I should be in jail? WTF dude, if the cops put me in jail for that the system is seriously up. They aint got nothing better to do than that!? He probably wouldn't have known the difference between and RC51 and VFR800, I shouldn't even have mentioned it, I was trying to be honest with him and look where it got me
You have no clue, do you? Turn in your license. You are too ignorant to drive. I dont want you on the same streets as me. PERIOD.

You cant drive a vehicle on the street until it is REGISTERED. pretty simple concept. Switching plates WILL get you thrown in jail. I have no clue how long you sucked this cop off, but you did a good job!

sake, I thought it would look worse if I rode with no plate. I thought I'd immediately get pulled over with the cop thinking I stole the bike.

I guess I'm irritated because of all the that race on the street and run all the time and never get , and I have to deal with this horse .

Dude you're a tool.

Yeah I don't need to be on the road with you because my bike wasn't registered....yet. I had insurance and a license. Which is way more than half the riders in Houston.

Thats why it stays in the garage until registered, as ALL vehicles do.

Well, you DID get lucky. I doubt the judge will see it any differently. Just be thankful you didn't go to jail. Those cops around there can be REAL about stuff. This is actually surprising to all of us that you didn't get hit with the book.

What you did, I wouldn't rank anywhere close to stealing a bike or running from the police, but everyone knows its HIGHLY illegal to do.

I just didn't figure it'd be a big deal to use the plate from another bike in my name that I OWN, to go the tax office. I certainly didn't think I could get freaking arrested for it.


The obscured plate was BS I think, you can see my plate from 50 ft away just fine. He was nitpicking because they have obviously been told to crack down on bikers. Bottom line is, some hats act the fool and the rest of us have to pay for it.

Yes I broke the law by switching the plates, I'm stupid because I thought it would be better than no plate. I never had this problem before because the owners I bought my other bikes from left the plates on so I didn't have to deal with it.

Memorial Villages have been tagging bikers for years...ive been tagged there twice. Of course I was doing 70+ in the 35mph part for fun passing people. They just want money they really dont give a about pulling ppl to jail unless your drunk

OR... he would have been required to tow the bike (or not let you ride it away) if he wrote a ticket for wrong plates. Basically, he gave you a severe warning... aka lesser charge... so you could be on your way.

They probably figure you're hiding something with different plates, and that you plan to do it for awhile... otherwise you wouldn't have bothered with mounting the incorrect plates. THAT is what they are trying to stop.

I agree that we will feel a lot of heat because of the dumbass Yankees.

Most likely the thing that kept your out of the clank is it was YOUR plate, and not someone elses.

Obscure plate? Yeah, I've gotten them before. Paid the fine and left the plate where its at. The bike I just bought is probably "obscure", oh well. I'm not moving it.

I figured having a plate on it was better than no plate, but he still gave me the ticket. I guess if I rode with no plate I would have been fine. WTF. I told him I had the signed title and bill of sale in my bag.

CAN YOU EVEN RIDE A SPORT BIKE IN HOUSTON ANYMORE!
cry cry cry, I dont know why your , you got caught riding an unregistered vehicle on public roads, its not like they made up charges to nail you on. dang I dont see the problem, I'd bet you get it handled now huh?
Seriously sounds like they cut you a break, an obscured plate I am sure is cheaper than unregistered vehicle ticket

What are you talking about. I was getting the title and plate switched today, apparently if I rode without the plate from my other bike I would have been fine. Still got pulled over, but could have used the title as proof
its still an unregistered vehicle until this afternoon, which = you got lucky he didnt rape you this morning, I dont know what you dont see here

Even with a signed title and bill of sale, you are not the legal owner until to go to the tax office and pay the taxes and transfer the title into your name....(and I am not even going to go into the license plate )

So instead of blaming it on the idiots in NY, man up and admit you made a mistake, got a ticket, and move on with your day....
