Baja Designs sells a kit, but I'm not sure if it's worth my time or money to give it a shot.

Help from anyone would be appreciated
I went through this with my bike. First you have to get a title. Take the MCO to a DMV and try to get a title, fill out the form for a plate and hopefully you'll get a regular title with a plate. If you get the right teller they can make this happen. I wasn't that lucky. You'll also have to pay sales tax for the bike.

If they don't want to give you a title print this out and take it with you http://leg1.state.va.us/cgi-bin/legp...cod+46.2-644.1. Have proof of ownership and you should at least be able to get an OHV title. Then you will have to convert it to a regular title. If you end up with an OHV title let me know and I'll tell what you need to do. It takes about 2 or 3 weeks to get the OHV title converted to a regular title.

Good luck!

edit: Whoa! I just looked at your reference. That's a very handy provision in the law.
Here's a trick I learned. if the CO is branded with "off-road use only" or some thing like that, you run a fair risk of getting an OHV or "Dirt" title.

Cover up the stamp with a file folder label. One of the really sticky ones. Type a file number of some kind on it. Make it look official.

If they ask about it, just say it came that way from the dealer or finance company.

finding tools

Don't think I'll be by until 11 or 12.

Got some family type stuff at 10 or so and before I can ride my bike anywhere I need to jump start it.

I went to start it this morning to ride to work and the battery was dead.

Doh I think I left the ignition turned to P instead of lock. Oh well, charging the battery booster tonight.

fun with battery acid

So Friday I went to start my bike and discovered my battery was really dead. The dash clock didn't even display.

This morning I jump started my bike and went for a 40 minute ride while watching my gauges constantly reset. I decide to go to autozone to get the battery tested. It didn't charge at all, couldn't even power the clock after I turned the bike off.

Buy a battery at Autozone. Ride to MikeIn Richmonds house and put the bike on the side stand. Battery acid starts running out the side of the bike.

Bozo at Autozone overfilled the battery. They didn't have another one in stock so I went to another autozone to get it swapped.

The 2nd battery from autozone was wrapped in plastic inside it's box so it was obvious no body had messed it up. I got to add the acid while in the parking lot and install the battery myself. Atleast this one isn't spraying acid all over the inside of my bike.

I did wash the underseat area of my bike to get rid of the acid.

The bad battery was the original from the factory. The bike only has 5300 miles on it.

Thank you Guy, Gaurav, Eric and Velocity. That was a great event and Kristen and I really appreciate the opportunity.

The film was fantastic. If you haven't see it, do so. You'll be richer for the experience.

I picked up a copy of Riding Solo.. and we can't wait to watch it today.


Thanks again!

Would like to hear your comments on it. No subtitles, which is what I recommended he do on this new one. I had the opportunity to critique/comment/make recommendations on the rough cut, and he actually used some of them.

Pissed Rider Down

In Powhatan, this afternoon.

The son of some family friends. He's about 20 or so, and was shuttling the family HD's to get state inspections done today. Apparently a cage pulled out in front of him while he was taking his mom's bike to the inspection station.

From what I've heard, he was transported to the ER for brain scans. His helmet was trashed, and he has a lot of road rash.

Hopefully, he'll be okay. He's a bright kid with a promising future.

Remember... they're all out to get you. Never let your guard down. And...

ATGATT!
