there will be a lot more people running unregistered bikes...just grabbing a plate off of whatever else you got and taking your chances
As I understand, you can customize as many bikes as you want to as lon as manu date is pre-2004. Provided there is a legitimate title for it in existence. Retitles will fall under the new rule sort of. Key point - Buy a bike without a title? - Bring it back to inspectable condition as in the manufacture date, have it retitled as its manu'd year, then customize it. If you customize it before retitle, it will be retitled as that year and could fall under that laws jurisdiction. If you want to buy a crate package, then you might have to learn the fine art of finagling around.aj650 said:i'm not sure, my ride got totalled under a side of dino ribs...
but i'd imagine it's the same deal.
I'm not 100% on the rules, my ultra-ADD kicks in when I read, any clarification is welcome.
Hey just wait till the 2008 Harley's come out. Plan is no standard fasteners used on bikes. No hex heads, no allen heads, slotted, torx, nothing. Everything requires special Harley tools.Django said:the aftermarket is HUGE. Does Harley have THAT much influence?
This is great. Let's kill off one of the prospering American industries so MORE people can barely afford to eat.
Corporations have more power than governments. Don't think its true - ask someone fired for smoking in their own home. No money, no rights. Corporate Global Economy is the New World Order. Think its a good idea - third world countries will cease to exist and become oversized company towns. What could have been a good idea, can never be now.BigDdy31 said:And yet people still have the balls to scoff when I remind them that corporations are trying to take over the world and succeeding. Remember fellas, revolutions aren't just for engines.
They did with Flattrack racing!!!! In the late 80's early 90's, the Hondas were killing them. Harley got themselves into it, and made "RULES" that once again put Honda's down, then Honda bailed and its dominated by Harleys again.Django said:Does Harley have THAT much influence?
Absolutely.Or, maybe they just hate us 'cause we got all the pussy in high school.
You're kidding, right? Like Witworth, only Harley? thats just down right rediculous. It'll kill the bolton market on new bikes.ol_scratch said:Hey just wait till the 2008 Harley's come out.

I'd rather move to Mexico than Cali.Django said:You know, fastsporty has been after me to move to Cali ever since he moved there. He's relentless in his pursuit. But the more and more of this type crap that I find out about here and there makes me glad I'm staying here, cold winters or not. I think I'll just continue to visit.
Only difference was Whitworth wasn't really a single corporate driven move, it was an industry standard. But no I'm not kidding. What it will do is require any bolt-on company who wants to continue supporting HD, to register for license to use the the special fasteners. Then any bolt on stuff will have to go thru a HD dealer. Of course, you could make home made tools to work with. But that could be a tantamount undertaking.Bugman said:You're kidding, right? Like Witworth, only Harley? thats just down right rediculous.
