This ^^^^. In Pa you can ride with just a permit (provided you already have a Pa license), you just can't ride at night, with a passenger or without a helmet. I know people who have been riding on "Permits" for 20 years. I guess they think it's easier to just get a permit renewed.
It depends if the Notary is "Online" or not. It took 3+ months to get my title for my KZ750 but only 2 weeks to get the title back for my Buell. The difference is the individual Notary. In some parts of Pa, the Older/Existing Notary offices can stay old school/paper until 2015, new(er) offices have to be Online already. (I don't know what constitutes Old vs Newer, the PennDOT operator I spoke to was less than helpful.
Yeah, I knew i can ride with just the permit, which is cool, but I can't ride without plates
I'm sure hoping i'm looking more like 2-3 weeks vs 3 months. *sigh* Do you have the PennDot number laying around? (I'll probably google it before you reply though, lol) If I dont see any results in the next 7-10 days I'll call them and see if I can speed up the process.
And I'll call every few days. If I gotta suffer, I'll nag them with my suffering. lol
Glad to see I aint the only one who likes to read while teachin the kids to swim.
I wish you the best of sucess. As someone who loves to tinker on bikes, I can attest that having two bikes WILL have its advantages. Such as being able to have one bike to ride while the other is tore apart for painting or what not lol
I found out that apparently, I HAVE to have the 2nd bike on the same policy as my other one. For most people, this would actually be an advantage, but for me, well, I have to deal with the Veteran's Administration, and they are telling me that I should only have one bike. Since it is my fiduciary that pays my insurance... the VA will find out.
Well, the VA can go (seventeen paragraphs of straight cussing deleted)!
I hope that it all works out for you with both bikes.
First off, thank you for your service and my apologies for having to deal with a less than adequate system put in place for our vets. My buddy is combat wounded after 2 tours in (undisclosed location) and since his mission records are "sealed" and classified, he's having a hell of a time getting help. My heart goes out to you for the hassles you have to deal with from our government.
(ok, back on topic)
Having two bikes was never my intention, of course neither was having three Jeeps, but like you said, when one needs work, at least I can still ride. My oldest son is 15 (16 in Oct) and he wants to ride. Of course my wife says hell no, but we'll see. He's a very responsible and mature 15yo. He's more grown up than I was at 25. So I'd have no problem taking him out to the old air strip and letting him have some fun in a controlled environment and if he does well there, getting him a permit and letting him go out with me occasionally. My wife doesn't see it that way. (I sense a storm brewing)
Of course he wants a wrangler as his first vehicle, and if he saves for it himself, who are we to argue?
