PMing you...
This is a good setup or a Kenda Trakmaster if you want a knobby on the back.

Agreed the Michelin t63 does a pretty good job as a 50/50 tire. It wears well on pavement.

I already have a plate on my Berg and yesterday got a plate for my trials bike. I made sure that I had the Idaho plate with me when I went in and I was given a WA edition with no questions.

So here's a question. Last fall I got pinged by one of the enforcement agencies in the middle of nowhere for not having my bike registered. Since I had never even titled it after two years of bringing it in, I was able to be a dirtbag and say I had just bought it the previous weekend from ID and still had 15 days to transfer the title. As the bike had never been registered in WA, he wasn't able contradict my story since it wasn't in the WA system and let me go with a promise to get it done. It was a little while but I did do it.

Anyway, we were talking and he said he could make a higher ticket out of someone riding down a USFS road on a street-plated bike with deficient equipment than someone riding an ORV-tagged bike. I've always thought that the opposite was true - it's better to be on a plated bike no matter the equipment and deal with fix-it tickets rather than a moving violation. I stuck with that when I had my trials bike plated, but I wonder what is true here? I know any cop can get a bug up his butt and go crazy, but what would be the rational LEO's route on the two situations when judged equally?

Watching this thread with interest. Anyone know of an Eastern WA dealership that is doing the inspection?

(And by eastern WA I mean Spokane, not Issaquah)

Interesting. I'd heard that on a public road, they can impound your bike if it doesn't have a plate, but you'd just get fix-it tickets for deficient equipment. I assumed the same would apply to FS roads, where you're still required to have a plate, right? I'd like to know what's true here too.

Do you have any street equipment, lights, horn, etc. on your trials bike?

It's got a headlight and tail light. No horn. No mirror but I've got one of those old Dual Star bar mirrors around here somewhere. The switchgear is turn signal/horn capable as trials bikes are street-legal in Europe and are often ridden between courses over the duration of a trial. It has a factory speedo too.

After much debating on buying DS tires for the first time, I went with the MT21 front and T63 rear. After about 500 miles on the combo and I'm happy with the performance. Got me through the snow and up to Split Rock alright. In fact, a gate was open at Walker Valley last weekend and I went fire roading in the snow again. With a soft (wet but not hard-packed) snow darn near 6-7" deep and the bike just kept on going. Thought I had a snomobike.

I was able to get my 1989 XR250R plated without the use of this new law. If your bike meets several criteria, you can get it plated without a costly inspection or pesky law enforcement officials breathing down your neck.

1. Check your VIN, if the 8th digit is a Zero you have passed the first hurdle
2. Check the steering neck of your bike, if there is no stamp stating "For off road use only" you have passed the second hurdle
3. Check your title and look for the same nomenclature there, if it isn't existent. You are golden!
Just pop into your local DOL and say you would like to get a dual registration for your bike, and the nice people behind the counter should be more than happy to help you out. They might have to call Olympia, but if you are pleasant and persistent, things should go no problem.

I would include a photo, but since I am new to this forum, I don't know how. Good Luck!

So has anyone successfully used this new law? I just bought a CRF450X and am in the process of fitting mirrors, indicators, lights and a brake light (plus speedo) and will try to get it registered.. Need to find a shop that will do the inspection in the Seattle (well Maple valley, south east of Seattle) area..

Thought I would also try the Dual Registration mentioned above!! Hopefully one of these approaches will work.

My Yamaha WR is very similar to your Honda. I installed a Tusk dual sport kit with harness from Rocky MOuntain ATV, It was under $200 including a second mirror (not included in the kit). I fabricated a rear mud flap, and bought some yellow reflectors for the forks at AutoZOne, and red reflectors for the rear. Then booked an apointment at Lynwood Moto Plex. $58 for the inspection, then took that plus my title to a DOL agent. New plate cost was $80.
I did opt to replace my rear fender with a MX style fender so I could mount the rear light and plate honder under the fender, but I think you could make the stock fender work. Let me know if you have any question.
