    Sweet, looks good.
    One word of advice from Ed to Ed. That plate aint gonna fly turn it up I got the first ticket in the state for that very same thing. DMV now offers sideways numbers if you want to mount it that way at only 15$ extra:lol3

    I have one and its an awesome machine. It does make it up in traction!!!!:D It is a mountain climbing goat that will go up anything. Too bad it can't be had in a dual sport. I like it better than my KLX250 for low end grunt.
    Yer lucky you live in a state where you can plate it.
