The Governator doesn't have a motorbike license

Governor of California Arnold Schwarzenegger received 15 stitches in his lip Sunday after he and his 12-year-old son were involved in a motorcycle accident near their Los Angeles home.

Schwarzenegger was riding a Harley Davidson motorcycle with his son Patrick in the sidecar when another driver backed into the street, spokeswoman Margita Thompson said in a statement.

"The governor was unable to avoid the vehicle in his path and collided with it at a low speed," she said.

Well it turns out that the Governator does not have a motorbike license. He had one in Austria prior to his arrival in USA in 1968, but never bothered to get one when he arrived here. He has not been charged as the police never attended his accident, and it seems that the CHP is saying that because the bike has a sidecar it was a 3 wheeled vehicle and he can drive it with a car license.

The fine for riding without the proper license is between $100 - $250. I wonder if Arnold will be popping down to the DMV sometime soon?
