I ran a plated XR650R for several years before selling it. I picked up another about 2 yrs ago before selling it this spring. It was still plated and the owner and I did not exchange money until I had it re-insured in my name with a fresh plate on it. I see several types of enduros still around each summer. It seems as long as the riders stay under the radar they do not get inspection orders. But it is a roll of the dice. If it ever has to go back in for an inspection, things could get dicey.
