Whats up with CA, why is it so hard to find a plated CA bike. can you go to a state with a smaller pole up it's a$$ and title it there then transfer it? my 650r motard is plated, and it wasn't a big deal. in AK or TN. If you want a certain plated bike (650R) here with a Ca. plate then it must have been plated before the emmissions cutoff in 04. Getting harder to find. Simple!
