calling all Alabamans!!!

Is there anyone living in or from Alabama that can explain a few things to me regarding bike purchase, tags, liscense, etc?

Here's what I am wanting to know:

1) Why does the state of Alabama not issue the little vinyl dealer tags on new motorcycles? ...and is it just bikes or cars too?

2) Why does the state give only 10 days to secure your new tag?

3) What is the procedure for acquiring a motorcycle permit/license in that state?

Note: regardles of how crazy these questions may seem, please, humor them and provide me with some insight anyway. My riding partner & I were having a discussion last night and just wanted some definitive info. Thanks!

Not sure if you're into reading up on it, but look here:

It should answer most of your questions, or at least give you a number you can call.
