So before I actually bought my '14 wr450, I was a bit over confident from the many forums, videos, and listings I've seen on craigslist that clearly proved it was possible to register and plate this bike.
I now regret my half-ass assumption because when I finally obtained all the necessary paperwork, insurance, and the hardware to make it legal (hi/low beam, mirror, horn, etc..) and not to mention having
to wait FOREVER in line at the tax office, I was only to be turned down by the lady behind the counter. She simply asked for the VIN, typed in in the computer, and a message popped up saying for "offraod use only" or some bullshit.
She was a little unsure and tried again hoping it might miraculously work this time... After receiving the same message, she went to the back to try to find another employee who could assist. A man then walked up, looked at the message and basically said it couldn't be registered, even though I kept trying to convince them otherwise. I soon gave up as I realized they weren't going to help me out.
So naturally, I walked away feeling like absolute shit. I don't know if the laws recently changed or what, but I wasn't sure what the &%$#@! I was going to do then. I thought about going to another tax office, but still haven't yet.
Also i forgot to mention I'm in Texas.
Anyways, if anyone has some advice on this I would be more than grateful.
