    I know there is a closure because of fire restrictions now, but I didn't know about an access closure. I thought there was an access agreement published in July from the BLM. See the first two document in the following link: http://www.blm.gov/or/districts/spokane/newsroom/

    Plating a 07 ktm in WA

    In my previous post I highlighted the wrong section about tail lights and not brake lights. Sorry about that. "(4) Every motorcycle and motor-driven cycle shall be equipped with at least one stop lamp meeting the requirements of RCW 46.37.070."

    Sorry to tell you, but you need the brake light.

Any tail lamp or tail lamps, together with any separate lamp or lamps for illuminating the rear registration plate, shall be so wired as to be lighted whenever the head lamps or auxiliary driving lamps are lighted."

    warning to washington street riders

    I guess it depends on how you define "horizontal." Horizontal means left-to-right to me. The law states horizontal and clearly visible. I'm not buying the 90 degrees thing. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Horizontal Horizontal is an orientation relating to, or in parallel with the horizon, and the opposite of vertical. A horizontal line goes from left to right (or vice versa) where a vertical line goes from top to bottom.

    warning to washington street riders

    I don't see anywhere in the law where is says anything about 90 degrees. I may start carrying a copy of this just in case. http://apps.leg.wa.gov/RCW/default.aspx?cite=46.16.240 RCW 46.16.240 Attachment of plates to vehicles — Violations enumerated. The vehicle license number plates shall be attached conspicuously at the front and rear of each vehicle for which the same are issued and in such a manner that they can be plainly seen and read at all times. However, if only one license number plate is legally issued for any vehicle such plate shall be conspicuously attached to the rear of such vehicle. Each vehicle license number plate shall be placed or hung in a horizontal position at a distance of not more than four feet from the ground and shall be kept clean so as to be plainly seen and read at all times. In cases where the body construction of the vehicle is such that compliance with this section is impossible, permission to deviate therefrom may be granted by the state patrol. It shall be unlawful to display upon the front or rear of any vehicle, vehicle license number plate or plates other than those furnished by the director for such vehicle or to display upon any vehicle any vehicle license number plate or plates which have been in any manner changed, altered, disfigured or have become illegible. License plate frames may be used on vehicle license number plates only if the frames do not obscure license tabs or identifying letters or numbers on the plates and the plates can be plainly seen and read at all times. It is unlawful to use any holders, frames, or any materials that in any manner change, alter, or make the vehicle license number plates illegible. It shall be unlawful for any person to operate any vehicle unless there shall be displayed thereon valid vehicle license number plates attached as herein provided.

    Miles per tank on stock 450 EXC?

    I have a 2006 450 EXC. On a ride of mostly single track I went on reserve right at 50 miles with the stock 2.1 gallon tank. I do have the JD kit installed, but I don't have the specifics of what jet, and needle position right now. Jeff

    New KTM 450 EXC Owner Here..

    I bought the dirt-bike-gear.com rear fender bag based on reviews I read on Ktm Talk.com and have not been disappointed with the quality of this product. In my opinion it's a great buy. I also bought the tool wrap and love that too. http://dirt-bike-gear.com/tool_wrap.html Jeff

    Is there room for one more? I would love join in on the "surprise." What time were you thinking of meeting? The usual 9 - 10 a.m. Jeff

    Any riding close to the Tri Cities?

    Here's the directions to Juniper: From Pasco, drive east 2 miles on Highway 12to Pasco/Kahlotus Highway. Turn left and drive 5.5 miles to Peterson Road. Turn left and drive 4.5 miles to a large sandy parking area. There is also the Richland ORV park, but I haven't been there. http://www.ci.richland.wa.us/RICHLAND/Parks/index.cfm?PageNum=52 Jeff

    Do plated dirtbikes need ORV tabs??

    Gotta have the ORV tag in Oregon even with the WA license plate. As others have said, the WA ORV tag is good in Oregon also. I always here people say "I heard", "someone told me" etc. that you have to have...bla. So I always look up the law. http://www.oregon.gov/OPRD/ATV/reciprocity.shtml "Dual sport motorcycles with license plates do not qualify under the reciprocity agreement." * Anyone riding in Oregon is required to have an off road permit/decal for off road areas. This is a state law. Reciprocity is granted to those individuals who have a valid off road permit/decal. This is the only permit which we accept in our reciprocity agreement with other states. Within Washington's laws, they offer reciprocity to other states under two directions, ORV permit or vehicle license. Only one is similar to our program and that is the ATV Permit/Decal. Dual sport motorcycles with license plates do not qualify under the reciprocity agreement.

    Do plated dirtbikes need ORV tabs??

    I recently posted this in another thread. I looked up the Washington State law; there is no requirement for an ORV tag if legally licensed. See section six below http://apps.leg.wa.gov/RCW/default.aspx?cite=46.09.050 Revise Code of Washington - RCW 46.09.050 Vehicles EXEMPTED from ORV use permits and tags. ORV use permits and ORV tags shall be required under the provisions of this chapter except for the following: (1) Off-road vehicles owned and operated by the United States, another state, or a political subdivision thereof. (2) Off-road vehicles owned and operated by this state, or by any municipality or political subdivision thereof. (3) Off-road vehicles operated on agricultural lands owned or leased by the ORV owner or operator. (4) Off-road vehicles owned by a resident of another state that have a valid ORV permit or vehicle license issued in accordance with the laws of the other state. This exemption shall apply only to the extent that a similar exemption or privilege is granted under the laws of that state. (5) Off-road vehicles while being used for search and rescue purposes under the authority or direction of an appropriate search and rescue or law enforcement agency. (6) Vehicles which are licensed pursuant to chapter 46.16 RCW or in the case of nonresidents, vehicles which are validly licensed for operation over public highways in the jurisdiction of the owner's residence.

    How do you get to Juniper ?

    From Pasco, drive east 2 miles on Highway 12 to Pasco/Kahlotus Highway. Turn left and drive 5.5 miles to Peterson Road (look for the big yellow mail box on the right.) Turn left and drive 3 to 4 miles to a large sandy parking area on the right. Have fun.

    From what I just read it seems you don't need the ORV tag if you have a valid license plate.

(3) Off-road vehicles operated on agricultural lands owned or leased by the ORV owner or operator. (4) Off-road vehicles owned by a resident of another state that have a valid ORV permit or vehicle license issued in accordance with the laws of the other state. This exemption shall apply only to the extent that a similar exemption or privilege is granted under the laws of that state. (5) Off-road vehicles while being used for search and rescue purposes under the authority or direction of an appropriate search and rescue or law enforcement agency. (6) Vehicles which are licensed pursuant to chapter 46.16 RCW or in the case of nonresidents, vehicles which are validly licensed for operation over public highways in the jurisdiction of the owner's residence.
