Hoping to get some insight from any of you guys that are in New York riding around with Vermont plates.
I've registered and plated a couple of mopeds as Class B in NY (under 30MPH, motorcycle license not required, insurance required) without issue, but I hit a snag recently trying to register a Hero Majestic Panther.
Like the wiki says, NY DMV has a special list of "limited use vehicles", and if your bikes not on it then no registration for you. Well, the Panther isn't on it, so whatever I'll mail in for a Vermont registration, right?
I mention this to my friend, who advises me to "watch out for issues with your insurance company, because the state of your registration has to match the state of your policy". I confirmed with my insurance agent that this is the case. Huh.
So what exactly does that mean - if I'm rolling around with VT plates in NY do I just not insure it? Or do I still need to have the insurance to appease NY cops in the event I'm pulled over, even if if it's not technically "covered"? (edited)
