You could have at least have had insurance if you are sharing the road

If the registration on the bike is expired you could have negotiated the price of the bike more.In the mean time good luck

Do you have pics of the bike completely torn apart? I would show those to the judge also to try to prove that the bike has not been operatable for awhile and that is the reason it wasn't registered.

same thing happened with me...registration and insurance tickets.

was in the process of getting bonded title and had 30 days of insurance coverage on a new vehicle from my insurance company. I showed up to court with the newly acquired title and registration, a copy of my newly acquired insurance on the bike, and my previous policy showing coverage of the ticket date on my truck. A lady called to verify I was covered at the time, and that my policy extends to new purchases. DA dismissed it with no fees.

So in closing if you had car insurance when the pig stopped you, then you should be good when you get to the courthouse to pay your fees (if any)

in TEXAS if you have a full coverage on one of your vehicles, techincally you will be covered for all your vehicles.

To my understanding, if I get the bike registered and get insurance, I should be able to get the ticket dismissed, correct? If so, how do I go about registering such an out of date tag without getting raped by fees? Any input would be greatly appreciated, thanks!

For realz?

I have a question. does anyone know the form needed to transfer a vehicle title into my name? I bought a bike and i need to register it. I would like to fill the paper work out b4 i go to the tax office. Also, I dont think the previous owner did the registration into his name. If i cant get a hold of him then i have to apply for a bonded title right? Is this a pain in the ? Would it be worth trying to find the previous owner?
i think this makes him look human. you always get people thinking they soooooo perfect, well your not. at least Obama was cool enough to be himself. thats why i look up to him, he's like an average black male but with intelligence. -Actual Quote from a Barack Obama supporter

Never heard of car insurance covering a person's bike. I'd have to see a statute on that one.

You got the ticket, you're on the hook. Doesnt matter who the bike is officially registered to.

Having been 4 years since registration you may not be able to get a dismissal by registering it now. I was told by a jp once that because my registration had been put for too long that even though I'd registered it in the meantime I still had to pay the ticket.

You're screwed on the insurance. Getting insurance after the fact will not help you with the ticket.
