6 Reasons You Should You Make Your Dirt Bike Street Legal

It comes down to one word: convenience.

As lifelong riders, what we've come to find is people want to ride their dirt bikes on the street. Whether it's to have cheap transportation or to ride the trails, there are countless reasons. Of course some of them are countable, so we’ve put a little list together.


Here are six reasons why you should make your dirt bike street legal.


If you're like me, you're on a budget and can't afford a truck to drive your bike back and forth to the local trails. Now you don't have to. Simply pull the bike out of the garage, kick it, and be on your way. If you already have a truck or trailer, you might as well sell it at this point and buy yourself a brand new dirt bike. You can thank me later. 


You can ride with all of your supermoto/enduro buddies who have WRs and DRZs. Wait until you see the look on their face when you pull up on a street legal, fully equipped, motocross bike. They will have a hard time keeping up. You will most likely have the fastest bike in the group, so jealousy may ensue.


Never have to watch your back while riding on the streets. You can take your dirt bike on all public roads and highways, legally.  Feel free to get the groceries and have the most fun doing errands that you can possibly have. Next time the wife asks you to take a trip to the store, you will be excited to. For once.

Rush hour hits and you have to take a trip. Guess what? Take the dirt bike. Happily pass cars with the biggest grin on your face knowing that it used to be you stuck there for hours on end, but luckily you made the right choice by making your bike legal. Soon you will be taking the bike to work; no more waiting in line.


Your insurance will be cheap and monthly gas bills even cheaper. You will probably fill your tank with just $5 and get full coverage for a few hundred a year. Not a bad price to pay for a full day of fun. Not to mention, the resale value of your dirt bike significantly increases with a street legal title. 


You will find yourself making all sorts of excuses to get out of the house and go ride now that your dirt bike is street legal. Hungry? Just hop on the bike and go to your nearest drive through. Lonely? Go make some new friends just by riding around town on two wheels.
