    In some communities you have to register your bicycle.

    Pegs on the rear with a lanyard tied to frame is legal I think. Riders must wear a helmet also.

    Be sure to check for sticker that states it is a 2 up though just to be safe. A lot of grey area there bud.

    Got my muck boots registered the other day. Pretty sure that means i can go anywhere now which will come in real handy this November while chasing the elusive whitetail.

    Let's see, $17 to register my $4500 14' boat for three years but $10 bucks a year to register my $139 kayak?

    I have recreation passports on all my vehicles, but can't recall the last time I used a boat launch to launch the kayak. It's 28# so I can carry it anywhere, which is why I have a 28# kayak.

    ALL vehicles that use our roads should be paying a fee.

We donot try to repeal them, why the bikers did and won when they repealed the helmet law ,can someone tell me why we keep allowing these stupid laws. why dont the people who drive repeal the seat belt law? I know why I dont ,LOL havnt got a clue where to start or how to organize such a deal.

    We are inching toward the regulation and taxing of everything here .Just like they do in the United Kingdom. If you want to beach comb((search)Their definition: Searching includes all such activities including searching; metal detecting; digging, or ‘scraping’.)) the shoreline there, it costs you $35 a year(@todays exchange rate) . Utter nonsense!

    A lot of the IF,IF ,IF rebuttals must be from those wearing rose colored glasses.

    I have a 12' flat bottom I paid less to buy than your kayak. I pay $17 to register it. Personally I am fine with it. I register 3 of my 4 boats now. If I have to pay $17 for my canoe every 3 yrs I won't hesitate or complain.

    Four kayaks and three canoes. I'll complain.

    14' has a 74" beam, 20" transom, and 0.100" hull. It's broken ice I can walk on. That was a new price 24 years ago. Beat the hell out of it and it still doesn't leak a bit. It's a commercial boat and my insurance agent could not find that model in his database to insure, and I've never seen another one.
