    I have never heard of anyone being fined about the 2 up, personally not the slightest concerned.

    We just drive through any way we can. A couple trips through and there will be a trail

    another question about 2up seats. are they needed ? does it make it legal to have a passenger ? the way things are going, I think id have to take my gf on most of the rides baiting, or ice fishing.

    I'm not saying they are enforcing it but I looked it up after I posted it and to LEGALLY carry a passenger it has to be a factory 2 up with separate footpegs and the passenger must be 8 years old and able to reach the footpegs. Will you get charged? Likely not unless you drive though the middle of town. I know several guys that use the aftermarket 2up seats but mostly to take the kids and grandkids around the farm.

    Where I live we can drive inside the town of Russell and my village. No problems.

    I don't know about last fall but the fall before the OPP nailed every hunter they found in the Sudbury area with a passenger on their ATV. Riders were furious about it but nothing they could do. The OPP lost a pile of respect for pulling off that stunt.

    It can happen, just like speeding. Everyone on my road travel's at 100 and it's marked 80. I have followed the OPP numerous times doing 100. Can they pull me over most certainly but quite unlikely.
    But Sh$$ happens.

    Was this on or crossing a road?
    If so the charges were legal.
    If off-road there is no law prohibiting it.
    Trick is knowing were the HTA or ORVA applies.

    I've owned Honda and Polaris, got rid of the Hondas and have had a Polaris 570 since 2014. Been a good bike. Considering the price difference of the 570 to a Honda I will stick with the Polaris. Both will have repairs but in the long run I have been much more satisfied with the Polaris. Mind you, I bought the Polaris new so ya never know what ya get when ya buy used. Kinda seems like people sell their bikes when they suspect big problems.
