New to this site and XR650s...

Hey guys, new to this site...a little about myself:

I've been riding 4 wheelers for years and years, but just bought a 2001 XR650R (yesterday actually). I got it mostly because it was such a great deal. Rode it today for the first time and wow is it different than 4 wheelers, heh.

Anyway, me and my friend have been talking about getting KLR650s for a while now and so I figured Id give this a shot instead. Couple questions...

What exactly do I need on it to make it street legal? I know the whole "baja street legal kit" but is that all? I didnt think the kit came with a horn or mirrors, do I need those? Also, does anyone know where I can find a street legal kit for a good price?

How does the XR650R fair on the road? We actually plan on riding them onroad quite a bit, with a mix of fireroads/logging roads...was the XR650R a good choice? If its not going to be any good for that I wont bother making it street legal. Any input would be great, thanks guys!
