If somebody could help me out on getting my crf450x tagged in Williamson county it would be greatly appreciated. I have a letter from the dealer on official paper saying that my bike passes inspection to be DOT and road legal and the original registration/mso. The lady acted like I drove a UFO and told me it either had to be a "low speed" or a "medium speed" motorcycle that could only go 35mph or some shit. Pretty frustrated right now if anybody can offer some advice. Thanks

perhaps you volunteered too much information at the Tag & Title office.....


never heard of classifying the bikes by speed, only displacement.

Throw the dealer letter away. Does the title or MSO say "For offroad use only"? If it doesn't, waltz your ass into another office and tell them you need to register a motorcycle. Hand them the paper and a wad of money, and let them give you a plate.

If the MSO or title says "For offroad use only", then you are SOL.

Hey TNasty - I think that's from some new kind of tags that they give to golf carts and street legal side-by-sides. A buddy was telling me about that last weekend. THey have a low speed (25mph) and high speed (35mph)

Yea MSOs are the kiss of death for trying to get a dirtbike tagged. Throw that thing away. Heck I'm not sure what those things are good for ? ? ?

Anyone have any GPS tracks for middle TN they'd be willing to share? I'm new to the area and would like to get my DRZ out into some dirt.

Thanks

Two wheels, I had the same thing on my bike. I took mso down to the lady and asked just to get a title for the bike. I waited a couple weeks and it came in the mail with no OFFROAD ONLY stamp. I repeat it can't have the stamp on it. Then just take it down to office and say as little as possible or act stupid (like Bajadug) I just asked where are my plates? I got the title but I didn't get the plates. She should charge you for the plates and hand it to you. The bad is you kinda only get one shot at this or you can try different office's.


And by the way IHF sux'x

What he said. MSO with "off road only" is a non starter. If you have a title then walk in like you own the place. This is one of the reasons KTMs are so popular around here, as their MSOs do not say "off road only" on them. Title conversion on them is easy, even after they have been purchased from the dealer. Japanese bikes can be titled by the dealer at time of purchase (not necessarily plated). Then you are good to go later on.
The other option is "title washing". If you have friends or family in a "loose" state (like AZ) you can go through the trouble of getting the MSO converted/titled/plated in one of those states, and then bringing said title to TN and getting a plate.

Thing is bike is still financed a little bit so I don't have the title. It doesn't say anything on the registration about off-road use only. Could I still get a copy of the title from honda? Shouldn't they have that on file?

Is this thread broke? Looks like it from the UCP. Hopefully this post will unbreak it.
