XR Passes Freaking Inspection

Unbelievable. My XR passed without questions. No hi-lo beam, no mirrors, no speedo. Only turn signals, front light, rear light, and rear brake light. It freaking passes. Unbelievable. You gotta hand it to the district. I guess sometimes it pays to have clueless inspectors.

wish it were a Va insp. station, I'd haul mine up there just for the sticker.

I can see you slipping by without a horn, but no mirrors!? That's the most obvious dead giveaway possible..

IF the bike has signals, all 4 must function properly. That's it.

VA DMV will issue a plate/title with just about any MSO or out of state title. Even a 2-Stroke (I had a Street Legal KDX200)
Some of that is news to me. Thanks very much, I appreciate it.

Bulgaria was cool. Much poorer than I expected. There's a scary real estate boom going on there. Good skiing at Bansko. And... the most beautiful women in the world. And plenty of DS opportunities...
