That was a suggestion to mollify the fascisti. Myself I don't care about the wheelies and shyt. The cops can stay in the donut shops as far as I'm concerned.

I am a rider with over 40 years of riding experience on many different motorcycles. I also have an eight year old son. He has expressed a desire to start riding motorcycles. With in the next year or so I will probably buy him a 50cc dirt bike and teach him the basics of riding. In a couple of more years he will advance to a 125cc bike if he wants too. By the time he is able to get a motorcycle license I may let him get a small street bike. I will do this because I love him and care about him. What I do not want is more government mandated horse sh!t rammed down his throat. What ever happened to PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY? Have we become a nation of mewling helpless Eloi that need the governmental Morlocks to tend us like sheep? I personally will be happy if nary another single law is past for eternity. I certainly do not wish for an increasingly draconian society for my children and grandchildren to live in.

I said this a week ago. If you cannot display a valid m class endorsement then you cannot register the bike.

"Giving squidly a ticket for every instance of reckless driving would take a heck of a lot of cops, judges etc. which would call for raising taxes."



I disagree with that statement. The whole reason for giving the ticket in the first place is revenue generation. Thank God I can get a ticket, get supervision and send my check to the DMV, and away I go without even having to show up at court.

Slap him real hard first. If he still wants to ride, teach him well.



I was kidding. Good post man.

Default Re: One other simple thing: Actually REQUIRE a liscence...

As an employee and MGR of a bike shop may I make a comment?: That's stupid. 1- it would disrupt new bike sales across the country 2- some people are smart enough to trailer the "new" bike so they can use it in MSF courses and 3- sometimes spouses buy presents for one another and if the buyer is not licensed then the transaction will not go through.

In short, new bike sales cannot be effected if this rules change. the sales industry would freak and be opposed to the change.

Tiered licensing is the topic of the day yet again. I think it is funny that all those with energy behind the idea of tiered licensing know it would be unlikely to apply to them. So why not?



I doubt it would accomplish much myself. Just more nanny state stuff, without knowing the real extent of the problem. All "feel-good" laws do is promote contempt for the law.
