& by the time you add in all the points brought up in this post you have a 3" thick book of legislation with this exception, that excepion, this case, & that case & for what? Buying a motorcycle.
& it will not do a a bit of good except further burden the common sense, law abiding citizen.
You have to have a motorcycle license to drive a bike right? So if you ride a bike without one you are breaking the law. So if we add another law it will keep people from breaking the first one? No. The same law breaker will break two & the poor schmuck trying to follow the law has yet another hoop to jump through.
If you have a licence you have passsed some form of written or driving instruction to get it. Enough, call it good, its in Darwin's hands from there.
It wont stop Jonny Silverspoon's dad from buying the bike in his name on his M licence then turning over the keys to little Jonny & have him fast become a grease spot.
It wont stop Paul Squidster when he takes the class & drives a CB125 around in the parking lot of the local library for two afternoons, gets his shiny MSF ID, thinks he is the next Hayden, & goes down to sign for that brand new R1 as anything less will simply not do. Squidster will then recall the mastry of the CB125 he had in class & then flip his new R1 backward while attempting a wheelie to impress his girlfriend who may or may not be on the back in flip flops & shorts.
Not to mention this opens the door to the dealer becoming liable for the actions of the buyers they sell to. I can hear the attorneys already---you should not of sold to him, her or that dog...What happens when the dealer ok's a licence only to find out later in the court summons they just received it was a fake ID & the idoit killed himself on the new bike they were just sold. The dealer is responsible the court summons says.....
