I saw a post from mid 08 but rather than dig up a old one, heres a new one.
Here is the introduction explaining it.

http://www.tn.gov/revenue/notices/titlereg/08-21.pdf

Here's the medium speed vehicle affidavit needed.

Been hounding my county clerk about loopholes to register my rhino. he keeps saying no way. either he doesn't remember the passage of this, or doesn't want it on the road. going to inquire with him when i get home from reno nv and figure out what his deal is. hope to have tags in a few weeks. cost is $14.75 from what i saw on a brimstone rec forum.

What are the specific requirements for windshield, etc., that must be met.

Must you run DOT-approved tires, for example?

the following is what i copied and pasted directly from their application form. tires are not mentioned at all. so i am assuming that off road tires are acceptable.

however swearing to a 35 top speed might be a issue for moral people. i know lots of morally challenged people it wont bother though. who makes a 35 govenor for the rhino???roflmao

Our County attorney received a letter from the state and YES, if they are modified to meet these requirements and you sign an affidavit claiming these mods have been met they MUST issue you your tag.

It is possible here in tn but even with tags you are not allowed on a street posted over 40mph. The 40mph is the catch other wise mine would be tagged. I got an e-mail about this some time last year with all the requirements which was not a lot but included a windshield (did not state full), rear view mirrors, turn signals, seat belts, and must run over 30 but not allowed over 35mph and not allowed on a road posted over 40mph.

If the clecrk still refuses to register your machine I can fax you a copy of the letter the county attourney got from the state regarding the issue.

Keep in mind the affidavit is the key, it claims under purgery that you have met the requirements, even the speed modification. once that is signed it takes the liability off the county, state and clerks office, they do not inspect your machine either.

My Dad has his Rhino 450 tagged and many others here. Scott county clecrk is issueing tags and they are legal on any Tn roadway with a posted speed limit of 40mph and less.

No this one is from the State Dept of vehicle registration the county attourney didn't think it was legal either so He sent in a letter asking for clarification, it was explained as he sent in MSO's from Yamaha Kawasaki and such asking if such machines could be modified, and they can.

Neither, it's smaller than a car plate, bigger than a Mc plate, says medium speed vehicle in the center with numbers and letters like a regualr tag, this letter won't be posted on the web site, it was a private letter. I faxed it to the number above
