    I tried to get my 450 inspected today so I could renew my tag, and the shop wouldn't do it because it doesn't have any turn signals on it.

    Where do you guys go for inspections?

    Thanks

    That's what I told the place. But they still wouldn't do it.

    SWEET!

    I just learned that Moto Vicious does state inspections on bikes.

    Much better than an auto shop that doesn't know jack about bikes!

    Spill the beans! Who was it that wouldn't inspect it? Just making sure I am not giving them business.

    Its odd that someone performing inspections OR the State Trooper that stops you don't know the law. I respectively disagreed with the later once on my KTM along side 25/70.

    It was the Firestone/Bridgestone shop on Long Shoals at Hendersonville.

    They were actually super nice - they just ain't the place to go to to get your bike inspected.
