My concern exactly. I've been on the wrong side of that argument a few times (i.e. the side where I'm right, the cop really is out of line, but we're in the middle of nowhere and it's his little empire that I've invaded so I'm still wrong just because he says so) and there no scenario that ever ends well. Best case was when my wife is around to defuse my irritation before I got myself in more trouble by arguing -- worst case involved extra fines and threats to my license by a judge with no sense of humor.I think that the whole gist of where we are going/venting here is officers that are using the -might is right theory and handing out tickets/fines/etc that are simply at the whim of the person that happens to be holding the ticket book that day
As noted above, manual vehicles in general don't have neutral lights, so I'd really like to know if bike have a specific requirement for them, and if so, how are Husky, KTM, etc. able to get approval to be plated without this being designed in from the factory?
