This last item is a stickler for anything not specifically registered with CARB for hiway use (street plated) here in CA.
AAA (in OC) did a VIN inspection/transfer on an old street bike I shipped in last year from the midwest. It is/was street legal. They do it all day long.
Not sure why they wouldn't do the same with a plated 450X unless the VIN flagged it as OHV-only.
edit: By the way, I read in this month's Westways magazine, that AAA is now able to issue green/red stickers as well.
