The new law, I believe you're only limited by whether you can make lights light up one way or another.

I can vouch for the mechanic that did the wrenching on that bike. Mitch does solid work.

Can you plate a 2stroke?

Absolutely nothing in the new law that would prevent a 2 stroke from getting a plate. You just need to make the lights and horn work and have the necessary safety equipment (tires, brakes, mirrors, etc).

Summary: A person may operate an off-road motorcycle upon a public road, street, or highway in Washington, if the person complies with the following requirements:

file a motorcycle use declaration, in which the Department of Licensing (DOL) certifies conformance with all applicable federal motor vehicle safety standards and state standards;

obtain and have in full force and effect a current and proper off-road vehicle (ORV) registration or temporary ORV use permit;

obtain a valid driver's license and motorcycle endorsement issued to Washington residents; and

install various outlined motorcycle components, if not already present on the off-road motorcycle.

An off-road motorcycle is defined. In order to be registered for on-road use, an off-road motorcycle must travel on two wheels with a seat designed to be straddled by the operator and have handlebar-type steering control.

DOL must establish a declaration, which must be submitted by an off-road motorcycle owner when applying for on-road registration of an off-road motorcycle. The declaration must include the following:

documentation of a safety inspection conducted by a licensed dealership or repair shop;

documentation that the licensed dealership or repair shop did not charge more than $100 for the inspection, all of which goes to the dealership or repair shop;

verification of the vehicle identification number; and a release signed by the owner that releases the state from liability.

Well thanks guys now I'm thinking of getting a third bike. I've never owned, or rode a two stroke. And I'm sure that's one hell of a two stroke. Reviews online say it is "a fore cracker waiting to be lit" , and "violent". Even Dirt Rider mag says its a real man's bike. And they stopped making them in 2004 because there just wasn't enough real men in the world to buy them.

But I believe I will have to pass on the time in the hospital. I do think it would be super sweet and unique to drive around on the streets. Thanks for the info on plating a bike though. Now I got gears turning.

I wouldnt buy this bike as a first 2 stroke. You really need to ride an open two stroke first. They are definately a love hate thing.

      Hi, all. DRZ-400S rider from Kodiak, AK here. I'll have a week to burn next week and just purchased ferry tickets to/from Homer so I can do a solo trip on the mainland. I know it's a little late in the season, but does anyone have any suggestions for places I can go? 
      Some places I've looked at:  East End Road (Homer), Crown Point Mine Trail (Kenai Peninsula), Hatcher Pass, McCarthy/Kennicott Mine, Chicken, Denali Hwy, etc.
      I know it's a little late in the season, so some of these areas may not work (McCarthy/Kennicott comes to mind).  It will be my first time riding a motorcycle on mainland Alaska since 1999-2000.  Any suggestions/advice are greatly appreciated!

      Anyone know of any good shops that offer vapor blasting or water blasting or vapor honing. It's all the same thing just different names.
      Looking to have some aluminum street bike frames done so need a place that can handle larger pieces. 
      Some where close to Seattle east side Tacoma that you might recommend. 
      I found the motoshed in queen Anne but they can't do larger items.
