Well, in AR apparently, the motorcycle coming street legal from the factory is no guarantee that it won't be a PITA to plate. I went round and round with the "special needs" folks at the tax office in LR for about 6 months trying to get a motorcycle title for my damn DR. THey kept insisting that it was a dirt bike.

Were you on the scene? It's tough to destroy an XR, but I managed to do it by not checking the oil.

Yes I was there... It was a great ride..luckily it didnt happen till the end..I still wish I coulda done more. Feel like an idiot, I thought we were in BV or near when I said he could limp it home. Turns out we werent even in AR yet. There was smoke and clanking.
