Cut the scooter references out and just call it what it is - an automatic motorcycle.

Those Kalifornia law makers really know how to eff-up a motorcycle. That can hanging out on the right side of the bike is an abomination!

One suggestion going forward, MO: I'd like to hear information on the maintenance intervals and/or service costs. This is often overlooked. I realized how important that factor was when chosing my Uly over the Ducati Multi, after answering a Buell follow-up survey a couple of months back. Just my $0.02.

Did they mount the Givi bags backwards on purpose? Wierdest thing I ever saw.

I thought noobs and scooter graduates were going to buy the new VFR 1200 automatic.

The good thing about the evap can is that an owner can easily toss it in the s#@t can! Service costs? We don't pay anything! 8-)

Will the "Green Police" pull you over and give you a ticket if you don't have the can installed? I bet, in Cali, they would.

Before I gave up my inspectors license I knew all the rules. In NY any motor vehicle without the factory installed devices present wouldn't pass inspection, effectively prohibiting you from legal operation. I think now they actually have to work, at least enough for the engine light not to come on or have recently been reset.

I think it would be highly unlikely a SoCal cop would bust you for that. It's too easy for them to make money handing out speeding and loud exhaust tickets to bother caring about that. That said, I wouldn't rule out that there's some ****head who would. Vehicle inspections, that's another story. But for that, the evap can can be reinstalled.
