1. to avoid paying a lot of taxes
I live in south carolina been working on this bike for a while bought it as a fixer upper got the title transfered in my name as soon as i got it I want to test ride it for a few days know to see if its ready to ride next year. I have insurance on it what do i need to take with me to ride it title has been in my name for a year know never been registered dont want to get a tag and have too pay taxes if i need to do more work rether spend that money on parts if needed so i can get closer to a great rider in stead of it might make it rider
, (especially if you bought the bike from out of state) write up a bill of sale and put down as taxes (already) paid about $ 190.00 ...you'll end up paying about $ 40.00 in taxes
2. to avoid registering you bike for awhile
, make sure you have insurance, that is very important - cops will let you slide with anything else, most of them are sympathetic towards bike riders unless they get caught driving 90 on 35! write your self a bill of sale (from John Doe) and make sure you always have a recent bill of sale with you...dated just few days ago.. if they ever ask you why your insurance is 10 months old, just make up a lie, after about 11 months you should get a new card.
Cops have no way of knowing you had that bike on your name for a year UNLESS it has previously been registered in your name.
...and like my12r
said, don't venture too far from home!
ride nice, and safe, and if they'll pull you over for no tag they'll be more lenient ...got anymore questions like this just let me know privately
