I don't want to alarm anyone...BUT... I was talking with a sales guy at AD Farrows in Columbus the other day. He told me that the police in Ohio are going to start running the plates on bikes they see on the road next year to make sure the operator is licensed. Apparently in Ohio 6 in 10 motorcyclists are operating without a license. Perhaps someone out there may know if this is true or not? Is this standard operating procedure in the state you are in?
