Enjoy 

Can't get a straight reply in new sSouth Wales one response is yes I can ride. The police are deciding on the spot if it's OK to ride 

Will see what happens tomorrow  night give it a try

How does your rego work over there in SA, you simply transfer it from bike to bike? Can't do that here in Vic but the Rec Rego scheme is cheap but basically limited to the bush.
Do you need to get Roadworthy's?
People are getting fined here for any travel that is non essential, ie not for food essentials work etc. But you can also exercise so thats another grey area if dirt bike riding is exercise? Off road it certainly is.

 I have two 900cc Triumph road bikes & two Yamaha 250cc dual sport bikes, they don't allow us to swap plates etc. pity because I can only ride one at a time. I have all four bikes on seasonal rego. this means it the bike does not have rego for greater than 3 months & under 12 months I don't have to pay the late fee...rego is cheaper than it used to be....under $90au for 3 months including 3rd party insurance.

No roadworthy here, in SA ATM we can ride with up to 10 riders providing we behave with SD, but I'm happy just to go for a ride on my own, I live 7kms from the dirt & I'm right on the outer metro area...2 minutes & I'm on county roads.

170kms this morning & not a single traffic light, only stopped to take photos

Last photos, today the bike had new brake pads front & rear plus new tyres front & year & to say it felt odd would be an understatement.  Never used these tyres before & don't know if I like them or not, time will tell I guess.

Can't transfer rego Here . Each bike had its own rego no rec rego in nsw. And each bike has to have an annual inspection 

I'd have more bikes if I could do that

 I would be happy to pay one rego at an extra cost if it was possible or even if I could use the same plate on both Yamaha's or both Triumphs, I have rego on 3 of 4 ATM

Always been confused by the "rego" in different states, and what it actually means.

Here in UK each vehicle has a registration number (plate) associated to it's VIN/frame id number. To ride on the road it must have a road worthiness test - MOT or Ministry of transport test - about £35 - 40 a year, must be insured (depends on bike, rider's age and experience, where it's stored...) and must be taxed (used to be called road fund duty, but now I think the money just goes into a big pot for the gov to splurge anywhere it likes!) Cost of this depends on age and engine size, about £45 ish/year for a 90's TTR iirc.
We can pay or cancel the road fund duty in monthly chunks by Statutory Off Road Notification (SORN) but it's a bit of a pain in the ass.

I think by far the most expensive part of keeping a bike on the road here is insurance, but we have more than our fair share of thieving scum here, (and plenty of b***ards willing to buy stolen property), and multi-bike policies can keep the cost per bike more reasonable - more bikes = cheaper to keep than just one!!! ("Honestly darling, if I buy one more it will actually save us money"!)

 We have rego, then we have 3rd party insurance that covers injury, if you want to insure the bike for damage or being stolen that is seperate to the rego
