Why do you have to...

Why is it in PA that when you buy a bike from a dealer you have to purchase the title from the state? It seems that this is nothing more then to make money for the state. We don't need titles for dirt bikes because we can't register them to get tags anyways. I can see with 4-wheelers and their tags to ride on state lands. But I really don't understand why we need them for bikes. I think from now on I'm just going to have to buy all my stuff from out of state to avoid paying title and tax fees. Will a bill of sale from another dealer be the same in this state? :cry:

To get insurance for your bike you need a title.


How many people have put insurance on their bikes? Is it just incase it gets stolen? I know where you are at in Howard Co. I would worry about them being stolen, especially down in Columbia.

      Greetings, I am seeking an open discussion about land use and atv/motorcycle clubs in Maine. I am looking to join a club(s) that help promote responsible land use to secure and expand our use of private land. I have reached out to a few clubs but most web sites seem to be out of date or defunct. Can anyone point me in the direction of a club or individual that might be able to answer some questions? Thanks in advance.

      I just bought a trials bike to go with my two KTM enduro/trails bikes. Looking for clubs, lessons, coaching, riding buddies, etc. So hints, links, etc greatly appreciated.

      After riding enduro bikes, I picked up a used Beta two stroke trials bike today. Clearly I need lessons. Pointers and links to trials clubs in PA, or nearby states would be greatly appreciated.
