Bicycle! Two wheels, the open road, funny clothes, fast guys, cruiser guys, dorks on recumbents, tandems, and some of their bikes cost more than our motorized ones...

Two roads diverged in a wood, and I
took the one less traveled by,
and that has made all the difference

Keep riding. They took your license, not your ability to ride. YMMV.

I have no idea what your circumstances are or what the laws are there that put you in this dilemma. But I can tell you having seen hundreds of folks here in similar straights that you can perpetuate your problem dramatically if you don't focus solely on getting your privileges restored. Here, if you lose your license and get caught again the suspension period increases, insurance increases, and you face increased jail time for another violation of driving while your license is suspended or revoked. (I've seen people who have added up enough penalties that they couldn't get licensed for a decade or more.) If you want advice, fix the problem, get your privileges restored, and do not take any shortcuts. The odds are stacked against you. Friendly advice from a former prosecutor. Good luck.

Focus on the weight loss and great shape you're going to be in after all that cycling.

I think I remember an inmate here installing an electric motor on his bicycle when it happened to him.

my guess is, it happened for a reason, the rest of us probably safer as a result?

stop doing whatever they wuz pissed about. your life may magically change.

Thanks for the advise guys, the bicycle is at the ready. Dont think I was a danger to anyone UNSTABLE RIDER just a source of revenue for a Government in financial crisis. Its just too easy to follow a rider around on a 1300 untill he gives it a few berries then take his hard earned wages and lifesyle away for six months . Any way the good news is a court issued Special Hardship Order that allows me to ride towork and back and drive the work vehicles . The boss had to write a statement saying _no licence = no job. more restraint and speedo checking for me in future

I lost my license back in May,not to the man tho.My license expired and I didn't realize it.I had 30 days before I had to retake the driving/riding test.I missed the dead line.Well I didn't have to wait but two weeks to get my DL.I have to wait 180 days before I can take the driving/riding test to get my MC endorsement back.Sucks major ass.I ride like a sane person and have never been pulled.So I will just roll around until my 180 days are gone and I can do the riding test.My other option is taking the MSF.I'll wait 180 days to save $125,because I'm a cheap ass bastard.
