Plating An o5 In Arizona?.........

16 posts in this topic

Anyone know what I need to do to get my bike plated in AZ? My Aunt lives there and would be more than happy to loan her address for the cause. What's the skinny? I know that Az will reg just about anything? but I'll be taking a cal green sticker bike and trying to get it plated in AZ. Will I need to put it in her name? Any help on this issue would be greatly appreciated.

Bring the bike in and tell them you made it street legal. Also tell them you are going to be a "snow bird" and use the bike in AZ for transporation.(so you dont need a AZ drivers lic)

You'll need insurance too.

being under 5 yrs old it won need to be smogged BUT after 5 yrs it needs it every other year......

You might be better off getting an Az drivers lic so when in ca a ranger or cop dosnt through the book at you....... because you'll lose your green sticker

Hey Kyron, so funny you say "SNOW BIRD" I was thinking the same thing. How does the dual lic. work? can a person have a lic. in two different states? So what do I need for smogging after 5-years? what are the lic. requirements? what are the requirements on the bike for AZ? plate holder, blinkers, mirror, horn, high/low beam, break light, etc. Do you know more or less?

Thanks for the help........

I think in AZ all you do is tape a flashlight to the handlebars and they hand you a plate.

I just got my 07 plated over the Phoenix SX weekend a couple of weeks ago. You will need a horn (I used a bicycle horn), functioning brake light, headlight, mirror and your title. A clerk came out, checked my VIN and gave me my plate. I registered it for two years, so between all the fees the total cost was about $240. I went to the office of the company below (open Saturdays) in Phoenix:

It has to be duct tape though. Scotch tape has been banned since 2000.

I forgot to mention that rule, my bad. thanks! :busted:

I heard of a plan where you put your name on the registration and then you put you name and middle initial (or something close) as the "Lien Holder" that way when you are stopped in CA with your (CDL) you say the owner is in AZ and lets you ride the bike. In reality you still keep control of the title if you want to sell.

Anybody buying this plan? It may be just enough to confuse the ranger.

I am so all over that come March 7th. So easy to do I was amazed. One it needs to be in a AZ resident' or part time resident with a local address. Needs Ins. also. The only thing they will check is the VIN/Title. "We don't check all that it is required to have, if you go and ride it illegal and get a ticket that is on you" My kind of people.

Do not forget about old Joe Arpaio the Maricopa County Sheriff. If anybody is gonna bust balls its gonna be this guy...heres an excerpt

SHERIFF JOE IS AT IT AGAIN

Maricopa County was spending approx. $18 million dollars a year on stray animals, like cats and dogs. Sheriff Joe offered to take the department over, and the County Supervisors said okay. The animal shelters are now all staffed and operated by prisoners. They feed and care for the strays. Every animal in his care is taken out and walked twice daily. He now has prisoners who are experts in animal nutrition and behavior. They give great classes for anyone who'd like to adopt an animal. He has literally taken stray dogs off the street, given them to the care of prisoners, and had them place in dog shows. The best part? His budget for the entire department is now under $3 million. Teresa and I adopted a Weimaraner from a Maricopa County shelter two years ago. He was neutered, and current on all shots, in great health, and even had a microchip inserted the day we got him. Cost us $78.

The prisoners get the benefit of about $0.28 an hour for working, but most would work for free, just to be out of their cells for the day. Most of his budget is for utilities, building maintenance, etc. He pays the prisoners out of the fees collected for adopted animals. I have long wondered when the rest of the country would take a look at the way he runs the jail system, and copy some of his ideas. He has a huge farm, donated to the county years ago, where inmates can work, and they grow most of their own fresh vegetables and food, doing all the work and harvesting by hand. He has a pretty good sized hog farm, which provides meat, and fertilizer. It fertilizes the Christmas tree nursery, where prisoners work, and you can buy a living Christmas tree for $6 - $8 for the Holidays, and plant it later. We have six trees in our yard from the Prison.

Yup, he was reelected last year with 83% of the vote. Now he's in trouble with the ACLU again. He painted all his buses and vehicles with a mural, that has a special hotline phone number painted on it, where you can call and report suspected illegal aliens. Immigrations and Customs Enforcement wasn't doing enough in his eyes, so he had 40 deputies trained specifically for enforcing immigration laws, started up his hotline, and bought 4 new buses just for hauling folks back to the border. He's kind of a 'Git-R Dun' kind of Sheriff.

Update on Joe Arpaio

TO THOSE OF YOU NOT FAMILIAR WITH JOE ARPAIO

HE IS THE MARICOPA ARIZONA COUNTY SHERIFF

AND HE KEEPS GETTING ELECTED OVER AND OVER

THIS IS ONE OF THE REASONS WHY:

Sheriff Joe Arpaio

(In Arizona)

Who created the 'Tent City Jail': He has jail meals down to 40 cents a serving and charges the inmates for them.

He stopped smoking and porno magazines in the jails. Took away their weights Cut off all but 'G' movies.

He started chain gangs so the inmates could do free work on county and city projects.

Then He Started Chain Gangs For Women So He Wouldn't Get Sued For Discrimination.

He took away cable TV Until he found out there was A Federal Court Order That Required Cable TV For Jails So He Hooked Up The Cable TV Again. Only Let In The Disney Channel And The Weather Channel.

When asked why the weather channel He replied, So They Will Know How Hot It's Gonna Be While They Are Working ON My Chain Gangs.

He Cut Off Coffee Since It Has Zero Nutritional Value.

When the inmates complained, he told them, 'This Isn't The Ritz/Carlton..If You Don't Like It, Don't Come Back.'

He bought Newt Gingrich's lecture series on videotape that he pipes into the jails.

When asked by a reporter if he had any lecture series by a Democrat, he replied that a democratic lecture series might explain why a lot of the inmates were in his jails in the first place.

More On The Arizona Sheriff:

With Temperatures Being Even Hotter Than Usual In Phoenix (116 Degrees Just Set A New Record), The Associated Press Reports: About 2,000 Inmates Living In A Barbed-Wire-Surrounded Tent Encampment At The Maricopa County Jail Have Been Given Permission To Strip Down To Their Government-Issued Pink Boxer Shorts.

On Wednesday, hundreds of men wearing boxers were either curled up on their bunk beds or chatted in the tents, which reached 138 Degrees Inside The Week Before.

Many Were Also Swathed In Wet, Pink Towels As Sweat Collected On Their Chests And Dripped Down To Their PINK SOCKS.

'It Feels Like We Are In A Furnace,' Said James Zanzot, An Inmate Who Has Lived In The TENTS for 1 year. 'It's Inhumane.'

Joe Arpaio, the tough-guy sheriff who created the tent city and long ago started making his prisoners wear pink, and eat bologna sandwiches, is not one bit sympathetic. He said Wednesday that he told all of the inmates: 'It's 120 Degrees In Iraq And Our Soldiers Are Living In Tents Too, And They Have To Wear Full Battle Gear, But They Didn't Commit Any Crimes, So Shut Your Damned Mouths!'

Way To Go, Sheriff!

Maybe if all prisons were like this one there would be a lot less crime and/or repeat offenders. Criminals should be punished for their crimes - not live in luxury until it's time for their parole, only to go out and commit another crime so they can get back in to live on taxpayers money and enjoy things taxpayers can't afford to have for themselves.
