I'd want to see a title lacking "off-road use only" before I got my hopes up.
NYS doesn't like to register stuff like this.

If I'm not mistaken, those bikes were sold originally as street legal DS bikes.

I concur. Was looking intently at them when I was shopping in the early 2000's.

You are mistaken.

The KLX400's were street legal. The 450's, nyet!

Ask Devo about that.

Although in his defense, I think that was his first off road type excursion. I'm sure he could handle it now.

Yeah, we know, but it's still fun to joke about.

Always surprised when I see a Scrambler with mufflers still on it since most cut them off and installed Snuff-or-Nots.

If you're too young to remember them: http://blog.cycleworld.com/2011/03/t...en-l-thompson/

I had a 305 Superhawk, and put high scrambler pipes on it and thought I was cool. Also had Snuff-or-Nots on them.

stolen bike alert..

stolen bike (in Providence, RI). Keep your eyes open for this bike, it's pretty unique so should be easy to recognize.. Not my bike.. belongs to ADVer lilolita.

I'm reposting this from the RI/CT Big Bike Drop-o-Rama thread..

Quote:




These are the last pictures I have of this bike because some little mofo broke into our garage and stole both Elsa and Franz (my little blue scooter).

The scooter was dumped in a neighbor's parking area one street over, ignition all f'up'd and possibly some damage to the handlebars. The neighbor had his driver's side window and windshield smashed. He heard the commotion and yelled at them through the window around 2:30am. They threw rocks at him.

My other neighbor had two tenants' car windows smashed. So far, in all this chaos, all I know that they got was exactly one iPod (neighbor) and my bike.
the bike is a DRZ400sm, seat is a custom pink and black renazco seat, aftermarket dash/windscreen, etc.
