Moto Laws regarding riding on the public roads

i was wondering what the law was in your city about riding your dirt bikes on the road, here in puerto vallarta, you can ride any atv or dirt bike on the road without plates, as long as you have a helmet, whats it like in your city?

Dirt bikes and atvs prohibited, but in our town we have a bylaw that during the winter months we can ride snowmobiles in town as long as you are going from your residence to the nearest trail (and back). You can't go to store etc.

Depends on where you're at. Around here you can't ride on paved roads (generally speaking) unless your bike is street plated. On public land though some roads are open, and others are used to tie trail segments together.

In New York State... your ATV/bike must be licensed and insured... then you can cross the road legally. There are some remote areas where some dirt roads are legal but it generally is a designated area and you have to be a member. Very restrictive in NY State.

Around here you can ride anything as long as its plated and insured. Remarkably easy to plate a dirtbike in tx just a title, dual stage head & tail light, lic plate light and mirror and good to go! No helmet required
Funny thing that, it's against the law to drive a lifted 3/4 ton 4dr longbed pickup unless youre wearing a seat belt, but you can fly down the hwy on a 320lb two wheeler without a helmet on.
