M/C registration and New Zealand
I will possibly be laid off in Nov/Dec and I am thinking of going to NZ for a few months. Option 1 is to take my Colorado registered M/C to NZ and Option 2 is buy one there, ride it and then ship it back. Now the questions.
On option 1, can you do a full NZ registration on the M/C versus retaining the US registration - easier to blend in locally ? Would I be able to retain the US - Colorado title. What I read, you have to have your title shown to US customs when the bike is exiting the USA to go on a boat. What are the details on that ?
On option 2, how difficult is it to bring in a foreign M/C into the US especially with customs and registering it with a US state. Does a NZ bike get a NZ title or a "MSO" which starts the title paper trail ?
