Impound tips?

My son got his R1 impounded in not the smartest way but at least he didn't end up in the pokey. (120 in a 40, no nothing as far as legal paperwork)

He got all the tickets they could give him, for pretty much,.... everything. I called and surprisingly nice lady told me he could get the bike with the signed title, since of course he hadn't registered it.

Anyone dealt with the impound process and be willing to share any tips? I'm hoping they'll release it to him but expect them to hash him over his incomplete paperwork.

Appreciate your experiences and tips!

I sold a bike serval years ago and the new owner did not register it.

The impound lot will send a certified letter to the legal owner currently on file with the DMV, this is the notify the owner that the vehicle is impounded and what is needed to get the vehicle released. They needed title or registration with the owners name on file and an ID. Also a whole bunch of money about $400 for 3days in the impound. So I had to go there to get the vehicle released for the new owner. hope that helps.

Only 2 impound experiences here
scenario 1 was after selling a car and the new owner not registering. I sold my POS to someone in desperate need of a car....got busted for who knows what, called me to help get it out of impound somewhere off of Navigation. The female accomplice of the not so no nice guy (who ended up in jail) yelled at me almost the entire time I was there to help...except I wasn't footing her bill and no one had keys to the car. Turned out I found a stash of needles under the center console as I went looking for the spare key I used to hide when I owned the car. I locked the door and walked away.

Moral of the story: Don't sell your vehicle to people who are bat crazy and likely irresponsible.

scenario 2: read here if you like, lol

https://www.motohouston.com/forums/s...=truck+impound

moral of the story:
Never selling another vehicle/motorcycle again without taking plates....I don't give a if seller thinks I'm a douche for doing so.

ALWAYS file VTR form with state within 30 days of sale-REALLY glad I took this step.

Ouch! His sport bike riding days are over. Once insurance company gets wind of it his insurance is going to be through the roof. Probably a good thing if he is doing 120 in a 40. LOL. The best thing to do when clocked at 120 is to accelerate to 187.

Appreciate the tips! He's going to try and pick it up Friday. I'll post afterwards how that went,....

"brandontx - Probably a good thing if he is doing 120 in a 40"
Unfortunately, but this is about right. At least until he learns some restraint.

I mean there's always the "sorry officer, I was going so fast I didn't even see you" line if they somehow do catch up to you.

So, he waltzes in, shows ID, signed title from the po, pays and they let him walk it out. He gears up and rides off.
I thought for sure they were going to jam him on insurance.

Ah well I'll try to get him to take a class with me and get his paper work straight. Prob won't listen but I'll keep trying,...

Appreciate tips and experiences!



Here's a question: He always open carries a Kimber 1911 10mm. I wonder if, seeing his ltc, the cop let him off (cmon 120 in a 40?)/the impound lot didn't give him a hard time? Any thoughts on that?

At least his wreckless driving ticket is pretty cheap in Texas. Texas is pretty cool about speeding. We do have 85 mph zones afterall. When my brother visited from Indiana he couldn't believe it. Pretty sure insurance companies view it like a DUI though. Going to sting for a looooong time. At least he got his bike back. Tell him to ride the out it before his insurance renews. Lol.
