    Interesting, not really an option many places.

    Shaggie, so your motor vehicles are not registered annually?

    I suppose I could un-register a bike if I lived in the northern climes of the US. Then re-register. But the hassle would probably negate any savings.

    As ReluctantAdv said, 'interesting.'

    Thing is here, registration is an annual deal, so if you unregister/reregister you won't save anything on the registration. Depending on the state, this may make it possible for you to drop insurance, which can mean bigger savings if you're buying insurance from somebody who will sell it on a month-by-month basis.

    We can put our regos 'on hold' if we're not riding our bikes for periods of at least 3 months.

    Sorry for the late reply, thought I'd pushed 'post reply'

    Can you see two loops of the road curving up the hill in front of the bike?
