My brother insured his old IT 425 with just a head light and tail light, "I think" he had to do a small modification so he had a brake light, as for signals he used his arms.

Is your bike registered?

Unfortunately you are about 2 years to late, that loop hole has been closed by the beareaucrats. The only way now is to buy one that was licensed before the law changed.

And even then if the bike is ever ordered to be inspected, most likely to be: Adios Plate!

Start shopping for a KTM, Husaberg or Husquvarna

Beta makes a great bike. It's a dual sport that is great in the dirt. Nice on the road too with the 6 spd tranny. I rode a DRZ 400 for a few years, but the Beta is ten times the bike the DRZ was.
