So the kid bought himself a little step through. 49cc E-Ton Beamer. Has twin headlights with high and low beam, turn signals, stop and tail lights and will prolly do about 35 mph with him on it. With my fat a55 it only does about 28.

I got it running today and we'll title a tag it tomorrow. So I go to Progressive dot com to see how much it's going to cost to insure it. I put the absolute minimum coverage I could get on it.

The end result; $110.00 DECREASE in premium for the term. Motorcycle policy went from $70 a month down to $50 a month for ADDING a vehicle.

Just to insure one of my bikes costs me $31 a month. if I insure two, $27 a month. With all three on the policy, a whole whopping $21 a month. So it is actually cheaper for me to keep the GL1200 on the policy even though it has a blown motor. Maybe with the savings, I might be able to save enough to buy another motor. Nah, I'll just spend the savings in gas riding one of the other two. I ask my insurance rep why the decrease every time I add a bike to the policy. He said that motorcycles are considered recreational vehicles and not ridden all the time (he doesn't know me very well). Since I am the only insured rider, there is no way I can ride any two at one time.

On another forum I frequent (computers), one guy with a very nice (expensive) car found his insurance went way up after his daughter totaled her car. They figured she would be driving his occasionally. He found it cheaper to buy her a used car then to make the higher insurance payments.

Here in Arkansas, if it's less than 50cc's, no tags or D.L. required.
And yes, they are allowed on the street.
