This law is making my 76 Shovel look better ever day. I'm lining up a 66 Shovel for a decent price, and may get it soon. Then I can jion the real Harley riders!

Those American Chopper guys are going to be pissed. Maybe they'll build a bike in protest of this.

You must be running out of room with all those bikes. As a personal favor I'll let you store it at my house, free of charge. I'll even bob it for you.....No, don't thank me... it's what I do.....



Did the ton on my Dyna on my way to work this morning at 0-dark-30 to ring in the New Year. 110 mph, 45 degrees and raining. My annual mud check LOL. took a little longer to get there than on my Triumph but just as much fun.....

Something coal-fired, or maybe spend some of those hundreds of thousands they get for their rolling trainwrecks to develop a hi-tech oil-injection/combustion system for the exhaust so they can have something that rumbles around belching noxious clouds of jet-black smoke from their ear-splitting open pipes.........

It's the same lack of restraint that allows you to call these fellow motorcyclists @ssholes.

This really is a crock of sh|t. Laws have been on the books forever and not enforced because it would be difficult and expensive to do but it still irks me to no end that a bunch of self important bureaucrats from the EPA and the United Nations think that they know what is good for us concerning our motorcycles. Our motorcycles do not contribute to global pollution in any measurable way and to be told that I can't modify my bike infuriates me. This used to be a free country, we should start acting like it again. It just may be time for another tea party only this time it will be against the very officials that we have elected.

Kick them out starting with the UN, then Congress and the Senate.

Don't worry guys, just like you all spend so much time putting |||| and **** or @@@@ into the M|ddle 0f @ll your b@d w0rd$ so the sensorship police won't squash you, people will get around this to. Say a company comes out with a new exhaust; then get it CARB certified, or an intake, or just a k&n, all comes to the same thing.

Just like the little ricer guys. All those cars still have to pass CA emissions, and it won't be much longer before they start tailpiping our bikes too.

Boy won't that be fun. There will be a special machine, with four gas analyzers (for quad-tipped bikes), and there will only be one or two within like 400 miles of you, so you'll have to ride it there, you'll get a flat, and end up staying at some rundown motel 6 for the night, all in all your smog test runs you about $450.00 every couple years no big deal right?

ACK! That's all my bikes worth!

What, you used the word "*******" and the cencorship did not pick it. Maybe the software was U.K. origin where they use "arsehole"?

Not so fast. I just read from a car mag a "comparo" between an early ´50s chevy pick up with a recent one. They were just shy of 50 years of age difference. The new one used 50% more gas. OK so it was a V8 vs. straight six, A/C etc etc, but still. 50 years!

Plus, at that rundown motel 6, in your drunken stupor, you bonk some frequent flyer pregnant. This would handily exceed your bike´s worth, not to mention your wife´s settlement would have the bike anyway.
