Out of curiosity, How do Americans (or non dutch speakers in general) pronounce your last name?

And while I don't condone this () It's pretty easy to do a nice photoshop job these days. While the title says California, you might notice the New Hampshire seal on the bottom and if you look closely you'll see the words VOID all over it. It worked flawlessly throughout Latin America . It has everything officials looks for: Fancy border, odd colors, ugly dot-matrix font, a seal and a control number.

I was at some border in Central America, can't remember which, and they had a binder with a sample title from what looked to be all the American states, each in its' own plastic slip case. I have never traveled on forged documents, but it did put me off of doing it in the future.

My bike has a custom plate (STRSOUT) and on the Xerox Copy of my title it has the orginal letters+numbers California plate. Then I took it (yes, withe the Xerox copy) to all countries Ushuaia-Argentina from CA-USA.
The only place I need to show the original tittle was to board the bike in a Plane in Panama City to Bogota.

They never bother on the Xerox, much less on the plane discrepancy.

Actually, I made this for my friend Torben. And I have no idea how to pronounce his last name. I don't think I've ever tried

I'd guess "Pipers."

They had this book at El Amatillo, Honduras. The aduana lady wanted to see my title. I showed her my copy (no watermark) she pulled out the sample in the book, held my title up to the light and said, "no good, its a copy. I need to see you original title." So then I had to go back to the bike and fish out my original title to show her, then she was happy.

This was the only CA border crossing where they wanted to see my title. Many people have said that you dont need a title for CA. I dont know if that's actually true or not. This is simply a data point, my personal experience.
