I originally planned to do it on my 450 but then I started reading about all the stupid CA vehicle requirements. My AZ bike is Street legal and insured but I don't have turn signals, DOT tires or emissions. I figured maybe it would be OK to just make a long weekend ride on my 990 ADV instead.
my o4 450 has no signals, never had dot tires, license plate tucked under the fender - not a single problem ever (last 4 years at least).
you would have more fun on small bike there.
