Pretty country you got there.
Boy, the gator and the tractor both have a real nice road gear.
Thanks for sharing!

I like it when you like it (or so).

 

It's a XUV 550 and the speed is 30+ mph. That fast enough, when you'll see the country. We call it "entschleunigen" (downshifting, unplug, decompress)!

Maybe "That you like it" ?
As in you enjoy it when others enjoy it also?

Wolfgang, Germany's a lovely country with some great forests and countryside. I used to drive a JD Gator 6x6 back in the early 2000's for work. A great bit of kit it was. Cheers Andrew

Can you license such rigs there?  Not aware of any laws in US allowing those as standard transportation. PLUS, on a road, you would get run over or off I'm sure by other drivers.

No probs to get the licence. And, if you want drive any vehicle on a road, you need a driving licence, too - except you'll drive w/ your bicycle... And bicycle drivers are not run over all the time. :poke:

Your bicycle riders probably stay to the side and not out in the middle of the road!

There are a few states that allow side by sides to be road legal.

Michigan is quite simple. Dot approved tires. Windshield. Wiper. And all the lights. It can be inspected and licensed.

Those John deere rigs are nice. I looked at a John deere 850rsx. Sweet ride but cost more than my pickup

That would be great! And it would be great, if the bicycleriders use their lanes... If you meet bigger groups, they'll stay in the middle of the road, and that's not forbidden. It's only forbidden to use the Autobahn, if you're slower then 36 mph (60 km/h).
