Sure glad I live in B.C. Canada. All of my bikes are registered as Collector and get plates that say that on them. Here we can register any bike older than 25 years as either a standard bike, Collector or Vintage. There are some restrictions on getting the Collector or Vintage plates.

Collector - Bike must be stock as orignal for the era. i.e. stock paint colors, stock wheels, stock seat, stock exhaust, etc. Any of that can be reproduced to the era. Pictures must be supplied to register the bike this way. Any changes made after the pictures are submitted can and will void insurance coverage. You can ride the bike anywhere at any time, except to and from work or school. You must have a regularly insured vehicle (can be for pleasure use only) before you can register a Collector or Vintage bike. There is no restriction on how many miles riden nor where, I have ridden all over North America with these plates and never had any problems at all.

Also, Collector insurance is dirt cheap compared to regular insurance.

I've got an antique plate from GA and haven't had any problems. Heck, I got a reckless driving charge a few days ago for kicking wheelies on the damn thing and the cop didn't bother me about it. I bet you can ride it as much as you want and be fine.

I have owned the R80 since I bought it new in 1986.
That's incredible. Yep, now you owe us bike stories

The bollox came from the insurance company, not the State.
The insurance company ASSUMES an antique bike cannot ridden more than a few miles a year, and only then to the show.
