Registering an unreged bike?

I bought my girlfriend a bike to learn on that needed some work about 3 months ago. Its now in shape to get registered, and just wanted to make sure that I got this clear so I can spend as little time waiting in line as possible

It doesn't have plates. I have a bill of sale and title signed over to me.

So from what I understand I need to:
1) Insure it
2) Get it inspected
3) Go to the county tax office and transfer it over/register it?

Since it doesn't have plates, I can't ride it on public roads right? I live about a 5 minute walk from a sticker shop where I got my bike inspected, can I just walk the bike there on the side walk without getting into trouble should a cop drive by?

Yes U can walk it over on the sidewalk I believe without any hassle, I would just personally ride it and have all your paperwork in hand just in case, U would have to be very unlucky and get stopped by a cop that is a real to really get into trouble, most important thing is insurance, even if U did get 2 tickets they would get dismissed if these were taken care of in 10 days

there is another form you need - the one that states the odometer reading and sale price.
Can't remember what its called but I had to get this and get it signed by P.O. before I could get my last bike registered.

I don't think you need an inspection for registration or title transfer purposes(only if the vehicle is out of state or salvage). You need the 130-u form, which should be signed by the seller of the vehicle usually, but a bill of sale can sometimes be substituted.

And insurance of course.

no, not just the inspection sticker....no plates, no insurance, not registered, and no inspection...there is no way a leo wouldn't give the fault to the mc driver....even if the fault lays on the cage...just saying be careful if you are going to KNOWINGLY drive like that....I've done it before, I'm not innocent, just offering a ride to keep someone on this forum from starting a thread from jail...

Thanks for the offer, but I'm near downtown so a fair ways away. Appreciate it tho.

I got it all done yesterday, was super easy, all i needed was inspection, insurance and title/bill of sale. Lady gave me the plate then and there.

Got the bike there safely and back too, stayed off main roads, no problem. It was about a 1 minute ride each way.
