Thanks for the advice guys. Yes, you're right Rick about needing insurance 1st (I always forget which came 1st, the chicken or the egg).
I peeled off the outdated stickers a long time ago, because of course it doesn't matter down here in South America, but it definitely matters when I start riding in North America again. I do have a fake license plate with 'modified' date stickers that would probably get me back to Canada, but I'd hate to get stopped in North America with that. I (stupidly) did not renew the registration last year with a simple mail-in process, and now that it has to be renewed after a year without, I'm worried that now it won't be so easy. I'll take a look on the site you sent for more info.
Cheers from Brazil,
