Default I really need help with registering my new Motorcycle.?

I just bought a 08 Yamaha FZ6 from a private person that the DMV in CA says they won't register because it doesn't meet the states emition standards. They said that usually there wouldn't be a problem since I'm military as there is a loophole but I can't get it since I bought the bike in CA and it has less the 7000 miles or something like that. So the only thing I can think of doing is registering it in my home state (New Mexico) were the laws are loser with that sort of stuff. I called them but they said I could send in the paperwork and stuff but I need a NM motorcycle license but I only have a CA one thats for Motorcycles. The other option is driving it down there but I have no experience and I don't think a 800 mile drive on I-40 is a good way to learn. Does anyone have any options they can think of? Cause I really don't want to get rid of the bike.

How did you buy a non-CA bike in CA?You might get a speedo from an 07 or such with more than 7000 miles, install it and register it.They will probably want to see the bike and title in NM before registering it.What state is title from?

I dont know why NM DMV wont register it? It doesn't matter who owns a motorcycle, just who drives it. Have your Mom or somebody register it; what matters is the insurance. Souble check with the insurance company to see if your Mom or whoever owns a motorcycle if you could drive it?
