"Do you want to keep that M?"

I have had the M for almost 30 years now... I don't know if this has happened to any of you, but the last 3 times that I have had to renew my license (different locations in TX) they have always asked me: "Do you want to keep that M?" It absolutely irritates me.... how about: "Did I friggin' ask you to remove the M from my license you dimwit ????

Excuse the rant, I need to go riding I guess....

Cheers!

Experience: 4 years

Bike(s):
2007 Kawasaki ZX6R









Started riding in Ď05 or so, in AZ. Took the course. Broke bike. Never went to the DMV to get my endorsement. Sold bike. Moved to TX about 3 years ago. Bought my current bike. Took course. Waited until the course certificate ALMOST expired. Finally got my paperwork in order this year. . Always carried insurance, and registration.

I was pulled over twice in TX, never in AZ, while I lacked my endorsement. Once in Pasadena, and once in Pearland. Didnít notice the cop behind me in Pasadena, when I spotted another sport bike ahead, and took off to catch him. Consequences of ear plugs+small bar end mirrors. He caught me when I stopped for a red light. Never even noticed him behind me. Said he had me at 82 in a 50. Out of state license, with no endorsement.

Got a warning.

In Pearland, I was playing, in a spirited fashion, in traffic. Spotted the officer this time, but he saw me before I could burn off enough speed. He ended up behind me, and hit the lights. Again, out of state license, no endorsement. Said he pulled me over because my plate was illegally mounted. Itís not.

Got a warning.

Now that Iím nice and legal, I got caught today. Just speeding around with a little Civic. Officer said we were doing at least 100. Entirely possible, as I wasnít really paying attention to the speedo. We both got pulled over. Officer tried to get us to say we were racing each other, and admit speeds. I really wanted to explain power to weight ratios, and how a stock Civic vs a 600cc super sport isnít what Iíd consider a ďraceĒ, but I kept my mouth shut, and was rewarded with a cite for unsafe speed, greater than 80. Coulda been a lot worse.

Iíve been pretty happy with my encounters with law enforcement. But I really need to find a nice little naked bike for street duty, and convert this ZX6R to track duty before it convinces me to do something Iíll regret.

I asked the same question last time I went in. Was told that since there is an extra fee to renew the M, they are not allowed to assume you want it. It is up to you to tell them you want it renewed. At least they asked you. In many cases, the M is simply removed and people don't discover it's gone until some time later. When that happens, back to square one to get licensed again.
