Would 07 WR450f make a good dual sport/race bike?

Well sort off, I've probably never ridden more than 10 miles of pavement at a time, but it is plated Not very legal if I ever went through an inspection though
I race it in HS's here in BC. It's a little beastly in the really tight side to side but anything faster it fairs pretty well. As an all round bike I think it's a pretty good choice.
This is of course with all the free mods, exhaust and resprung suspension

If I could plate it I would
Is it hard to plate a WR in WA state ? I would have thought it would be pretty mellow......
Here in BC you just ask for registration when you buy the bike, take the papers to the insurance office and you're done. As far as making it really road legal that's up to you and where you live

Its a blast. But I think there are other bikes that are more competitive for racing (at my level), so I picked up the yz250 recently.
If I could only have one bike, then it would not the the wr450. It would be the ktm300. But since I can have two, then my yz and my wr fill out my garage very nicely.
btw... I don't really do "dual sport" rides. I basically have a dirtbike with a plate just so that I can ride on the cool trails.
