Miami to NYC fly-n-ride suggestions/help

So I'm flying down to Miami from NYC tomorrow to pick up a bike. Was wondering if you guys could suggest the best way to get temp tags in Florida to avoid potential problems further down the road (I can always slap my old plate on, but I got into some trouble the last time I did that in NY, so would like to minimize the risk this time around. When I picked up a bike from Maryland a couple years ago, the DMV said that I would have to pay the tax for the bike in order to get a tag. Is this the case in Florida? If so, is there anyway to recoup that so that I'm not paying tax twice on it?

Since I'm getting it on Sunday, I figured that I could spend the night near the northern border and hit the DMV in the morning.

Would anyone in the northeastern part of the state happen to have a couch I could crash on, or a yard to camp in?

Also, any route suggestions to test the new bike's twistie worthiness east of the blue ridge or not-to-be-missed food spots to check out on the way up?

I did just the opposite.....flew into NYC and rode home to FL.
I didn't even bother to hit the DMV....just rode all the way with no tag.
I figured I had a bill of sale, the signed title and 10 days to make the transfer. No issues whatsoever. Even when there were LEO's right behind me stopped at a light. I started a thread and posted my preliminary route. Had a good time riding home.

Here's a link to the google map of the route I took.

Yes.

You could try calling and consulting the Florida's DMV and tax collector's office for your options.

Thanks. In the end, the PO was nice enough to let me use his plate to avoid the headache. I ended up just slabbing it back up due to time constraints. Most boring two and a half days I've ever spend on a bike.
