D.O.L. is the Department of Licensing, they are the ones that issue the plates for the DMV (state). The lady that helped me with my WR also helped with my wifes xr. She really wanted to help me but without some help at the state capital I don't think would have been able to. The computer now needs a manual overide to dual register and can't be done without a code given from Olympia!

Knowing a cop wouldn't do any good. The manufacturer has to issue a MSO stating the bike is street legal. I can't imagine somebody sending thier bike to Japan to be inspected by the manufacturer just to get the paperwork requiered to be legal. I feel badly for everyone that wants to enjoy their bikes as much as I'm able too, and now can't.

I'm only here to help . I was really pleased with how nice the Baja kit looks, now I wish I would have waited the three month they quoted for the WR .

I agree! I want to make a WR street legal and i am finding out that it is impossible. If you started a petetion stating these rules are unjust i will gladly sign it!
I think your right. After talking to the Attorney General, and a somewhat influential person who has talked to our state rep, we Washingtonians are screwed as far as making a bike street legal in this state. It seems to boil down to the frame, or bike itself, not being designed for road use,"AND" the liability put on the state for letting these bikes be on the road. Now, you and I know that we would not take advantage of this, but there are a few people out there that see this as a way to hold someone else responsible for their own actions, like running into someone, then using the state as the scapegoat. I myself am trying to score a plate for my WR, and am seriously looking at doing something, well, shall we say, naughty. All I want to do is ride the dirt roads in the mountains, maybe a handfull of miles on the road. The state says sorry, but no way. I can build a bike from scratch, and make it street legal, but cannot legalize one built for ORV use only. Where is the justice there? I will keep trying and hope to make a sound in Olympia, that this is unjust. Other states let these bikes on the road, I guess WA. is just too "ANAL". Sorry of I seem pissed, but I have to get it out somewhere.
