I cant believe how well rumors, lies, and facts of fantasy are believed, and passed on, never seeming to die. The truth lives, but doesnt get much air time. I must take a stand against all the BS spreading know it alls. I have even heard MC dealers and salespeople repeating crap they havn't a clue about, like its gospel. California registration and plates for an xr650r, (probably any non 2 stroke) is NOT impossible. Its NOT even diffucult. If you are intelligent enough to read this message, you have enough brains to get a BRP plated. Follow the simple rules (DMV will even help you) and its done. I have done so this year ('06), its not rocket science-not even brain surgery. The whole process is really very simple. I only bother with this rant cause Id love to see EVERYONE happy as me, and on a BRP. Who needs cars? Over the mountains and down to the Mall, if we all rode instead of drove, gas would cost a nickle, and the Taliban would be tryin to sell sand. Thanks for listening, and please help spread some truth!
