No, he thinks that California is going to begin doing smog checks on motorcycles. I don't want this thread to turn into a debate on that subject.

Short version, if fuel gets in there, whether due to an overfill of the tank or a tip over on the trail, the bike will run like crap until the gas evaporates or worse, it can cause vapor lock in engine. Since I intend to ride off road a lot, which means falling over a bit, I do not want it there.
