Really, Alex, you're scraping the bottom of the barrel here.
Instead of exploding with buttrage over being contradicted by two trolls and a newspaper article, you could have made yourself useful and provided more useful information for the OP. But instead you demonstrated once again that you can't write a coherent
paragraph to save your life, so you contradicted yourself, saying:
in Beijing, on the contrary, laws about motorcycles are very clearly defined ... Turns out the cops dont even know the law, lol, in China - who would have thought? rofl.
And completely missed the point I'd been trying to make from the very beginning (hello, visas) that discretionary enforcement complicates the law in China, among other factors including frequent changes to the legal code and limits on the number of new vehicle
registrations awarded each year. I see no mention of that in your lame layman's analysis upstairs. Christ. Do you even live in this city?
You can't parse enforcement discretion from legal codes. You're from a country with a common law system, wherein a law that is never enforced might as well not exist.
When challenged to provide
specific information about the registration process
yaaawwn....for a nominal service fee, the dealer does this for you (the process), just like everywhere else in the world.
Terrible advice, by the way, as the dealer has every incentive to assure a customer that vehicle registration laws are "very clear"--he wants to sell you shit, after all. And this might explain why the police towed your bike, if you left it up to an agent
or third party.
Perhaps your papers were 差不多OK, but they decided to let the matter slide when they realized they were dealing with an obnoxious and vindictive foreigner. I honestly don't know, because you annoyingly vague and obscurant, and whenever you are contradicted
or pressed for specific information, you respond with insults.
And before you throw another tantrum, do remember to try and make yourself useful to the OP. Other than responding to you, I've at least made an attempt to stay relevant (give or take one wheel). You, on the other hand, haven't offered anything than the
flimsy guarantee of your dubious understanding.
And BTW, if anyone wins this thread it's Scooter, as in spite of his gaffe, at least he provided another source of information. Other than HURR DURR BLOOMBERG IS WRONG AND YOU ARE ALL STUPID AND UNMANLY, you don't seem to bring a whole lot to the table.
