Biknut, thanks for responding. I spent over an hour at Texas Transportation Code - Texas Attorney Resources - Texas Laws
and I think I can do this if I approach the bike as a moped. It amounts to a couple of fees a written test (no practical, it seems) etc. Not, the big deal that I was afraid it was.
About Addison: I remember Addison...loved it there. I probably spent a little too much time at Carson's Palace and strangely enough, at the Bent Tree Grill. I used to fly out of Addison airport back in the days when I was a flight instructor.
