Thumb Grandfathered Plates ??

Hi, I want to introduce myself after 20 years of chasing fish and game I got the off-road bug again and liking different things than most brought home a couple Yamaha Bigwheels, not fast-but fun.
One was plated in 1985 by an employee of the dealership and has had current tabs since. It's in great shape and although it does not have DOT rated tires currently (they now have them in correct sizes).
It just has mirrors and a brake light.
Am I in danger of losing the plate to a hot headed patrolman?
would the '28 yr grandfather' count as the bike has not been changed.?
I would not take it on the highway but to use trailhead to trailhead and on side roads its perfect cheap fun.I also have led blinkers/relay/horn/switches to add now for legality..

Thankyou to tod701 for fighting the good fight regarding these laws.

Although I now have the urge for a more capable bike after going and watching the 'Urban Asault ' riders..
