I have some friends who live in Eugene who did even less and got their bikes plated. Mostly it is a grey area, and if you find an employee who doesn't want to do a ton of research, they are just going to hand you a plate if you have insurance and proof of ownership.

Don't be real surprised if you get a letter from DMV in Salem telling you that you will need to send your plate back because there was a mistake. It has happened to two differant people down here in So. Ore. One gent had a WR250 and the other a WR450. The problem is with the federal safety standards, or lack there of. Oregon has recently jumped on the "No dualsport conversions" bandwagon. I'm hoping that when my plate is due for renewal on my 2003 WR 450, that I am "grandfathered in" and can keep my plate.

What is odd is that I called the Salem main DMV and spoke with 2 people who said it was not a problem as long as I could prove that my bike had all the necessary DOT equipment.
I heard that November is the cut-off before they start cracking down.
Either way, whatever happens does....
Pat's Acres is still close enough for me to go have a good time on the track.
