HUGE Complaint (Not BMW)
So, I make the LT decision, figure out how to pay for it, find the right one, buy it and take the beauty home.
And now the problem begins. Washington State requires a MC rider whose bike has a sidecar to obtain a Bike/Trike endorsement to complement a motorcycle endorsement. I purchase the bike with a Hannigan sidecar so that the bike won't "tip" thereby allowing my wife to ride with me. So I take the written test and go to schedule the riding skills test. The idiot on the other end of the call explains to me shill take my name and number so they cam call me and let me know the next bike/trike testing day. We only give the test every 2 months or so because there aren't many people taking the test.
Are they on crack? With my "bike/trike learners permit" I cannot carry a passenger on the bike or in the sidecar and I can't even ride the rig solo "during the hoursof darkness".
Does this seem right? 2 mos from now is freakin July!.
The person on the other end of the line said thy won't even consider scheduling the riding skills test until they have 2 or 3 people lined up to take the test. Looks like I will have to pay the $25 for my son and a couple other friends to take and pass the written test, schedule the riding test, nd then blow off the riding test.
