great handle, seems you have the inside information that we all seek.
I now wonder why such a concern with the RUM bikes? If I had to compare my 25 hp dirt bike with a +150hp harley clone with a 2 foot wide rear tire with raked out front forks and ape hangers for handle bars. I doesnt take a university scholar to figure out witch one is going to be dangerous on the road. On top of that we as DS riders usually ride with full armour and full face helmets, have you seen what these other guys are wearing for protection?
Our little RUM bikes were actually designed to fall over, cant say that about most street bikes.
I think CVSE guys are going after the wrong group of riders out there. I do understand the underlying issue with RUM bikes being made street legal, seem silly but if the rules are clear and everyone understands them then OK. Up till now its been pretty vaque.
I know in California when they decided to put a stop to licencing off road bikes (about 5 years ago) there was a full years notice in advance from the government of their intentions. That gave those who wanted to bring their bikes into compliance time to do so and be legal.
In typical Canadian fashion we want to take what are basically law abiding citizens and make them into petty criminals.
If this is CVSE intents to enforce this compliance issue and hand out the"Notice & Order to have an inspection that you cannot pass." It may be time to take on "the man" What do we have to loose?, judging by what is being said here CSVE is going to be gunning for us.
If CSVE decides to start pulling DS bikes over for spot inpections, we should hear about it and lets take CSVE to court and plead our case to a judge. What do we have to loose?
