Went in today to renew the registration for the plate on my WR400F at the Escondido DMV and cannot believe the lack of knowledge the DMV staff has. First, I told the lady that I have a dual sported dirt bike and I needed to renew my plate, the green is still current. She asked me TWICE if I was sure that I had a license plate. This is after I handed her my title with my Motorcycle's license plate number on it!!! AAAAGGGHHH....Then I asked her if I was going to get a reneweal notice for my green sticker in June and she got confused AGAIN!!!! I was going to try and renew my green sticker early, but I figured I better drop it before she calls over a supervisor and tries to take away my green sticker....eventhough it was dual sported before the deadline. The lady did not even know what a green sticker was, or what a dual sport bike was. I couldn't believe it. Thank god I was able to get my new registration sticker for my plate without any hassle. :devil::thumbsup:

I didn't think you had to get a green sticker if you had a plate?

You don't have to, but if you have a green sticker you can run your bike stripped down (no lights, etc) in legal off-road areas. I have one bike set up with both a plate and green sticker.
