    Well, I was just reading that Georgia has a mandatory turn signal law for bikes above the year model 1971. I guess I better get busy putting some on the Sporty. Che's got no signals.Does anyone know about having a vertical plate in Georgia?

    2. No license plate shall be covered with any material unless the material is colorless and transparent. No apparatus that obstructs or hinders the clear display and legibility of a license plate shall be attached to the rear of any motor vehicle required to be registered in the state.

              Loud Pipes on each stop, 2 stops where for the forks and pipes and one stop the trooper said everything was illegal from front to back and I needed to leave the state.....forks to long/rake unsafe, pipes to loud, frame to low, tires worn out, (brand new tires!) signal lights incorrectly mounted....etc!

              Got two tickets out of 7 stop's, Loud pipes and improper head gear! Guess my skid lid didn't pass in Ga. as a helmet?!?! Both ticket's came on the first stop and when I showed the cop's the ticket's on the other stop's, they said that they would only issue me another warning and to fix the bike and leave the state!

              Riding a stock bike is better than riding a Chopper in Ga. Glad I wasn't flying colors....God only knows what would have happened to me then!
