I got pulled over on my 'ped today.

"I was crusing over to Decepticon HQ to go riding, when I heard the characteristic ""bloop!"" from behind me.<p>So I pulled over, and the cop seemed pretty interested in the moped. He asked me some questions, like ""How old is this?"" and ""Where did you get it?"" I told him I just got it and that I was planning on getting it registered today.<p>Anyways, he took about 20 minutes with my liscense while I hung out on the side of the road, feeling dumb. He then told me it was illegal to ride a motor vehicle on the road without registration. I played dumb and told him that I thought mopeds were subject to the same laws as bicycles, because they had pedals. <p>He let me go without a ticket, thankfully, and told me to walk my moped home. And I did (uphill the whole way) and got home exhausted.<p>Another radical moped adventure!"

"i had a feeling that you had been pulled over actually... we were waiting behind hq, fixing jasons bike..."

I didn't want to stand you guys up like I did...

"I tried calling after I walked my bike home, but nobody answered and I figured you just went riding without me.<p>No big deal.<p>But today I went to register my moped, and they gave me a bunch of crap about finding out how much my moped was worth. I told them that someone gave it to me and I fixed it, and they kept telling me that I had to find out how much it was worth. Anyways. <p>Truth, Justice, Mopeds.<p>Eric<p>: i had a feeling that you had been pulled over actually... we were waiting behind hq, fixing jasons bike...<p>"

: and they kept telling me that I had to find out how much it was worth. Anyways. <p><br>the trick there is to tell them that it is worth $15. you pay tax on it based on what it's worth - so the less you tell them the better.<p>simon

They didn't let me register.

"The lady that ""helped"" me was incredibly mean. Evil, even. Like Selma from the Simpsons. Oh well. The Secretary of State must not be the best place to work, eh?<p>She didn't let me register. I'm just going to make up some information and register next week.<p>"

Re: They didn't let me register.

"there are more than one secretary of state offices around, if you continue to have difficulties with that particular one. good luck."
