Well dude this is gonna get ugly, cause there are a lot of people here who love the popo's going over your bike with a fine tooth comb. Let's see if they pipe up


I wouldn't have been so cooperative, but now you know...

Those reflectors are important, they should not be removed.

And if you're looking for a recommendation for a good body shop to have them reinstalled, I know a guy...

Someone must know the answer:
If you are pulled over and the officer can not articulate "why" you were singled out and stopped then it's just a friendly chat. Any ticket, fix-it or not is unwarranted and
should be tossed if taken to court. I doubt a fix-it reflector ticket is worth that
hassle but for some it might be.

Grants work for road block type "safety" inspections where no one is singled out, everyone gets stopped, ie all on motorcycles.

Dude, you need to man up and quit crying like a baby. So you got a ticket. Big deal. Coming on ADVRider and telling an officer to kiss your ass for doing his job? Un-Fucking-Real.

I'm willing to bet you are one of those guys who has his bike set up like a Squid. How about some pictures of your squid mobile?

BTW, stripping off stock rear reflectors and not replacing them is asking for a death wish. Why not use your brain and get some license plate bolt reflectors. It might save you from getting rear ended some day when your KTM Kraut Wagon's tail light burns out.
