Oregon new license laws for motorcycles?

Recommended Posts

I have a friend from washington that said new laws are being in effect january 2012. he said you can license any dirtbike that a dealership approves. the dealership writes a waiver and you take the waiver to the dol and get your plate.

i looked briefly for oregon changes and couldnt find anything. does anyone have more info or is this just for washington.

It's not quite that easy.

The new law will require the bike have all the requirements for street before the dealer can sign off. Meaning a true conversion will have to take place. No more plate on a bike that really is not street legal.

Yes, the law has passed in Washington and takes effect in Jan. 2012.

We would of never gotten this if the state wasnt beyond broke, no money, swimming in red ink. If you actually want something in return, you have to starve the beast. Finally, I will have to pay a little extra but actually get something in return. I was growing tired of just paying lots more for the same thing or lots more for less of the same thing. In fact, I had started rebelling by cutting out many items I used to just do every year.

      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.
