    Unless I am badly mistaken GA changed the law a couple of years ago. Bikes that were tagged prior and which have been tagged without a break since the change are still legal. I don't think you can get a legal tag for any motorcycle with an off-road use MSO under the new law.
    Bikes that I miss:1975 CB100, 1979 YZ100F, 1979 XR250, 1992 XR600, 1992 Sportster 883.

    probably not going to happen without something funny happening. if you have the original MSO, check to see if its' got "off road use only" stamped on it. that's usually the first clue when you go to the tag office.

    it's easy to tag a KTM as they have a full VIN and no stamps and other street legal bikes, but getting just about any of the japanese off road bikes tagged is difficult. unless you have someone in another state that you can sell the bike to and get it tagged then buy it back with a tag already in place, it's probably not going to happen.

    check out www.georgiaoffroad.com for info and good luck!

    Under the old law you could, because GA was one of the states that would let you title a bike with an off-road use MSO. Under the new law GA will not issue a title to a bike with an off-road use MSO at all.

    Could always look on ebay or craigslist for a titled frame or take it out of state where someone you know has an address and easier laws to convert it.
