and Brandy, I'm sure you made the correct decision for that kid. as most young guys, he probably wanted the bike just so he could "show off or compete with his friends" (no, not racing). I have had to refuse to sell a couple bikes to people for the same reason - it's one of those "you're gonna appreciate this one day" kind of things.
Negative plate stays with a motorcycle, there are other ways to cya.

If you were saying that the plate should stay with the bike, I would disagree. Unless I know the buyer, I will be keeping my plates moving forward. Yes, there are other ways to cya but do those and keep the plate is being very thorough. They really would have to go to the tax office in order to ride the bike.

I found it odd, but when I bought my wife a new van recently, the sales lady
went out and removed our old plates off the van and the registration and gave them to us. That was a first for me.

I still remember the lecture I got from a guy who was selling me a bone stock 1973 Datsun 240z (in 200*), telling me about how it wasn't a slouch, and can get you in trouble, bla bla bla. I was buying it so I didn't have to drive my V8 S10 all the time. He seemed to be very impressed with the Z, or was trying some type of reverse logic selling.

Nope. You can ride on the streets unlicensed all you want. Though illegal.
You have to take the MSF to get your license though.

I offer fair warnings but in the end it is their choice. Our 650r is going to a couple that we need to deliver the bike to Wednesday. One of the guys rides a scooter, his partner(the one its bought for) is taking the course Saturday. Wish them the best of luck.
I can't wait to see two guys on your ol Hyosung cruising the street.

Sorry but I'm taking pics!

I remember that, so sad, and really no ones fault, just a freak accident.

That's a lot to tippy toe! How tall are you?!

Hope that kid doesn't let his ego get the best of him..
