Create a "Type 3 Motorcycle" (Autocycle) in Wisconsin

The outdoors are our passion.  We are a family-owned, power sports dealer located in Altoona, Wisconsin.  Our doors opened in 1981 and we haven't stopped serving our community since. 

When Polaris released their latest motorcycle, the three-wheeled Slingshot, we were hooked.  With side by side seating, steering wheel, seat belts, and a five speed manual transmission, it is truly an automobile unlike any other.

The Polaris Slingshot is currently able to be registered in the state of Wisconsin as a "Type 2 Motorcycle" which restricts drivers to hold a valid motorcycle license. By creating the "Type 3 Motorcycle", or Autocycle category, consumers who want to drive these types of vehicles would need to only have a valid drivers license. This legislation would enable many more consumers who are interested in these products, easier access to them.

The 2015 Bills that were introduced, AB435 and SB348, were adversely disposed of at the end of the last legislature session (April 7, 2016). Our neighboring state, Minnesota, adopted similar autocycle legislation that allowed their residents to operate the Polaris Slingshot with a valid drivers license starting August 1, 2016. Many other states are following suit and drafting their own autocycle legislation.

We want to show the Wisconsin Legislature that the people of Wisconsin WANT this change.  Sign your name to help make this legislative change possible in Wisconsin!
