It is that time of year, so just want to remind you of
legislation that took effect in July that provides for an annual permit (issued
by GF&P) for a motorcycle that can be converted and used as
32-20A-25. Permit to operate motorcycle as a snowmobile. Any
resident owner who has titled a motorcycle which has been modified to comply with the
definition of a snowmobile for use as a snowmobile on a state snowmobile trail or area
established pursuant to the provisions of chapter 41-19 may purchase an annual permit
valid from December first to March thirty-first, inclusive, for a fee of twenty dollars.
The permit shall be affixed to the motorcycle on the right side of the unit and shall be
clearly visible. The Department of Game, Fish and Parks shall collect the annual permit
fee imposed by this section and shall deposit the fees in the snowmobile trails fund
established by § 32-5-9.2.
