Maybe a stupid question at this time, but I am confused, first time today too, but I just got up 15 mins ago. But....if Indiana and Maryland aren't recognizing the SS as a motorcycle, does that mean that the rest of us with legally registered SS's from other states can't ride in these two states? According to the AMA, both states "Accept Motorcycle Endorsement From Other States". Any ideas?
It is not a 'driver's license' issue but a legal vehicle one. This may very well affect owners driving the SS through those states. This could be a BIG problem. I'm sure that this will be worked out but if units are sold in KY and stopped in IN until this is resolved, there will be a lot of problems!

I have DIRECT information concerning the problem of Indiana...... But what about Maryland? DOES ANYONE KNOW THAT THE SS HAS NOT BEEN APPROVED FOR SALE OR REGISTRATION THERE???

Not sure what is happening in Maryland. Could be totally unrelated to this topic so I will be concentrating on Indiana alone.

Great, I DO hope this all gets straightened out immediately for all those concerned. Especially those of you who are being penalized because of "bureaucratic BS". Best of luck my friend!!!

Nobody in maryland has one yet, and my dealer in wv does not have any either
There are posts concerning Maryland not Certifying the SS so Registration would be impossible. Indiana Dealers have been informed that Indiana has not Certified the SS and they cannot sell nor receive the SS which is a HUGE problem here. We as a group are trying to help any State that has not / will not Certify the SS to get it legal to ride in ALL STATES IN THE US!

Could it be that Indiana is the only state or is Maryland just quiet.

In Indiana the issue is the code requires that motorcycles have handle bars. There was a resolution introduced last session to look at the 3 wheeled vehicles in regards to the drivers licence. A simple fix would be having a line added to the code for 3 wheeled vehicles allowing them to have a steering wheel. They must have missed this when they approved the T-Rex and Stallion. Don't expect the email and letter thing to work! Get out and personally discuss this with your state representatives. Talk in a language they understand.$$$! They do not care that you cannot buy a SS,but they do care that they are loosing revenue and the State economy may be loosing out as well when the dealers do not expand. Sugar coat your story. Exaggerate the amount of money that will not be injected in to the economy by the expansions that will not happen.
