In a situation where I bought a 03 copper svs from a girl I found on Cycle Trader. Drove to get it with money down and the credit union (CU) was working on completing the drill. The problem came when the girl provided the payoff amount to the CU and wasn't getting a "payoff amount" from her lienholder. When I picked up the bike it had no license plate? I asked and she said she took them off for some reason, but I can't for the life of me remember what it was. I'm going to e-mail her right after this... Anyway, The CU doesn't get the payoff amount so that the paperwork can be finished until 2+ weeks after I've been driving the bike around my neighborhood very pissed about the situation. So then at the bank the loan officer tells me at signing that it'll be 5-7 days until I get my plates and I'm still really pissed, but at least there's a light. Weeeell, when it gets around to day 6 I give her a call. Apparently it's 5-7 days after they get the title from the time they make the payment, which takes two weeks!!!!, that I get plates. Arggghhh! So it's now been several more rides around the neighborhood and I called back at 1 week 2 days and its still not there, yeah I know it's not two weeks, but it seems like it. Sooooo, anyone ever let thereself fall into this horrible void? Any ideas how I could get some paper plates? I asked the CU and they said I have to wait.
