Non-CA registration (in your name) + CA license + traffic stop =

So I've heard. Maybe it's tolerated now that registration isn't also a tax.

I have said this a million times on ADVRider (ok prolly 20) .... but I will say it again:

GET A AAA MEMBERSHIP !!!!! Do all of your DMV registering through AAA .... It is brainless ... you will not be taking you tank off your bike for a sticker.

DMV is walking into the lions den .... chances of getting out, without getting bit are slim.

And Yes your 2002 ADV R is 50 state legal ... I have one that was legally sold in CA by a KTM dealer in 2002

good news

Well
I owe Crawdaddy for the info. I went down to the DMV again and I said that according to KTM this is a 50 state bike. ( i did call them and they did say this) Then I asked why i needed to remove the gas tank to show you the emissions sticker when the bike has over 7500 miles on it??? The DMV guy asked why would he care what the milage was??? So I handed him the print out from the site crawdaddy shared from the DMV. He read it in my favor and stamped my paper worked and charged me a bunch of sales tax. I am sooooo psyched about the plates, they are in my hand. Now I just have to tell the Mrs' about the $$$$ it cost to register and transfer title!

Thanks everyone, now can I go have some fun???

Slightly OT, but out of curiosity, what about smog tests. Do they smog test bikes in CA?

I bought my 640 [used] in CA (ironically it came from mcgovski's local shop ). The canister etc. fell off not long after I got home to Oregon. If I ever move to CA... would those bits need to reappear?

Dude, congratulations!
It's just this kind of thing that has kept me from living in Kalifornia for the last 20 years.

No check yet but I wouldn't throw any smog stuff away. If I were you I would try to collect all the smog stuff that "fell off" and put them in your attic for when you do come back to cali!

No Smog

I was not asked for a smog check...

Kalifornia, not kidding, we just moved here from Olympia, Washington...to escape all the BS of state Government. BLAM. I guess its here too. At least its killer weather here!

I just put that plate on my bike and the DMV will have to rip it off to get it back from me!

Oh, I had fun on my ride home from work.

THIS IS AMERIKA damn it! Government is into everything. Cradle to grave.
(Kali is usually where all this bad crap originates and spreads east. Here in CT we get CA emissions on our autos too. Thanks Barbara Boxer et.al.

Sweet....glad the folks at your office were reasonable......too bad I didn't bring the F&*^ print out with me this morning but I'm not sure it would've done me any good at that particular office......may just ride over to a different office with the same paperwork and try my luck again (and tools if I get shot down again)

OR, I suppose I could renew my now expired AAA membership.....

Again, Congrat's man.....now go enjoy your scoot!! (and hide all receipts from the gal-pal )

I think the fine point is that even if the vehicle has over 7,500 miles on it you still need to prove it has a 49-state sticker. otherwise it becomes your once-in-a-lifetime kit vehicle /w non certified engine.

Since you're in Nevada City, I'll have to look you up if I ride north to my folks place in Placerville on the 620 sometime so you can show me some of those local riding spots...(in the past, I've always been on the Superhawk when I'm up that way)

Now that you're plated/ready.....think about driving/trailering (or riding) ~200 miles south weekend after next to attend the Bishop 3 Day Dual Sport event......lot's of fun riding in the Bishop/Mammoth Lakes area.......I'll be there with my son and a few buddies from San Diego......

Go here for more info: http://www.advrider.com/forums/showt...ghlight=bishop

Imagine that kind of government competence managing so much of your life, and you are wise to avoid the Golden State.

There's a reason I love Ohio....and it ain't the weather!

Comiefornia!

I'll never understand how any State can have the right to circumvent Federal Laws. The Feds should have the final say I.M.H.O.!
Comiefornia should just fall into the ocean and put everyone out of it's misery.
Fracking State Governments!

I'm from Pa. and it's not much better!
Damn glad you got her registered....now get off the computer and enjoy it.
