    Motorcycle Harassment Month has begun

    Just a reminder to all that it's random pull over bend over and get your bike checked over month. Don't be surprised when you get handed a vehicle inspection for those 'sick' flush mount turn signals and rear hugger plate mount.

    Licenses are also checked during May, so if you're a learner make sure you are following your restrictions properly.

    Glad I'm gonna be away for most of it!

    Actually 28% of motorcyclists pulled over do not have the proper license. That becomes
    the big problem.

    Licence, check, tiny led turn signal, no thanks, bent hidden plate, not a chance. I was stopped twice in the last 12 years for a licence check. First time, "Hey, those guys were going much faster than me! Response, "Don't worry it's just a licence check." Then, "You're pretty old to be riding such a fast bike." Answer, "Is there an age limit?" No, then goodby.

    I always wondered if that was all bikes types or if a certain type of bike/biker was over represented in this category.

    is it actually legal to pull you over to see if u have the proper endorsement on your license ? would the information for the principal operator not be available to the police when they run your license plate ?

    1) The principal operator is not always the operator of the vehicle.

    2) Peace Officers can stop any motor vehicle for the sole purpose of checking for a valid license and insurance.
    The difference between you and me .........

    personally i never ran into problems but i have to agree the only way to know it's a motorcycle 'awareness' month is by the sight of bikes being pulled over. how about nice campaign ads on tv, radio on road signs etc?

    was stopped at a roadblock last year for a license check, officer apologized for stopping me, but said almost half the motorcyclists they stop aren't licensed so they have to do it. Chatted about bikes with him for about 10 minutes or so, was a good experience.

    I'm going to assume right now,,,,that you will NOT be offering a "blind eye" in your inspections to things like undermounted license plates, exhaust that can be heard for a 1/4 mile, non DOT turnsignals, non DOT headlights, etc,,,,,,

    Anytime I have ever ridden a sport bike anywhere near downtown (which is rare) I get the courtesy check. The best part is after you prove you have a license and insurance is the slow walk around the bike trying to find something they can hassle you about. Keeps me from riding there which is proably the whole point.
    Mach tuck?!

    Wasn't this the whole confuffle in Ontario recently where a judge said that wasn't a valid reason?

    I'm also curious to know when it's car harassment month. Amazing you never hear about people being "randomly" pulled over and time wasted for a license check in their Corolla while they were driving the speed limit.

    Last time I got pulled for a check there were 4 cars and one motorcycle. I got to the check last and I left first. Didn't look like the cars would be going anywhere.

    I guess if there weren't so many clueless jackass motorcycle riders exercising their "right" to do as the please us non-jackass riders wouldn't get jerked around.
