This practice costs California millions each year in revenue. While CHP and other law enforcement agencies try to reinforce the 20-day window registration requirement, enforcement is just one of their many public service duties."

Sorry, but it doesn't "cost" California anything. Quite frankly, it's unjust to state that if I was a resident of another state, and purchased a car in that state, and paid that state whatever taxes it asked of my vehicle, that if one day within an arbitrary range I decide to move to another state, that I should pay new taxes on that same (now devalued) piece of property I already own at retail levels all over again. That's government-approved theft, and I'll never fault anybody for skirting it. California had nothing to do with the original transaction. And I don't see California asking for taxes on all the other property I brought into state lines that were taxed at another state's rate.



The action words in that URL are meant to enflame and get the populace to ignore the bad practice of attempting theft by stating that some rando is somehow costing them money so that they'll act as citizen police. Not in.

Why would this be an argument? State of origin has no relevance to the fictitious accident and the ability of my insurer to cover the liability.[/quote]

I'm not insuring a new vehicle. As someone with coverage in CA, your insurance applies to the vehicles you drive. E.g. rent a car in NYC.

Again, this is not my motorcycle. I am not attempting to curtail taxes or plate costs. "Officer, I'm borrowing my father's vehicle with his permission."

Look "you're pulling a fast one" and you know it....LOL.

I understand it's not your motorcycle.

But you're going to add it to your existing policy, Your insurance company will want to see the registration and get the plate number. And they will ask about getting it registered in CA with CA plates.

I think you're cousin is a fool, I wouldn't allow someone else be it family or not to drive a vehicle titled to me for liability issues.

Do what you want, I worked with someone who kept UT plates on their car because it was cheaper, got pulled over one day for speeding, had a CA license and tried to tell the cop they lived in both states, cop didn't buy it.

It wasn't meant to be funny. And you started the thread; sorry if you don't like the answers you're receiving.

No problem. Both cars are registered to my daughters Texas address. I'm not paying 600 bucks a year compared to 120 in Texas. No.

Don't worry about it. Remember, you are posting on a forum where the people here voted themselves a 2% state tax increase in 2012. Many do not realize that there are states that don't tax income. Or charge less than 100.00 a year in vehicle registration. LAPD has better things to do. And cops can't just stop you for driving out of state tags.

I'm not worried about it, the OP started a thread about using a relative's motorcycle registered in another state and titled to the relative, and bringing it out here and riding it, and it also doesn't have the proper exhaust system CA requires.

They asked about issues that could arise, and I brought those issues up.

No kidding, as in the example I gave they get pulled over for a moving violation, than the cop starts to question why it is registered out of state when the operator has a CA license. You start giving the cop a big song and dance and here come the tickets.

That’s what’s up for debate - whether or not PD would give you grief considering the paperwork is technically in order.

CA auto insurance policies cover the vehicles you temporarily borrow and rent. This motorcycle would not need to be listed on my policy.

“Pulling a fast one”? Not sure why this is someone’s thought. Why would anyone be so ridiculous as to purchase a motorcycle and go through such great lengths just to ride a few miles when one is readily available?
