I'm getting a 2003 Yamaha WR450. I live in California. I want to be able to street register it. I understand that it is impossible to get a CA plate with all the current CARB restrictions. I've heard that you can get a Vermont plate so the bike is street legal. I have a couple of questions: 1. Is getting the Vermont plate relatively easy? Are there any tricks to the process other than following what they ask on the site. 2. I know that technically if you are a CA resident your vehicles are supposed to be registered here. Have you had any experience of what happens when you encounter the CHP or Rangers with the Vermont plate? What is the best and worst case scenario? 3. Once the bike is a "used" street bike from Vermont can it be "imported" to California at some point? 4. As far as you know is it really impossible to get a CA plate on a 2003 WR. I was thinking of buying one out of state and just trying to push it through the DMV.
