My first ATV had a VIN # , they were '99's.
As well as my current 2, a '00 & 02. They all had titles too. The street/trail bike a friend had in '72 had a VIN number, I didn't see it, but it did have a license plate, so in Il. there had to be a VIN.
In Tennessee and Missouri one can buy a ATV without a title, you get a bill of sale. Still has a VIN.
I agree Daniel, the fee is BS, here I would gladly pay it to ride on state land. There is quite a bit of rideable state owned property, can't ride on any of it.
I pay $50 every 2 years for a state sticker for my boat to be able to use it on lakes and rivers. And a license plate for the trailer every year.
Guys who hunt have to buy a hunting license, be it Ducks, Deer , Fish....
Also in Illinois a FOID (firearm owners Identification) is required to buy any weapon or Ammunition, with the exception of pellet and BB guns or ammo.
So don't feel to bad, it could be worse in NV. The part that pisses me off is what to $ will be used for, you can bet it won't be trail Maintenance, or education for riders. Most likely some project to make a Politician look good.
On a good note, Concealed carry is now law in Illinois. The last of the 50 states to allow it. Chicago is pissed about this. Chicago Politicians apparently thought a CC would make things worse in Chicago. Stupid ********. There were 70 shootings in the big city with 12 of them fatal, over this past holiday weekend. I doubt any of the gun owners in these were good honest Citizens.
