You mean in your case, not this case (OP's), right? Cuz based on his question re ok or not to ride club trials in public, the answer is that without a sticker, no, you certainly can't do that here.

Good info above. I weigh about the same as OP, 160 #s.

I too looked for a ktm after selling my autoclutch KDX (just too dated at this point). All desert ridden 200s were tired and woods riders...
