I'm living off the grid suckers!

Two of my bikes are now registered as Antiques in Virginia.

You buy the plates for the life of the vehicle.

-No property tax
-No inspections required
-No re-occurring registration fees

A 3rd bike of mine will qualify in 3 years.

How about them apples, you youngsters running around in "high technology" bikes?


Enjoy bucking up every year!

Bah haaaa haaaa haaaaaa

He forgot to mention...All though most know, His Speed3 still needs an inspection sticker and requires all the rest he mentioned above

He's still riding around on an expired sticker. On two bikes I might add

You better check the laws on one thing. (I know it's this way in Tennessee, so check the laws in your state.) In Tennessee, you cannot use a vehicle licensed as an antique as a daily driver. I want to say you're restricted to no more than ten times a year. I used to work with a guy in Knoxville who drove a '37 Plymouth to work everyday. One day the State police stopped him and ticketed him for no registration, due to the antique tags. He made the mistake of going to court and had to pay fines and court cost and registration fees for the entire time the car was registered as an antique. Several thousand $! Better check it out.

I think he is right... I think you can only use it for shows/parades and stuff like that and occasional "pleasure rides" but cant go more than 250miles from home. And if you drive it to work and back and someone catches on you can be in big trouble...

once again. VA laws suck.

I checked it out. The paperwork when registering not so clearly spells out conditions. I'm good.

"
Registering your vehicle either of these ways limits your use of the vehicle to:

1. Participation in antique car club activities, exhibits, tours, parades, and similar events.
2. Testing its operation, obtaining repairs or maintenance, selling the vehicle or trailer, transportation to and from events as described in number 1 above and for the occasional pleasure driving not to exceed 250 miles from your residence.
3. Carrying or transporting passengers, personal effects or other antique motor vehicles being transported for show purposes.

You may not, however, use your vehicle for general, daily transportation. This includes, but is not limited to, driving to and from work."

I make adjustments before I go out every single time, so I am testing the operation.

I can dig that. I enjoy a good law bending once in awhile to. :001_smile:

Well........ you are aware of the law. If you are on the way to work and the cops sees you going more than once... Good luck with the 'I was just making adjustments' argument.

I went through this will my '53 Merc. After multiple discussions, I decided the penalties and fines for a guilty conviction were nowhere near worth it. And yes, I worked on the car daily. It was a rolling project.

I also learned by having such a unique car, the 'beat officers' notice a lot more than I ever gave them credit for.

Isnt that one that you can fight in court though?

I mean unless the officer pulls you over again and again and repeatedly documents that it was in fact you passing him everyday on the way to work.

What business does the government have telling you what you can and can not ride your bike for?

I drive within the speed limits and none even bat an eye at me, where ever I go. Fortunately or unfortunately for me, I live in neighborhoods where the Police have to make a choice. It's kind like, should we go shake down the guy selling cocaine in front of the 7-11 or get the guy with motorcycle antique plates.

How about the guy on the motorcycle with antique plates that is selling cocaine in front of the 7-11?

It's better to have loved and lost than live with the psycho for life!

The government controls the roads and taxes.
The government offers special tags (antique) tags that relieve you of the taxes provided you only use the car/bike for specific purposes.

People forget... things like driving are priviledges, not rights.
