Len, the idea of using a statement of facts to ditch the fees was a "hint" from a dmv clerk... dunno if it will fly yet. appointment later this week...

I have a manufacturer certificate of origin bike has never been on the street or registered, can I get a transportation permit without getting anally raped by the DMV?

I downloaded and printed the form REG 712 from DMV's website and took it to CSAA's DMV counter which was useless.

Being unwilling to spend 2 hours to, at and from a DMV building, I hit speakerphone and called DMV and was eventually advised to mail REG 712 to DMV, PO Box 94869, Sacramento, CA 94269 along with a check for $18.

Hopefully whomever receives it will know what to do with it, the phone tech didn't know what it was until today.

Thanks for the followup Tom. What is the actual size of the sticker? Where will you put yours?

I don't think anyone has ever been hassled for transporting a non-registered bike on a trailor or pick-up truck.
This provision just looks like another way DMV can collect a fee concerning a motor vehicle.
I would ignore this feature, the "Transportation Permit".

I just went to the DMV for the second time for my latest track bike. I brought the same paperwork, but they wouldn't issue me a transportation permit this time. The gal at the counter said that I'd need to go through Sacramento, even though she had found the stickers in the back office and had the CVC stuff that I'd brought sitting in front of her. She said that all she could do from her office was to non-op the bike. I paid my fees and as I left she told me not to forget my sticker. I looked at her and asked, "Are you sure...?" She told me just to take it and not worry about contacting Sacramento. Cost ended up being the same to me: $18, one time fee.

If a cop knows his/her stuff and really doesn't like your Bush = Hitler bumper sticker, there could be much more than $18 to settle.

Sounds like cheap insurance to me.

It's about the size of a California Green Sticker, 3 1/2" wide x about 2 1/2".

My first choice was to offer it up as an emergency bikini bottom for my gf or perhaps as that plus a couple of pasties to be fully legal () but my Mototote is setup so that the front wheel rides left side of the truck so I attached the sticker to the left fork slider (lower leg, not as in frame or axle slider).

Given more patience, I might have decided on a different location but it's very unlikely that I'd ever swap to a more modern front end without getting the whole of the motorcycle that it is attached to and if I crash bad enough to need a new sticker, I'll have much bigger problems.

Nice. lol, kind of small for a 2pc bottom. But a fork bottom maybe the rear / inside part seems like a reasonable spot, unless you want high visibility in addition to easy access (here we go with bikini bottom again) in which case there are better spots.

Did this today. Filled out form 712 and handed it to the clerk. After 20 minutes of the supervisor in the phone with Sac, I got my sticker. $18, they said they treat it like an Off Highway Vehicle (OHV) in their system.

DMV doesn't want my $18

So I tried to get the transportation permit last week at the DMV. A very nice employee and a just as nice supervisor spent 20 minutes trying to figure out what was needed (I brought the form filled out in advance but neither had seen it before). They found that the fee was $18 but they didn't have the sticker. They accepted my payment, gave me a receipt and said the sticker would arrive in a few weeks.

Imagine my surprise when I received a phone call today from the DMV. The supervisor was calling to tell me that the Sacramento office said they didn't have this type of permit and that they were issuing a refund for my $18. Apparently this isn't too high on DMV's list and since I've made a more than reasonable attempt to do what is right, I'll accept my $18 back and consider that I've done what I can to be in compliance.

Weirdest coincidence...as I was talking with the DMV representative I was attending a track day at Infineon: looking at my bike that, of course, was transported in the back of my truck.
