When I bought my VTX it was a US bike, I bought in BC. The "out of country" inspection was done, but because I bought it out of BC, and I live in Alberta, I had to also get an "out of province" inspection done. Heads up fellas, without those stickers, the bike would not have passed the inspections. These are required for the bike to be registered here. Once registered, you can remove them, but they will not pass inspection again, should the bike be sold to a different province. I am not 100% certain every province would require them, but Alberta does. How do I know this? The sticker that identified the year and VIN on mine had a corner that was peeling off, like someone tried to remove it once. I the inspection tech commented to me about it, and I told him it was okay by me to just remove it. He then informed me about the rules at that time. I didn't like the peeled back corner so I glued it back with a drop of super glue.


I thought about how a "sticker" could be that official. Thinking about it, the yearly tags on our plates are official and required and they are only stickers as well, so I guess it makes sense.

but the plate with a sticker... the sticker is for the Current year... showing only you paid your money ...


the police can not read the sticker... but can read the plate from a distance..


but Canada is different then the USA rules..


reason the "VIN" number is still stamped into the FRAME .


the 'tag' is used by Honda for the assembly build... just like cars.

Sure the VIN is still stamped on the frame, that has to be there as well. In the case of a custom build, of course there is no OEM sticker, so the stamp on the frame becomes the VIN. I'm unclear as to why, exactly, just the VIN would not be good enough, especially in that it should match the sticker anyway, and certainly match both the insurance and registration docs, but you can't get a handgun here without either buying it illegally (easy enough for $500.00 or so), or jumping through some serious hoops. Such is living in an almost socialist country. The rules don't always have to make sense ... Lol


OTOH, the sticker is far easier to find and see and the Gestapo around here aren't always that bright. Some of course are great, some ... not so much.
