I'm not positive but I believe it is for those that are not "factory" 2 ups.

Even private property? How is it any different than riding double on a motorcycle?

Big brother keep us morons safe. I thought consenting adults can do whatever they want if it doesn't put anyone else at risk.

having done it , it puts a lot of weight too far back and makes for hard steering on many ATV

like anything you have to realize your driving for 2 and it will not handle like when your on a 1 up machine by yourself.

a lot of injury and death started with >1 person on a ATV not designed for it.

a good comparison would be the 15 passenger van , cool it has 15 seats , and a 1 ton weight limit if you put 15x200 pounds for each person = 1 1/2 tons add in a roof rack with luggage for 15 and you probably have 500 more pounds on the roof. most fatal roll overs in 15 passenger vans happened when over weight.

I owned one for 18 years and have been driving them for 25 they like an atv with 2 people they handle very different when you have 10+ people in a van you have to take that into account when driving and not enough people do.

I am not surprised they have done this. People often lack any common sense today so they try an make it through changes in law.

I disagree with it on principal however.

In WI that would have people bolting foot pegs on and that wouldn't change what is already happening.

unless you mean factory installed foot pegs

It's going to be a real pain In the butt when two of us are heading out for a day of Ice fishing. One of us Is going to have to ride In the sled. And that's not a good thing.

Yes factory design foot placement for the passenger. Is what I'm referring to.
