[Tagging] OHV greater than 50 inches (wide)

More likely than prohibiting bikes, the USFS could allow
non-street-registered OHVs over 50" on a trail, but keep it closed to
normal street-registered vehicles; in some states, there may also be
implications regarding the requirement to have the vehicle registered as an
OHV, regardless of whether or not it has a street plate.

I'm not sure that we need a separate access tag, though: is there any case
where the USFS (or another land manager) allows only those OHVs over 50"?
In most cases, I think either maxwidth= or atv:maxwidth= would be
appropriate, when the question is a max-width of 50", no?
