    So I hate to bring something back up if it has been talked about at length already but I was wondering. Has anyone played a DRZ400E in KC recently? I have a line on one but need to get a plate on it. If it is impossible would it work if I got it titled “legal for street use” in another state and then brought it here? Just kicking this out there. Not going to buy it if I can’t get a plate for it.

    In JoCo, I have heard that sometimes the Mission location will plate it. But Olathe most likely won't. I talked with a guy a couple months ago that got his plated earlier in 2018 and went to the Mission location. That could have changed as recently I was looking on the KS DMV website and I think somewhere I read that the title inspections are no longer done at the Olathe Highway Patrol station but at the license places.

    Then there's the South Dakota route . . .

    What is the South Dakota route? Also, I would have to have an inspection as this bike has an out of state “off road only” title.

    Just google words that have to do with tagging a bike in s dakota. It's been talked about at length on the web. I'm worried someday they will stop it since it's been talked about so much.

    Buying a bike w/o a plate is a gamble. "Do you feel lucky punk? Well do ya?" ;-)

    Yokomo - Seeing how you are in Manhattan: I found that when I took my daughter to K-State, there were quite a few plated dirt bikes around town, mostly at the dorms. Those all farm boys getting plates? Wonder how they're doing it? Didn't see any JO tags.

    I brought in an Illinois plated XR250R and had no trouble tagging it here. But then it looked the part of a factory dual sport, and nothing on the bike or it's paper work said off-road only.

    Awesome. Thank you all for the info. Now I have more research to do.

    I will keep everyone posted when I decide what to do/if I have success.

    OHjim I see a few around from time to time, but most I've seen are factory legal. XR, KLX, DR, etc. Last couple years I've seen more of those Groms running around. They scream "steal me" IMO.

    Before you spend money on a GPS device, try using CoPilot (now owned by Trimble). There is a FREE version. You do not need an Internet connection, the maps are downloaded to your device. (make sure you have enough storage space)

    I have used CoPilot for many years on my 7 inch Samsung tablet. I can easily toggle over to Google or Bing maps. It may not have some of the features of a Garmin or Tom Tom device, but I have never been charged for updated maps or software.

    Vintage Motorcycle show in Lawrence, Kansas this Sunday (before the Super Bowl). At the Douglas County Fairgrounds. Suggest getting there before noon as it gets crowded inside.
    All sorts of vintage bikes including offroad bikes. Potential good weather on Sunday, may be able to ride there.

    FWIW. I tried to plate a motorcycle with an "off highway title" in my name. DMV wanted to collect 25 years worth of back property taxes on it. No thank you, old bike wasn't worth that much.
