I'm camping there. Plan on rolling in Thursday night. As a noob, I'd love get some tips.

I really wish I could get there a few days early. Would be nice to take Conger's training course but I am lucky to even get the time off that I did manage.

Are you in Vermont? Vermont seems to be the way to go. Local guys here are here (Hampton Roads, Virginia) are using the Vermont route to get plates on all kinds of stuff. One guy plated a 2 stroke KX

Yeah Seth is in Vermont. They are pretty lax there.

New Hampshire isn't bad either, usually depends on how agreeable your town clerk is when you bring in the C.O. and paperwork to register for a title. I have been lucky in that respect, done it with a couple dirt bikes now with no problem.

Tn. is much tougher. I tried two fire flies in a mason jar for a headlight. They said fine but where's your high beam? So I had to a add a jar with three flys.

Ok here's your plate.
