Greetings!

New member here, with an M998 in Louisiana. Before I placed a bid on my truck, I checked with the state motor vehicles department and got a green light for on-road registration, but three months later when I actually picked up the vehicle (broken ankle in between) I was told the state had basically changed their minds and were actually in the process of revoking all on-road registrations in the system, citing a lack of DOT compliance. I'm hearing rumors that AM General is actually behind this on a national level as they're concerned about potential liability.

Has anyone else run into this and been able to overcome it? Although I understand why AM General would be concerned, I find it hard to look somebody straight in the eye and hear them talking about safety concerns as a motorcycle whizzes by, and the general public shouldn't have to suffer for the sins of the 'stupid'. I bought my truck to be a daily driver, not a quarterly toy and parade warrior, so any insight and/or suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

Since this is my first post, hopefully 1) I put it in the right place; and 2) I'll figure out how to read and comment on replies. That said, I appreciate all the expertise and experience this board represents and look forward to your assistance.

Regards,

Hang tight till Jan and you will be good to go.

Change your location from USA as the site rules ask you location.

If you have any questions, pm and I will be glad to help. We can do lunch or maybe I can tempt you with some of my extra parts....

Good to see another member in N'Awlins :)

Thnaks!

I'll need to figure out where to set my location, and I'll take a look at the other post... I'm just down the way in New Sarpy, so we'll definitely need to get together and swap some lies!
