well its actually pretty cheap and easy to get insurance
ITS NOT 2200$$ a year
(unless maybe your covering replacement loss of the quad)
all you need is liability i usually do 6 months a year
(just the warm months never been stopped in fall or winter!!)
ive been getting insurance for 2 years now...
and its 75$$ for 2 million liability for 6 mos which is the highest you need .....
says on my papers :::
for liability off road off hiway use only , only on any non paved roads or surfaces or roads deemed forestry or crown other than private.....
ive been stopped at stave and harrison cops ask for papers i show them and continue on in my day not a big deal.......
....2 cents

if you dont want insurance then dont get it but for 75$$ for 6 mos of trouble free riding up anylogging road or back road in b.c even just rippin into stave its not very much money.....

Outrun? Half the time I hear about an accident involving a quad and a truck on an FSR the guy is lucky to be alive...and lucky if the quad is driveable no matter how fast/big the motor is.

The thing is, sure there are some dumbasses to race their trucks on FSRs..but >EVERY< quad drives too fucking fast on those roads and is always in packs of two or more screaming around corners without a care in the world. What happens when you come screaming around a corner and drive into the side of a truck, or a truck goes over you? I bet the guy in the truck could out run you then.

If non-street legal buggies need trail insurance then quads do too.

If someone hit my truck in an uninsured quad the first thing I would do is grab his keys and a tire iron. A damaged quad would probably be worth enough to fix my truck.

Well great point on the truck park....but...(and this is assuming they arent RCMP) as far as if they're up for the chase....I hope if the chase is at least good enough they might loosen up and have a little fun with it...I carry insurance anyway (Capri 155 plus tax for anyone who cares) Its all in good clean (well a little muddy maybe) fun...

Give them a fake name and carry on they dont need to know if you carry I.D. And never mind it is a bunch of college kids trying to become forestry rangers working on the weekends as extra credit. So what can they really do they gave out a ticket they will be high on that all day and leave you alone any ways.

where can i get $75 insurance, i went to the local insurance place this morning and they told me $200 and something, 1or2 mil liability for 6 months for a 450cc quad. i dont like paying but 75 is a little easyer to swallow than 200+.

Capri ins would be cheaper $155 for a year.
