Glad I'm 22. Oh wait, that's unnecessary in AL anyway.

Now, who thinks that they should do this for every rider under 21 in every state? Really, if you hold a M class permit and have had it less than 3 years (no matter the age) you should be issued the "special" tags for at least three years. I'd like to know who to avoid when riding Deal's Gap. Wouldn't you?

I think they should introduce a compulsory day-glo neon vest for all riders, with register plate on the front and in the back, like they have in Colombia. This would make any bad ass chopper guy look like an overripe pizza delivery boy.

Any state that allows you (at age 14) to obtain a motorcycle license before you can legally drive a car should have the highest insurance rates in the nation. But that's not the case is it?

Sounds like a good idea to me. With todays traffic densities and inattentive cagers visibility is pretty crucial. Coupled with their loud pipes you'd see and hear them coming a mile away.

Default Here's a whacky idea:

How about the motorcycle license test being made slightly harder than just a couple of circuits of a parking lot? That might save some lives huh?



Oh and let's try to keep litre bikes out the hands of anyone under 25.



Watch out Ralph Nader.

Why stop there? How about special license plates for EVERYONE under the age of 21? Those guys/gals are the most dangerous drivers out there. Let's get the second most dangerous group of drivers too. All drivers over 70 have to have special plates.. and a big sign on the roof of their car that sez, "Danger. Old Coot Behind The Wheel."

The latter may be the best idea yet. If you haven't done it yet just wait till you have to take the keys away from a parent.
