Washington state doesn't make it easy , but it can be done. I just plated my WR last week. Most state patrol inspection stations won't pass "off road" bikes, but the Bremerton inspection will! They even gave me a copy of a memo they recieved on the state attourny generals letterhead stating, "as long as all requierments are met, we will pass all off road motorcycles". I shocked the salesman at the dealership where I bought the bike as I posted the memo on the bullitan board.
