Off Highway Motorcycle

Off-highway motorcycle riding in Wisconsin

When Gov. Scott Walker signed 2016 Wis Act 170 into law, the new Off-Highway Motorcycle (OHM) Program was created for Wisconsin. Under Wisconsin Statutes, the OHM Program begins on October 1, 2016.

Wisconsin Statutes define an OHM as any 2-wheeled motor vehicle that is straddled by the operator, that is equipped with handlebars, and that is designed for use off a highway, regardless of whether the motor vehicle is also designed for use on a highway.
