Wasn't sure where to post this information, but I did want to share it.
For California Riders:
Recognition goes to Senator Jeff Denham for stopping a bill that would require Motorcycles to pay the smog permitting tax that automobiles have to comply with. This would have been a RETRO ACTIVE law that would have required you to pay a fee by requiring you to smog your vehicle!
"Senate Bill 435 would require all motorcycles model-year 2000 and newer to be included in the smog check program beginning January 1, 2012. This bill would make the violation of the mandatory smog checks for motorcycles a crime."
Thankfully enough people turned out and this bill was "suspended" by Jeff - but it can turn up again. So be aware that it could turn up in any State!
Remember to GET ACTIVE in your local politics to have your Representative REPRESENT your views. No use complaining if you're not going to do something about it.

Sometimes too infrequently thinks turn out for the better.
