies understand that continued access is contingent on effective management. Both agencies also understand that OHV recreation has a place on public lands and that motorized recreation can be provided for in an environmentally sustainable manner. Thank you for your consideration. Please use the June 5 hearing as an opportunity to highlight responsible OHV recreation as a positive, legitimate use of federal lands. Take Action!

    Street legal in NJ?

    Here is the "list" of motorcycles and scooters "thereby approved for titling and registration in this State" (NJ)... took that from the disclaimer on the page... here's the rest, pretty much spells it out..... DISCLAIMER The NJ Motor Vehicle Commission (MVC) provides the following list of manufacturers whose motorcycles meet Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards (FMVSS) and are thereby approved for titling and registration in this State. The listed manufacturers have obtained National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) certification and have been issued a World Manufacturer’s Index (WMI). Also, the motorcycles meet standards promulgated by the Federal Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for Noise Emissions and Exhaust Emissions. All motorcycles must have permanently affixed NHTSA and EPA (2) labels before New Jersey can issue a title and registration. Fully-electric motorcycles will only display a NHTSA label since they have no EPA measurable emissions. Listed below are the currently approved manufacturers whose vehicles can be titled and registered in New Jersey: To get all the details relating to each certification, you might be able to find it on that organization's website, but I would be suprised if they give it away free. It's pdf, so takes longer to open. It is from NJ MVC's website... http://www.state.nj.us/mvc/pdf/Vehicles/mc_manufacturers.pdf

    All Nj Riders

    Yes this battle should be gathering stream once again from the supports of the past bills that were 'delayed'..... On another NJ note.... Save Brendan T. Byrne Forest Rally When: Saturday May 17, 2008 What Time: 1 PM to 3 PM Where: Pakim Pond in Brendan T. Byrne State Forest Governor Corzine is proposing a budget cut that would abandon nine of the New Jersey state forests and parks. One of them is the Brendan T. Byrne State Forest, which seems to be a prime area for hikers, campers, horseback riders, picnic groups, motorcyclists, horse and carriage enthusiasts, cyclist and dog sledders which are some of the many groups that use the forest. We would like to see the various groups and individuals attend this rally. Representatives of the various groups are welcomed to address the rally. The purpose of the rally is to show Governor Corrine that access to these forests and parks is critical to the quality of life in New Jersey. His Passive Recreation Plan in reality is the abandonment of these parks and forests. This would equate to having open parks that would have no public facilities or staff to maintain them. We cannot gamble that his Abandonment Plan for the parks and forest is a hollow threat. Without resistance to the Governor’s proposed plans, the parks could be closed as early as July 2008

    Most forgiving rear blinkers?

    They bend better if hit in the front, in the rear if you were to brush up against a tree at speed, the engineered bend is not a factor. hey might get ripped off like any other???

    Possible move to NJ?!?!

    Not legally, but there is an large amount of hare scramble events they could ride in just for kids and the MX parks in the area.. Look for the East Coast Enduro Association and the Atlantic Grand Prix, both have kids races maybe 20 per year. Posted on the board many many times.

    Possible move to NJ?!?!

    If you like to ride off road and not just on MX tracks and pits, get yourself a factory Dual Sport, Husky or KTM 250 to 500cc+, DRZ400S, there are other options too, BMW X-challange, XRL650. Based on what you have now RMZ450 either the Husky 450 or 510 or a Ktm 450 or 525/530, there are plenty of legal riding oppurtunities and off road racing for you with those types of bikes. And you can still use it for some local commuting around town and the base..

    Possible move to NJ?!?!

    Yes it is closing... Lease is up and there is no renewing it. No replacement as of now. WWW.NJOHVA.COM join and get invovled, if your under 18, get your parents to join, even if they don't ride...
  14. Just make sure you have a state title also... no off road registrations, if they have one out there
