    Nice one. You even took a fair bit of bark off yourself. Nylons are quite abrasive in a crash which is another reason why I wear skins and Fox Titan pro knee guards.

                What is the benefit of registering it?

                  Sweet FA really. I only bought a regoed bike due to long term reasons. If you have full A class rego AND a road worthy bike (mirrors, legal tires, chain guards, indicators, horn, mudguard extender, etc), then you can legally ride anywhere that a registered car or fourby can go and the cops can't touch you. They can probably book you for speeding, doing wheelies, spinning your wheels, etc so you can be hoon lawed and lose your bike for 28 days and cost you 800 bucks to get it out. Also, if they see anything that looks dodgy, you'll probably cop a yellow and have to take it over the pits. You can ride your regoed dirt bike down to the shops but really, most of us don't buy a racing dirt bike to ride to the shops on it.
                  I personally think B class rego is probably the way to go for most of us. It means you can slightly modify your MX bike to use in enduro events that use public areas.
                  Until recently, I have always ridden MX bikes in the bush. They are light and aren't cluttered up with heaps of crap you don't need when carving the trails. MX suspension can be firm but depending on your weight and how fast you ride, it isn't much of an issue.
                  My new KTM125EXC wouldn't pass the pits ATM with its tiny LED indicators, removed chain guard, removed rear extender and no mirrors so I sort of think what was the point.

                    Wouldn't get over with the knobbies either. I should put my plate etc back on my 525.

                      I still have the road legal knobbies on the EXC at the moment. But yeah, it doesn't matter if you have one potential defect or 20 as it only takes one to get spotted by the copper to get you a ticket for the pits and lots of work putting all the road legal stuff back on for inspection.

                      Have a look at where we go dirt biking and see how many people have rego. Not many.

                      Having a plate on the back when doing illegal activities just makes it easier to track you down should you elect to do a runner.

                      I suppose the choice is either do the right thing totally in every way or do the wrong thing and most likely get away with it and enjoy yourself just as much with less hassle and expense.

                        also with full A class rego your insurance will be cheaper if you are going to insure the bike. For my bike paying the rego and insurance comes out pretty equal to having it unreg and paying for the special insurance.
