I'll definitely be getting a temp tag, if PA will issue me one.

I have no truck or trailer.

I would rather not inconvenience my wife (and young daughter) by making her drive all the way out there and back if I can avoid it. I'm calling that Plan B...

Make a date of it. Your odds of some beaurocratic fuck up even with the power of attorney are pretty high. The simplest solution is bring the wife.

Where in PA are you going? There's stuff to do all over here if you know where to go. You have to spin it a little like "We're taking a nice trip to ....falls or whatever and we happen to be switching motorcycles and babe you might have to sign your name three times and then we'll stop by this amazing restaurant, unload the kid on a babysitter" Hell the legal fees you'll save from the notary will pay for a hotel and some private time.

Wilkes-Barre is where this is happening. I'm calling an auto tag service there tomorrow to see what they need. If they recommend a fix for this, it should help to deal with the same person when I get there. If there is no simple fix, I'll have to rent a truck and talk my wife into a trip...

Around Wilkes Barre you have some nice hiking at Ricketts Glenn State Park, there are a lot of places to eat around there as well. Ricketts Glen is beautiful and has a 7 mile loop trail which is easy to moderate and is coveted by photographers who come to take pictures of the many beautiful water falls.

i 'm assuming you'll come via 84 so you'll be passing through Milford which is at the top of the beautiful Delaware Water Gap.

Just bring the wife and don't make it a chore!

Use the other guy's plate and date the trade for the next business day after you get home. Until then, you're just swapping bikes and there's nothing wrong with that.

I called the PA title transfer office that we intend to use. They say that they'll give me a temp. tag, and that if my wife signs the title at home before I bring it to them, that is fine because CT doesn't require titles to be notarized.

Well, that seems easy. Much ado about nothing!

Now, to slap a new front tire on the Concours...
