Actually, it says that if your race your STi (or even drive it in a way that Officer Friendly doesn't particularly like because it's his time of the month) then you can lose your STi just like you lose your bike.



I agree with you about the DUI thing. It's funny. More people are killed by drunk driving than by handguns but I have to pass a background check and wait to buy a handgun... Let alone a 50 cal...

How do you know that this issue was foisted on us by liberals? Most seizure laws that I am familar with have their origins in war on drugs that originated back in the 80's with the Regan administration which, the last time I checked, was not widely considered a bastion of liberal ideology.



In the current ra ra cops and firemen are your only defense against the forces of evil mode in which we find ourselves we fed the line that the authorities need extraordinary power to restrict our liberties to protect our precious freedoms (al la the USA Patriot act)! Again, not a paradigm widely championed by liberals.



So where are you getting your information pard, besides conservative talk radio?



This is not a liberal or conservative issue, it is a civil liberties issue and unless you are a libertarian you have no high ground to claim here. Libverals and conservatives are, unfortunately, competing for the bonehead cup when it comes to protection of civil liberties in our society.

It's what they deserve after not voting in Gary Coleman as Governor.

You know Martin, if you stick your head out of your compound like this, somebody is going to take a shot. Make sure the dogs have the perimeter secured before getting careless! LOL

well, i don't know, but i wouldn't be at all surprised to learn that LA isn't the only place with laws like that on the books. This stuff started, like Col. Hackworth stated, with the War on Drugs allowing seizure of your car, house, boat, etc.



Sure it's unconstitutional but how many guys who get their gsxrs seized are going to have the time/money to contest...



blaming it on "liberals" makes me laugh. I didn't know we were the Law and Order guys so much...

I have a hard time NOT wheelying on my Buell XB12. No wonder they sold it to me so cheap! They knew I'd be buying a replacement soon!

Oh, nothing wrong with *owning* it; you just can't *ride* it.
