Making off-road bikes street legal

NCtimes.com features a story on how making off-road motorcycles street legal became a business for one rider.

Alan Roach, an off-road bike enthusiast, developed a kit that adds lights and turn signals to off-road bikes. Not all states welcome "dual-sport" bikes as street bikes. California has strict laws limiting off-road bikes.

Roach made the first conversion kit for his own bike, eventually turning his garage business into a company called Baja Designs.
