I was stopped by a CHP for having a grey market bike on the street. My bike is legally registered in California but the cop said the DMV made a mistake and shouldn't issued me a license plate. Now he required me to bring the bike down to the CHP office to see a VIN officer. Can they legally take my bike away from me? Any advice will greatly be appreciated.
