Heck, I called DMV in Sacramento and they said that you can't dual-sport any longer. That's a total lie.
WRONG ! It is the truth.
FACT... it is now... and has been for 10 years ILLEGAL to put a street plate on any motorcycle that doesn't have an EPA or CARB "ON HIGHWAY" emissions sticker. PERIOD END of STORY !
The fact that people slip them through the system doesn't change the law. The fact that people charge money to get them through the DMV doesn't change the law. Getting a plate is possible. But it is only possible because some DMV clerks are clueless... or corrupt... or just don't care.
Chase your plate and best of luck to you... I hope everyone gets one. But there is NO question about the legality.
