I'm not sure of the procedure either, however I believe it is much easier with motorcycles than cars.

Euro bikes must meet Euro3 or Euro4 standards which are always more stringent than US emissions standards, so I don't think you'll have a problem there. This may be as easy as having a local DMV officer do a walk around and notate the emissions and noise compliance stickers.

You may want to look into getting a membership with the AAA Auto Club - one of their benefits is that they can do certain Department of Motor Vehicle tasks for you. You could just find the closest office and ask some questions, may be your best bet.

Coming from Germany you are going to be shocked at how inefficient and unorganized our state and government functions are. The beaches are nice though!

Beside the EPA rules and the rest of the legal junk, you'll be paying a good chunk for shipping and import taxes. Not sure how much they are for bikes but they're not very cheap for cars. If you're dead set on importing your CBR then look into those first and see if it makes financial sense. Might be better off selling it in Germany and buying another here.
