    I've added another hooligan to the stable

    License plate that is..................

    I was helping a friend get the info from Maine for a plate for his KTM200. I was looking around on the Maine DMV site and looked at the Vanity Plate section. I have this plate in Va. for my Tuono and thought it would be cool/funny on my KTM200. I love the oxymoron as the bottom of the Maine MC plates say "Ride Safe"

    I ordered it, only 17 bucks. Should have it in 4-6 weeks

    Appropriate for a 2 stroke dirtbike I think!
    I'm the "main" Hulign!

    Easy peasy my friend

    Maine, New Hampshire (and other states I'm sure) do not require you to be a resident to register a vehicle in their state. You must have a valid drivers license from one of the other states, proof of insurance, sale receipt and MSO if new. Send it in, get a registration and plate about 10 days later. My Maine registration has my MD address on it.

    It's funny cause, I have a Virginia license and it has my Maryland address on it on a bike that has a maine plate with a registration that has my MD address.

    2 bikes with Va plates
    1 with a MD plate
    1 with a Maine plate

    other 2 are trials bikes.....

    I wasn't aware that Maine and NH did that in New England, only Vermont. Anything under 400cc's (I think) can be registered on the street with just a bill of sale (no title required), and then Vermont will in turn issue a title and plates for the vehicle, which is how a lot of people end up making their 2 stroke dirt bikes street legal.

    Ok, so why do you want/need to have the reg in Maine?

    Face reality, or perish, I guess.

    It is a 200cc KTM 2 Stroke. Technically speaking, not legal to register a 2 Stroke since 85 I think? I need the plate for the Enduro races as they are not closed course and you are required to run on some public roads to connect sections together. Maine is easy. Maryland requires an inspection unless you buy new, then I could have gotten a maryland plate, but by going through Maine, I avoid inspections, and going to the DMV and it was cheap. Va. is pretty easy to get a 2stroke plated but, they charge personal property tax so add another 50-100 bucks a year if you go Va.

    So Maine was easy, cheap and I could do it all through the mail!

    This might just be the way I can get around the Georgia smog testing that my car never passes.
    Naughty but legal.

    Now this may not keep you outta of a ticket in Ga. If you are pulled over and you have a Ga. license and a Ga. residence, you could still get a ticket, will depend on how the Ga. laws are written. Normally, they do require you to have your states tags on vehicles driven and kept in said state. I know hawaii did. They gave you one year if you brought a car in with outta state tags.

    But for my case, we are talking about sanctioned races where the local police know we are there and the only way you'll get in trouble is if you are being a ass on the public roads between sections. Remember, this vehicle is only used for races, I do not commute or ride around town on it.

    I personally wouldn't do this for a vehicle i was gonna drive on the road all of the time, eventually I think you might get a ticket...
