A lot of weird things can happen to motorcycle riders. One of the weirdest that happened to me - I'm cruising along when a cop pulls me over and asks for my registration. No problem. Then he says my bike is not registered. Of course it is I insist. I always pay my registration. Then he points to my licence tag showing that its lapsed. I always expect my registration to come in the mail and I always pay it. But it never came and it was over due. He searches and finds no record of my bike. I'm stunned. Then he calls a tow truck. They hang my carefully restored cafe bike on a sling and haul it away. The cop is sympathetic and drives me to a friends house close by and drops me off. It turns out that the DMV just completely deleted my bike from the system for no reason. There was no record that it ever existed. I had to pay hundreds of dollars to get it out of impound and create a new title for it. It made no difference that it was entirely the DMVs fault. Its no wonder that I have a bit of an attitude towards the DMV (and authority in general).
