Which reminds me. Some enduro races in ohio need a plated bike correct? And does anyone remember the form name/number we dug up months ago for the Ohio change of body affidavit? Looks like turn signals are the only thing needed for street legality on this one.

Red sticker bikes that were converted incorrectly in CA have had their plates recalled in some cases. There were conversations regarding this on KTMTalk a year or two ago.

This only applies to passenger and commercial vehicles. Motorcycles, personal trailers, maybe others are exempt. If you can't afford to get stickers for everything, choose wisely and you may avoid the fee.

Really? I thought everything 1973 (or something near that) and newer required signals.

Says there that they need them if built after 1968.

There has always been a loophole for converted bikes, the forms had check boxes for required equipment and they never had a box for turn signals. Since they are altering the forms, it's a little fuzzier. I'm working on getting the form standardized across the state and a rule clarification from ODPS.

1968.

The conversion form doesn't spec out signals but the vehicle code does. I doubt you'd get cited for not having them unless you ride like a jackwagon, but technically they are required to operate the bike on the road, just not to plate the bike.

Edit, gonzo beat me to it

I agree that 1973 is the first year turn signals were required on motorcycles(street). I had a 1972 Norton Commando(bought it new) and it did not have turn signals. The 1973 models did have them, however. I'm really curious how that 1968 date got in there.

Not all states have the same year requirements. Here's the actual referenced code. I also noticed there is no reference to lane splitting being illegal, Meef?

There's only a couple of states that have laws for or against lane splitting. There's also only a couple of states that have laws about how old kids must be to ride as passenger.

I bought my bike from an Ohio Norton dealer in 1972. It was legal then, and for the succeeding years I owned the bike. In reading the above code it sounds like it would not be legal now(I no longer have the bike). Is this, in fact, the case? I find it hard to believe.

It does seem odd, the code also reads that autos built after 1954 have to have signals and I know damn well there were several British and German cars that didn't have signals til the mid 60's.

I'd have to look but I'm fairly sure there is a limitation to number of vehicles that can share a lane abreast of each other, IIRC it is 2 bikes. It may not be specifically referenced for vehicles other than bikes, i.e. 1 bike, 1 car.

Would now be a good time to admit I'm not really a very good cop? I kind of make the rules up as I go. It's been a problem over the years, my captain is always calling me in the office and screaming at me, but the yelling usually ends with "I wish I had more men like you". Then I take a swig from my flask of whiskey, move my Beretta from being tucked into the back of my jeans around to the front, and I go out and break into the South African Embassy with my partner in an effort to get the needed evidence to prove those kaffir hating bastards are actually dealing drugs. Hell, I don't have time to know all the traffic laws with all the real cop shit I do.
