the bike has no title yet. (we are waiting on the guy who sold my buddy the bike to get the title)

but i really want to break this bike in. i wont be riding hard today (this bike it new to me)

i just remembered i have no insurance..

anyways what kind os trouble will i get into for having a bike without up to date plates.. just a ticket? im not worried about the insurance thing.. ill be in houston, and its just a ticket that will get dismissed becasue ill get insurance on it monday when my agent gets back into town.. thanks

You can go to the tax office and get a temporary tag for the bike. I don't know the details, but I had to do it for a car I bought that I was driving back from the valley. If you get a ticket, you'll have ten days to get the registration/inspection. Just don't leave it- and make sure it's insured before you ride it anywhere.

Get a paper tag and you're good to go. That and common sense requires to have insurance though which can be done in 5 minutes online and would be the right and smart thing to do.

in galvez (unless you're a local )if you don't have a mc endorsement they deem your ins not valid and make you park it, have someone legal come ride it or truck/tow it.
they see you on it again it's jail time
