FOUR KEY AREAS Enhance your feeling of control and confidence with a natural position, having all controls at just the right reach. Consider these four adjustable areas to confirm your riding fit:
Where the bar postions your hands, wrist and arms directly affect how you feel on the motorcycle. The shapes of the bar determaines your reach to the hand controls and, therefore, your overall comfort and feeling of control.
For maximum comfrot, a broad seating surface distributes weight to reduce pressure points, and a narrow, tapered thigh zone provides easier reach to the ground. A Reduced Reach Seat holds the rider in a commanding position, lessening the reach to hand controls, foot controls, and the ground.
A long stretch of the controles or a "knees-high" cramped riding position puts strain on your body after even a short ride. Repositioning your feet on the controls relieves muscle tension, takes pressure off the tail bone, and reduces rider fatigue.
Combining a narrow seat and a low-profile suspension is the easiest way for a shorter rider to fit comfortably on a larger bike. Consider lowering your suspension to fit your measurements or your style.
New Laws Affecting Motorcyclists
Effective January 1, 2013: New penalties for motorcycle owners who have replacement exhaust systems or mufflers manufactured after January 1, 2013 installed in motorcycles built after that date that do not bear a legal EPA label.
Motorcycle riders are subject to a fix-it ticket if a peace officer stops them for loud mufflers. The law only applies if the original equipment muffler, or aftermarket replacement muffler has been manufactured after January 1, 2013 and does not have a federal EPA noise emission label. If the exhaust system in question was built before January 1, 2013, NO CITATION can be issued under CVD 27202.1
A rider can only be cited if first stopped for something else.
Citation shall be treated as mechanical violation, or fix-it tickets, which will be dismissed by the court for a nominal fee with proof of correction.
Fines are $50 to $100 for first conviction and $100 to $250 for second & subsequent citations.
Motorcycles with factory original exhaust and aftermarket exhaust manufactured before January 1, 2013 cannot be cited under CVC 27202. They can be cited under other excessive noise, or modified exhaust vehicle code sections.
AB 1708 allows the use of mobile electronics devices to establish proof of insurance when asked to provide it by a peace officer.
AB 1890 allows a toll road transponder to be carried on a motorcycle rider's person, rather be affixed to the motorcycle windshield which could be stolen.
