One suggestion I offer for your bike is to put clear vinyl over the newly painted frame tubes so your boots don't rub the paint off again.
I did this on one of my bikes to protect the new powder painted frame from boot-abuse.
It is the clear vinyl mask that is put on the front of cars to protect the paint from chips.
You could also use colored material of course.
Not so for Nevada. Dirt bikes can be plated with the addition of lights, signals, horn. OHV bikes also need a sticker now. It's a new revenue stream for the state. I have to get the sticker, so I can get a title. The PO, of course, didn't have the title. Once I get the title, I can get it plated. All in all, it's an extra $20 to the state. At least I think that's how it's going to work. A couple other guys I know have done it. So, I'm not anticipating any problems.

Nothing's too cruel if it's funny enough.
