SB5800 passed!

Awesome news, just in case you had not seen this yet.
Does anybody know if this applies to Japanese bikes, it seems it would but...
how about two smokers? I know, I am getting greedy.

THE WASHINGTON STATE LEGISATURE HAS PASSED LEGISLATION PERMITTING OFFROAD MOTORCYCLE TO STREET USE CONVERSION
Olympia, Washington 19 April 2011

The Legislature has passed and the Governor signed SB5800. This bill would allow properly equipped and documented off-road motorcycles to be legally converted to street use.

This common sense piece of legislation was passed with strong bipartisan support, 46 to 2 in the Senate and 96 to 0 in the House of Representatives.

SB5800 was sponsored by Senators Curtis King, Mary Margaret Haugen, Paul Shin and strongly supported by the Washington Off Highway Vehicle Alliance, the Northwest Motorcycle Association and a large number of offroad motorcycle enthusiasts.

With many offroad motorcycle trails being fragmented by road building and timber harvesting, there is a growing number of riders that would like the opportunity to make their motorcycles legal to use the forest roads to connect the otherwise lost trails.

The equipment requirement compliance inspection will be accomplished by motorcycle dealerships and the owner of the motorcycle will have to sign a statement that releases the State from all liability and acknowledges that they are aware that the motorcycle was not manufactured for street use and has been modified to be suitable for that purpose.

The Washington State Patrol did not oppose this bill and stated before the Senate Transportation Committee that properly modified offroad motorcycles would not be any less safe than other street motorcycles. Rural communities would also benefit when these motorcyclists are able to travel into their towns and enhance the local economy.

Other states have enacted similar laws and they have proven to be a safe and effective solution. With the additional fees involved, this will also be a revenue positive change for the State of Washington.

The mourning is over
Big Red is lonely and needs a new playmate. Big Red liked the big jugs on GS but thought she was fat and heavy and what a big ass with the bags. KTM was to small and had no ass to grab on to. Hmmm. Something exotic, sporty and of course has big jugs. ...............

To be continued.


On a side note it is sunny and hot in Napa. Lol.

I think a week of mourning will do and after that I will be able to live again. Taking on something new, younger and prettier.

I'd say you can buy the TE610 off me (that's sporty and exotic, right?), but grinns and I put the new fuel tank on it today and I think I'm keeping her. The new fuel tank also gives her some jugs

You went to Napa for this, I assume? If so, that's a very well sorted bike

Yes, A Day trip to Napa. Left on Friday and returned on Saturday. 800 miles each way. I drove down and rented a trailer for uhaul and drove back. I got back at 2AM and had to go for a little street ride at 7AM. The real test will be on Thursday. I am doing the Big Big BC ride. I think it will be 400 miles to get there and then around 300 miles of forest service roads. Can't wait.

Mini-Vacation

So it looks as if I am taking some time off, and wanting to plan a little trip (4 to 5 days) at the end of the month with my wife. But we do not know where to go, or what to do. We were thinking of doing some camping, and sight seeing etc. Were looking for campsites not to far from civilization, maybe some rafting, and maybe on the eastern side of the state. Any suggestions?

Hells Canyon? All the rivers are running really, really high. I'm in Baker City this evening and it's raining. Go figure.

Yeah no kidding! +1

If it is what I think it is, on Saturday there was one laying in a river, with just the bars and cylinder sticking out. . .
Please don't do that to yours!

Congrats!!!

In California, people would probably think you've got the hots for Senator Barbara Boxer
Come to think of it, they might up here as well...
