    Your logic is flawed.

    You can only ride one bike at a time.

    If you really want to shove it up the man's ass, why not just have 1 current tag, and put it on the bike you are riding that day?

    Me, I'm anal enough that knowing my plate isn't registered to my bike makes me nuts.

    Make sure all your bikes are over 25 years old and just get 1 historic tag. :rofl

    I also have a lot of good medical, legal, marriage, and financial advice. :rofl

    You missed the part where it's not really what I want. If it were a DR350SE or a 96 or newer XR250L at that price it would have been relocated to my garage yesterday morning.

    Those were my exact thoughts when I first saw the pics. :lol3

    For you license plate lovers.

    My stepson just got nailed for a expired plate this past weekend. Car impounded and just under $500 in fees and court costs will be able to go get new stickers.

    To me, for the $250 up front is a bargain compared to what he dealt with and the insurance rates that may go with it.

    But think of all the horsepower those stickers give it.

    huh? what else was he doing? I got popped for expired tags on a plow truck (commercial tags expired in Jan, my birthday is in Sept and a salt spreader was covering the tag so I kinda forgot) last year and it was a $70 fine and have a nice day. Hell, i got smacked by Ontario PD (sometimes notorious for being jerks) a few years back in a VW Jetta that wasn't in my name, with expired tags from a 89 mustang (in my name) and still just got the $70 ticket.

    I actually looked into getting a dealer license so I could do this with dealer plates. County or state, don't remember, said they wouldn't approve me because I did not have a dedicated service space, or something to that effect at my current location. Something about signage was also a problem. When I get less busy, I may look into it again, as I still seem to be accumulating vehicles.

    That's been pretty much my experience as well, though the last time it was $60. Got to be more than just the plate going on here for that much money.

    That dealer tag thing is shaky ground. I am a silent partner in a car lot and am getting a dealer license of my own next year (as long as the property we are buying doesn't fall through), and there are a bunch of regulations around D tags. We had to jump through a ton of hoops to get licensed and the BMV does random inspections to make sure you are meeting all their rules (we got a nastigram for grass growing through cracks in the blacktop..)

    D tags are supposed to only be for transporting vehicles from lot to lot or for test drives, everything else is technically not allowed, and you REALLY don't want to be caught with a dealer plate on a vehicle that is in a person's name and not a dealership's. Most authorities are lenient, but I got popped by a trooper on 71 by Lodi for running on a D tag, I was in a car that was titled in the lot's name, but we were running up to pick up titles and I was dumb enough to tell the trooper that. I wouldn't want to have to answer too many questions about why you were riding on public land with one, sounds like a good way to get hassled.

    Who knows the roads NE of Newark off 79? I was roaming around there looking for a house yesterday right as dusk and those seem like some fun roads. I know there were a few white knuckle moments in my 3/4 ton truck on the hills and corners.....

    I'm considering doing a black friday anti shopping ride, I have a fun little route I've been working on putting together, novice material, there are a few sorta challenging parts depending on how greasy it is and 2 creek crossings, but nothing really hairy and bypasses around them. Supposed to be nice and in the 50's.

    Know them all very well...had property by Reform when I was younger, and I've ridden them all on the bike. I would be down for a Friday ride....I sure as hell ain't standing in line to buy crap with angry people.

    Hidden Springs is open tomorrow and in your general direction. Looks like it's $15 to ride there.

    Anyone else? Anywhere else?

    FWIW, my tires are not great.

    Well, I figure being there by 11am will let it warm up enough so I can just ride over. Besides I love the odd looks I get riding the 950se down the streets of Springfield. :lol3
