I don't DS this bike, but this is what I have heard to look out for in ANY dirt bike that is street ridden.
I would imagine street miles are way easier on the bike-less load on the engine, less suspension action, more use of the clutch, etc.

I ride mine on the street all the time, no problems. You might want taller gearing, higher air pressure in the tires, softer settings on the suspension.
I wouldn't worry too much about the lack of rear cush-drive. I have been running without it on my CBR900RR for the last 7 years & my old XR650L for 6 years without a problem.

With the second MT21 I take care on the pavement and the tire is holding up really well. I open up the Rocket when the ground gets soft!

Why did I ride my YZ timed WR on the road for so long? It's been weeks since I rode it and I just couldn't stand it any more.
On the way home I went through a field near my house and did a couple of jumps. Being the bonehead I am, I almost took a digger with just my jeans and a t-shirt on (helmet too of course). Wouldn't THAT suck! Doing a yard sale with no protection and coming home one big scab.
