    Thanks. I was asking about plating a bike previously converted and plated in another state. I have done several 2 and 4 strokes over the years. Just not one with a plate from another state

    Any dual sport riders who ride hard on canyon roads? Interested in learning best lines around the local asphalt twisties.

    Many thanks. Grew up on dirt bikes and cannot function without a visor.

    I paid less for me DR650 than the list price of a Schuberth helmet!

    Scorpion is the poor boy option. I’ve had more than my share of high dollar Arais and Shois. My head may not be worth what it once was. But Scorpion makes a really nice helmet IMO

    If we are going off of what our heads are worth, I will just start wearing a
    KFC bucket!

    Not much action on this thread these days...

    PSA: Arai, Alpinestars, and Shoei helmets are heavily discounted at CMS right now. They mostly have dirt models, but the Hornet & Arai's DS version are in stock.

    maybe! It might be hard for me to sneak away from work for long enough to make that long of a trip worthwhile

    Don't push that! It's the pilot eject button.

    I'd invite you on a ride this weekend, but it's not big bike riding and I know you forgot how to ride your little bike.
