Bike tags were dead

Ended up paying all the vehicle taxes, and the property taxes for the rest of the year.

$600+ later I didn't have gas money

I have a street title for my KTM 2 smoke.

Watch out street riding. I was skating the wife's Jeep a few times on Rt 50 this morning.
So much salt/cinders/gravel on the roads in places it would be easy to end up on your head.

I bought it in VA and the title did not specify "off road use only". It had been titled in MD before that.

I just took the signed title and bill of sale to the DMV and asked for a tag. No problem at all.

Understand that while it is tagged, it is far from street legal. I have no brake lights or signal lights.
The tag is just to semi-legally connect trails.

Sweet trail

That looks like a great trail there, do you mind telling us where that's at? I went for a ride today but didn't bring a camera....and it was 2/3rds pavement....so, maybe not even worth snapping a pic.

The ride today was on hunt club land on the west side of Oak Hill. I joined the hunt club about 5 years ago just to have a place close by to ride.

More land is being closed to riding every year but there are still several sections of open land around here where a good days ride can be had.

Sounds good to me Chris, I'm pretty flexible.

Have you been riding with Uncle Bob lately?

please keep me in the loop...I think the 400 is ready to go, well as ready as a KTM can be, it will probably spring a new leak today

Im fairly flexible except when I work in VA, which is kind of sporadic at this point.
