Hey all, so after a great 2000 kilometer trip down to orbost from sydney and back again over the last 3 days, i had my great time completely ruined by a bald idiot of a cop who, at an rbt 5km from my house decided: 1. my completely stock in every single way rego plate attachment plastic thingo was a hack job done by me to prevent him from reading it, as i said, its fully stock in every way. 2. because there was some chain lube overspray on the sidewall (not the tread) of my tire, which woud "cause me to lose it the second i went around a bend" (ignoring the fact that i had just gone around 2000km of twisties in the past 48 hours) meant that my bike had some kind of oil leak from somewhere?? 3. Fair enough, i did not have my chain guard on, but he refused to give me a warning for this even though i told him i lived down the road and had it at home ready to go on. Anyway, the guy gave me a defect and a $100 dollar fine, which i later found out was optional, considering i was fully compliant and polite and didnt argue, is bullshit. He has also made me go for a full inspection, not a partial one, for reasons i cannot understand. My bike is currently running rich after i ran out of petrol, and i doubt it will pass emissions unless i get the carbies broken down and cleaned and retuned (at least $1k probably more) What am i supposed to do? how can i fix something that is completely stock? why is having an oily swingarm (umm, my bike is 25 years old, yeah, its going to be a bit oily and grimy, but not one part of it drops a single drop of fluid anywhere) a defect? Seriously, i cant afford this crap, i doubt my bike will pass emissions because its running a bit rich, and if they dont pass my exhaust, my bike will be unregistered for life (you try finding a stock exhaust for a one of a kind bike, it just is not possible) what the fcuk am i supposed to do? a great trip spoiled, fyi, victoria>nsw when it comes to twisties.
