    When i first got my bike, the previous owner had it inspceted, so i waited until the following year to have an inspection done. I thought that a bike inspection was going to cost the same as a car, i didn't know but never the less they asked for 10 and called it a day. Didn't know it was only 6 but was happy to not spend 35 or 40 or however much it is now for a car inspection. Since then, Indian larry or honda/yamaha for inspections. a few of my buddies bought bikes at honda/yamaha and they were happy and they did an inspection before a bear mountain ride few years back.

    I thought you were implying that they we're glad they had done their inspections because there was a police check point set up to check inspections, paperwork, etc

    Oh, no. They have their bear mountain run usually the last weekend of april, if i recall and if you're there early enough they offer inspections. Mine was set to expire in may so i had less then a month to get it done. And took advantage since i had to wait for the ride to begin anyway.

    My bike's inspection is due this month. I go to Rapid Performance in Astoria. They charge me $10, but I gladly give it to them because they're always pleasant, change my tires for me, even though my bike is not the brand/type they normally work on, and have 2 cats to feed. That, and the fact they're like 5 blocks from home makes it worth it.

    Have driven past this place so many times, always wondered what to make of it.
    Now I know if I am ever in a pinch. Thanks for the heads up.

    I think the issue will be riding back, not riding in.

    My job is letting us out at 2, but I drove anyways. Maybe if we actually get snow on the ground I’ll have to take the XT out for a romp in it

    Haha I think you might have inspired me to try the electric fat bike out there instead. They’re supposed to work well in snow
