Riding a plated dirtbike on public roads feels like you are breaking all sorts of laws. It's a good thing, just don't go crazy.

WMSC - Too funny. That is exactly how it feels. I think I need to balance my tires though. 55 is pretty jumpy.

On my plated 400exc I run just enough wheel weights on the front wheel to offset the rim lock, obviously placed opposite of it. Helped tremendously at the over 55mph speeds. Some people will run two rim locks to help with this, but it makes changing tires and tubes a PIA.

Yes, you need to balance the wheels. Balancing the rear wheel is just as important as balancing the front wheel.
