Does anybody think it's a bad idea to ride without an endorsement. And if you do it, how do you keep from getting pulled over/caught and if your against it, why?
Yes.Does anybody think it's a bad idea to ride without an endorsement. And if you do it, how do you keep from getting pulled over/caught and if your against it, why?
I used to know a guy that got so many tickets that he lost his licenses.Does anybody think it's a bad idea to ride without an endorsement. And if you do it, how do you keep from getting pulled over/caught and if your against it, why?
It's easy. If you just don't give a dang you can get away with murder.My girlfriend rode for a few years without an endorsement during her "rebel years" and not only never got a ticket but was also never stopped.
I have a friend who has a knack for scooters. He daily rides a 49cc scoot that has plates that expired in 2009. He only just recently got the registration current. Again, no issues from the police.
I rode my Buell for one night without an endorsement (but with the MSF card on hand) and I got it impounded. Cost me $700 to spring it out. It was a hard lesson to learn: Do things right the first time and good things come to those who have patience.
(You can register and insure a bike to a rider without an endorsement in this state, but when the officer pulls your plate it'll say the registered owner doesn't have an endorsement.)
How people get away with this stuff is beyond me. I'm caught the second I break any law that would cost me a big chunk of change. lol
Got it. I guess taking the class or the test is just too much trouble for some.This was a big problem in Hawaii.
The Harley-Davidson crowd, being real macho-men that didn't need no stinkin' license to ride had many chopper riders which were unlicensed.
How they accomplished this was this way, they'd buy a Harley and have another licensed Harley owner register and insure it but they would put up the money for registration and the insurance.
Then, if they got stopped, the excuse was "just taking a ride with my friend's bike, officer"
Usually got a warning and get told to get off the bike or ride it home.
However, the Police began to notice the same guy's names popping up for unlicensed riding of a motorcycle.
Solution? if they caught a guy unlicensed guy riding a Harley registered to someone else with the insurance in someone else's name, they would immediately impound the bike and ticket the rider.
It would cost the registered(?) owner anywhere from $300 to $500 to get they bike out of the impound yard.
Guys are still taking the chances and doing this yet.
Now I know that you're lying! This doesn't happen. [/sarcasm] At least not according to one member who thinks that having ridden for a long time gives one "experience" and competence in low speed maneuvers. Falling wasn't the fault of this rider in your class. It was those "silly" and "stupid" cones that were responsible.Had a Harley guy in my MSF class, been riding for 20 years with no license.
He had a hard time in class unable to do the weave, low speed turns and when he fell with the bike in the "box", he quit and walked out of the class cussing and cursing the class.
I wonder if he's still out there riding with no license.
You ask a stupid question and you'll probably get a stupid answer.Cool thank you all for your input, I just had a stupid question and thank you all for letting me know it was a stupid question. FYI, I have all the right paperwork to be on the road I was just wondering stupid what if's.
