Hey Federal way, WA is fing with a motorized bicyclist thinking about registering in Cali and have my stuff sent to WA for transfer...


Anyone know anything about this I got the registration form for California but will they send my plates, tabs, title, registration to WA state?


I've read about how to code the bike with the serial number as well for the engine number in this forum.

Why can't you just register it where you are? If you get a California plate and "transfer" it, by law, you're supposed to destroy the plate or turn it in when you get one from your state.

If you have someone here do it and it's not in your name, then legally, it's not your bike.

If you find someone here that can register it in your name, that's fraud, and can get you both in trouble (probably not much trouble, but I wouldn't risk it.)
