Driving is a Privilege , this brings new meaning to that phrase.Here in Canada, I could be dropped off at a dealership, with my full gear, walk in, pick out a bike, buy it using a credit card, call my insurance, have the temporary insurance emailed to the dealership, while the dealer is getting plates, and about 3 hours later be riding home on a new bike, in fact I could have taken a train from another Province, hired a cab to the dealer ( I would suggest to prearrange a couple days ahead) and never see the dealer again.
I wish it were so simple here.
All government agencies, no matter what for, have innumerable back log of paperwork. Mostly because no one trusts anyone else, so everything is in triplet, quadtriplet, biblet, zillionlet, etc... Many things are done on paper first before even put onto an antiquated computer system, worked on by a person who has a break every ten minutes for a snack, a pee, another snack, getting water, yet another snack....and all of this before lunch.
To give you an idea of the problem. Last year the government outsourced their number plate manufacturing etc to a company, god knows where, and they ended up with thousands upon thousands of plate numbers, but they could not give out the plate, because they were in no order and the paperwork was of course in the same state of affairs.
Anyway, I digress again. I just have to sit and look at my bike parked. Hopefully by the time I get my aftermarket parts come through from the USA and UK, I'll have my paperwork ready for riding.
