I know I'm going out of order but I just hit a major snag. Went to send in the MSO in exchange for a street title. I was just going to send it through this way first in an effort to avoid the State Police inspection. I know of several folks who have done this and it has worked for them. So I went to my friendly title office (not DMV). I have dealt with these folks quite a bit over the past few years and they have always been helpful. Well, the nice lady told me that the State deleted their regulations regarding street titling off-road vehicles on September 28th of this year. This includes the inspection route. In other words, there is currently no way to legally title the bike for on road use in Louisiana.
I still have to think it over but I may end up having to title it in another state and bringing it in to Louisiana. I'll keep you posted. Any ideas?
