    That's a good story, have another one?
    We are a commercial lines brokerage, not PL. If you have a jumbo jet, transportation company, vineyard or high tech defense company, we're the ones.

    Thanks for the plug though Perry.

    Just our specialties. But funny thing is one of our clients, who by the way, makes missile guidance and the telemetry systems for nuke missile busters, also is part owner in a vineyard in Temecula. :huh

    Anybody else get one of these when buying parts online from a California seller?

    Dear Customer,

    Order# Wxxxxxxx

    Thank you for recent purchase.

    Due to emissions restrictions enforced by California A.R.B, we need to advise you that the items your intend to purchase may change your vehicle's emissions to be illegal to ride on the highway and intended for use for closed competition only. Please check local vehicle codes regarding vehicle modifications prior to installing any engine, fuel and air emissions modifications to your vehicle.

    PLEASE REPLY TO THIS EMAIL WITH “I AGREE or OK” AND the vin number of your vehicle, to acknowledge that the items purchased and installed from Chaparral Motorsports may render my motorcycle no longer emissions legal for the state of California, and if it is no longer emissions legal I will only be using this motorcycle for competition purposes. If I choose to ride it on public highways, I must put it back to California emissions legal.

    If you do not agree to these terms and conditions of sale,Please reply to this email with ”I DISAGREE”, and we will need to cancel your order.

    Thank you for your cooperation, and we will get your order out as soon as possible.

    CHAPARRAL MOTORSPORTS
    555 South H Street, San Bernardino CA 92410
    800-841-2960
    909-884-1302



    Another reason to buy out of state - not that I want to hurt the California business - but I don't want my order delayed while we exchange silly emails. California businesses should really push back hard on crap like this.
