    Yes but Grandma and Grandpa can drive an RV that is bigger than a greyhound bus and tow a trailer on a regular license with no enforcement. Then they can slap on a FARM Tag or even a ANTIQUE tag and never get it inspected. All of this effort to get this guy on a bike.

    Do motorbikes have to obey the same speed limits as other motor vehicles.? I am not sure. My observations say they can go a lot faster, and can weave in and out of traffic without signals. But, that may not be the case. I am confused.
