2. Tires not DOT (are you serious?)
3. Tag mounted sideways (OK, I admit that one)
4. Moto registered in Utah but I live in Louisiana (I've always wanted a Utah tag, a pretty one with Arches NP)
5. Rear turn signals too hard to see (Come on!)
6. Front turn signal busted (I crashed, what can I say)
7. Only one rear view mirror (but that is legal in Utah!)

A couple of days ago I contributed $128 to the Spokane County District
Court...I still think I didn't deserve a ticket....
Spokane County District Court: I work all the time in Washington and Oregon. They both seem sort of like nanny states to me, lots of minor regs for all possible situations. But it’s hard to beat the beautiful countryside and the locals have always been friendly. (however I have avoided local enforcement so far-----)

Anyway, I have truly enjoyed your report, makes me want to get that second ‘light weight’ duel sport bike and hit some local single track

look forward to more next yr.........
