As one of the people who would potentially be testing you for that endorsement, I can say no you wouldn't make it long on my range. How would you like to stare at your bright lights while trying to monitor your ability to minimally operate a motorcycle? I'd ask you to dim them, then notice that the bulb is out. Obviously not a legal bike.

NSDT; riding around with your brights on pisses off the people in boxes. It makes me want to bounce a pop bottle off their head.

In 2005 I took my test in Fircrest on my old trashed 1967 trail 90. Heck it didn't even have blinkers.

I killed the competition. A guy on a big Harley with huge side bags bit it in the weave thru the cones test. The tester would not let me share my bike with him.

WTF are you trying to avoid here?

it's a headlamp bulb for fuck's sake and you have 3 days to find a replacement

Maybe you shouldn't be riding motorcycles.

Lighten up Francis!!! I never do today anythung that can be stalled till just before I need to leave. lol It's an excercise program really, I run run my ass off to get things done in time to leave an hour late.

If I have an out of state registered bike, and an out of state standard DL, can I take the WA test and get the motorcycle license in WA or does it have to all start with a new WA DL so that the motorcycle part can just be added as an endorsement?

Weighing my options.

Thanks.
