    Default Noob from Durban

    Hey everyone,

    I've not got a bike yet but I'm currently actively looking. This forum seems like a great community and a wealth of knowledge.

    I'm hoping to pick up a DRZ400 or WR450 in the near future with the intent of doing some trips with my buddies around Drakensberg and Lesotho.

    Quick question... if I pickup a WR450 with a logbook but no license, can I just get a street legal kit, do roadworthy and get a license for it?

    Thanks!

    Welcome

    I have no idea but I'm told that it is possible to street a bike but it is a huge run around.

    Welcome.

    I'm no expert, but from what I understand it's not really worth the hassle to try and legalise an unroadworthy bike. Rather buy a 600CC class V-strom or Versys I'd say.
    Ride so you can ride again tomorrow.

    Thanks for the info guys. I will look for something already licensed as it will just be easier.
