actually, that was the case til 74 i think. my 77 550 has the headlight on all of the time. but pre 69 needs turn signals. the nice thing is, by looking, 95% of cops dont know what theyre looking at. i asked my dad about it. (retired cop) he said as far as being pulled over for it, its probably not going to happen. now, if they grab you for speeding, then i suppose they tack it on.

ooops, i meant pre 69 does not require turn signals.

my fault.

i was following a guy on a mid 60s norton a while back. it was ver strange to follow someone without turn signals.

i have never ever understood why they do that. the local city resident parking stickers are supposed to go on your "windshield" what if youre bike doesnt have one? they started new parking rules a few years back. they installed these new electronic parking boxes. you pay, then put the receipt that comes out of the box on your dashboard. they thought great, no more meters, everyone will have to do it. any vehicle will have to have one. at first they were enforcing it with motorcycles. (you could pull up in your car, take one off a bike, and put it on your dash. walla, free parking) they did that until a club orgnaized a protest and brought 1500 bikes into town. they took up as many parking spots as possible. the city now allows bikes to park free around town. like they should.

you should hear toms stories about going through tolls with his sidecar. nys trying to charge him for 3 axles!

just amazing they think this shit up
