Street plate from any state. Atv plate from only a few select states. Can't recall the list, but it's only like 4 states and I think PA is one of them

Edit: they don't actually check paperwork, or really know what they are looking at, so just slap any of your street bike plates on the dirtbike.

In. Tuesday’s and Thursday’s are booked for me so I’m feeling Dirty Monday’s.

I keep going back and forth with a hitch mount or a ramp/bed extended combo. Any opinions? Bike will end up with me all day at work. Bouncing around on construction sites. Sitting in cities where I need to parallel park. So I’m leaning towards bed for security alone.

I did the open practice the past two Saturdays at Southwick MX. First one was too crowded, second one was MINT. Another is this coming Saturday, and that’s the last one for a while. 35 bucks and ride till you can’t. Y’all should sign up! It’s a real treat to ride that track, and its been MUCH more expensive and difficult to get track time there for the past few decades than it is right now. Kyle, that bike will go fine out there without the charging system working!

I can't do Monday's, I coach at 630. And if I were you I'd go full width folding ramp and bed. Simplifies parallel parking and more secure-ish. Does your ladder rack go high enough to get the bike in under it?

Ladder rack fits into the pockets and comes out so that’s not an issue.

Full width ramp? That’s a pita to store. I already have 2-12” ramps. My worry is them walking away from the bed of the truck through out my day. A bed extended at least appears more secure in the truck.

I plan to ride trails a lot more this year, I hope. My bike is a 2016 Beta Xtrainer 300, sadly I’ve had it for 2 years now and have just 150 miles on it.
I could host some small rides at my farm once I clear the trails from the recent storm damage. I have about 7 miles of trails so far, half are typical New England rocks, roots and stumps. With a few weekends of work, could easily double or even triple the trail miles here.

I just bought one for MTB. Super convenient not having to undo the bag and reach in for a bottle of water. I bought a 3L which is a little big. I might grab a 1.5L one to try out if I like the smaller one better.

Plus it'll be helpful to carry a few basic tools and a spare tube.
