Help Californian Resident? - DMV/Insurance/Address

I am an Irish citizen and I recently graduated from University several months ago. I decided to quit my job to travel from La to Argentina. I am flying to LA this Sunday and buying a motorcycle.

I have just become aware that I need an address in California for the DMV and insurance company to send bike papers.

Unfortunately, I do not have any close friends there who could lend me an address temporarily so I could register the bike. I will be staying in America for just over 1 month, and when i leave I will take the bike of the address.

I was wondering if you could help me out please? Either you could personally allow me to use your address to register/insure my bike with or you have a close friend in the state of California who could.

When the papers arrive I would like to pick them up off you or I will supply money for postage to my current address.

I am making a documentary/vblog about my trip you can check out the begins of my channel here. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IPrcilRkAHA

I see Michael has you set up with a CA address, but if you use a Nevada address the DMV fees (and maybe the insurance) WILL be less expensive.

The Nevada idea has merit. Esp if you are buying a new bike.
Worth considering.
