Legal in Cali

My name is Ernie and I used to ride vfr750. 3 weeks ago, after a 9year hiatus, I bought an 05 919 registered out of state. I was a little worried I wouldn't be able to register it here in Cali. Had all my paperwork but guy at DMV wrote "No Emissions Sticker" during VIN verification. Fortunately, the lady inside didn't say anything and I got my plates yesterday!!

Great site, with lots of info. The seller highly recommended subscribing to WT.

You're not the guy that bought MajorNickmo's award winning bike, are you?

If you are, then congrats on a great steal, I mean deal.

yup! that's me.

I was window shopping at Bert's in Azusa and saw a brand new 07 919 for 6500. Went home to see if I could find a used one and saw Nick's bike on craigslist. Saw it and bought it. Already put 1000+ miles on it.
