    Not certain. Some states are checking the model and will not do it. Somehow I doubt that LA would do that. Call DMV and ask. FWIW do some research and make sure your bike has the electrical system to operate 12 volt DC lights.

    Lefty......Are you starting a "napping bike" contest? I could run with you on that. I wish I could ride as well as my dog thinks I can.
    #1 Black Bear in CO. Broken clutch lever. Made for a fun day down and thru Telluride.
    #2 Corkscrew in CO. Very nicely bruised calf but most importantly no bike damage.
    #3 Friends yard. Dumb Azz missed line by me. Broken Brittanica windshield. Screw it. I'll ride her naked.

    I've gone through a few dual sport bikes over the years, but here's a photo of my current trusty steed.

    Me and another buddy just came back from the Arkansas 500 out of Eureka Springs a few weeks back.

    Here's my current trusty steed, a '12 KTM 690 in a badly overexposed photo:

    1) MSR Dragonfly Fuel Bottles work awesome as emergency fuel reserve (my bike does not have gas gauge). They have three different sizes, I believe they are lifetime warranty also.

    2) Hitch mounted MX carriers work awesome, just buy the hitch anti sway device. My wife will not pull a trailer so this was a nice option. They have a bunch on the market now.

    3) Your bike looks lighter than mine and mine is really vulnerable to cross winds or big vehicles on highway, hold on to those handle bars!!!!

    4) If you plan on riding 60 + mph for long periods you could look into a small windshield, they help a lot.

    Nice bikes guys, I was really surprised Louisiana does not have more dual sports on the road.

    Thanks for the tips. I just got a Wolfman tank bag and tail bag. Do any of you guys ride around Central Louisiana?

    No, i road my bike to your neck of the woods once to buy a truck. Loaded the bike in the back and drove the truck home. Get out and ride, you'll see the "Enduro" riders. You have a nice off road park near there don't you?

    My bike got tired and decided to nap in Big Bend National Park on both Old Ore Road on the rocks and the sand on River Road.
    The only damage was a cracked faring and bent crash bar. I did a ride around Junction Texas and went done coming out of a creek crossing. We had five of eight riders go down that day. Three on water crossings and two on rocks and gravel. Here are a few more pics:


    Water crossing claimed a KTM. We were trying to get it restarted:
