The guy tells me my turn signals are illegal but does me a "favor" and passes it. He tells me VA State Police are leaning on inpection stations because of non DOT lights. Mind you in VA turn sigs are not required but if you DO have them they have to work. They're trying to cut down on the little un-noticable blinkers popular with the sport bike scene. He said mine are plenty bright so he let me slide. They should be bright enough, they're halogen fog lights with amber lenses. Just giving you all a heads up.

Thanx for the heads up ! Thats why i kept the stock turn signals when i de- beavered and used the barrons license plate bracket. I should be good on inspection when July rolls around. I really dont understand the hassle you got because they are not much smaller than the stock ones. plus amber leds, WTF!!!! Picky, Picky Picky, but at least you got the sticker !:bigthumbsup:

Man, you need to go to my guy, he put a brand new sticker on my vehicle and a month later I took it to the dealer for thee free oil change and it needed rear brake pads, front wheel bearings and outer tie rod ends :eek:. I dont think non DOT lights would be a problem with him :D. The dealer asked me who in the hell inspected this thing? :a20:

Yes Here in the states we have to be inspected every 12 months as well, at least here in Virginia we do, every state is a little different. We have stickers with the month and year when the next inspection is due. What gets ruber stamped anyway, registration, license, or what ?

Whats up Jason? Nah, I've just been working as usual. I thought this every other Mon/Tue and every other Sat/Sun off schedule was going to be okay. Seems like when im off it either snows, rains or some other act of God keeps me at home. I wanna check that windshield out that you got, I sold my AK to a coworker and got a little spare change that's burning a hole in my pocket. That train that tried to go into the drink was the Chesapeake and Albemarle RR. They are a shortline that we interchange with at South Norfolk.

Just an FYI for anybody looking for a quick inspection with NO questions. Its taken me longer to get my helmet off than the time it took for my last inspection.

Just remember bad bike parts mean broken body parts. my 2 cent

Yo Doc C, that's the same spot I go to. They LOVE the 9 yo... Pretty much as long as your wheels aren't falling off, they'll hook you up. But Yeah, VA inspections are getting ridiculous; especially considering you don't even HAVE to have them.. Doc, where in Woodbridge are you? I'm off PW Pkwy and Minnieville.

reason why I always find the most ******* car station I can find...just pull in...they look at it...say hit the highbeams, and put a sticker on it....never had any issues with anything......now, going to a bike shop to get an inspection is different story....
