    In Michigan, you can operate them on the sides of the road if you have a slow moving sign, brake lights, headlights, and turn signals. Deere offers everything needed.

    Sorry I cannot help with PA.

    I live in PA also, on a two-lane state road. The kids ride ATV's on the road, like they were passenger cars, except they go faster than most legal traffic. I have had a couple close calls with them puling out in front of me. No one seems to bother them. Your Gator is a hell of lot safer than the ATV's the kids ride. I would bet that you are also a much better and safer operator.

    If I was a betting man,I would bet on you being able too ,especially in Pa. But,check with the DMV.
    For those of us that have missed it,how much land do you take care of?

    In Indiana we go through the DNR to get OHV or ORV permits for back roads. They are only good in certain counties but they have all of this printed on the DNRs website.
