I didn't have anyone question me when I did it, I did have turn signals, horn, head light (just one setting no high and low), tail light and brake light (although only switched on rear brake). It was very quick turn around. Although when I got my licenses renewal last September it said I had a problem and needed to call. When I called got a guy and asked him what was going on. He said something like that I had a gray bond and they used to not accept them but they do now. I had never gotten my title. He said it was fine now and fixed it so I could renew on line and in 4 days got my title in the mail.

I say call back and get a hold of someone else. Just tell them the bike is street legal. Not sure why they would want proof. They may have had some complaints or someone abusing the system. If it meets all the requirement of being street legal there should be nothing they can do about it.

Thanks! I feel like it's Christmas all over again! First a printer, now a chair. Now I can spend my money on more important things like motorcycle stuff... and beer!

Let me know when/where I can pick it up. I'm off for the next 4 days (starting at 5:00 pm tomorrow) so I can get it anytime.

So i called them today. The lady said they will not do a bond title on a dirt bike because there not street legal. I told her i need the title so i can get it street legal. She told me there is no way they would do that. So i said a lot of people do this all the time. Then she told me to send pictures of the bikes with blinkers and all the stuff to make it street legal. So i asked for her boss. Of course she is not in today. So going to call back tomorrow. From what i have been told all that is needed in AR to make it street legal is a tail light right?

Any ideas of stuff to tell them tomorrow. I sure am not a fan of the goverment. So much red tape to do something so easy.

Well that sucks. Everyone I talked to said that nobody checks whether or not you got all the "legal" stuff. That's the po po's job, should they decide to pull you over. Get us updated how this works out because I'm right behind you.

Doc is the man that can help you straightened out and get your bikes ready to be registered. He is a bit preoccupied right now though.

To me the person did not seam to know what they were talking about. Hoping tomorrow when i talk to someone higher up i can get a better answer. i just dont see why a picture of it would help them. i could just get some off the net and email them to her. I dont want to dump the money into the street legal stuff unless i can get the title
