    Question Anyone got VI or know someone who got VI?

    I have heard of people getting VI on cars but what about motorcycle?

    If you ride though a roadblock with these heavily customized motorcycle/scooter, will you get a VI?
    Technically I guess they could? I'm just asking because I don't think I have ever heard of bikers getting a VI.

    I'm guessing the OP means Vehicle Inspection. Yep, happen all the time with exceedingly loud motorcycles, incorrectly mounted license plates or mods that are just red flags.

    I hear no tach is a huge red flag. They'll almost always tag you for it and laugh about it later.

    my thoughts exactly!

    buy yes I would imagine anywhere else other than BC there must be bikers who get 'visual inspections'

    I say outside of BC as we all know modding is illegal on BCSB

    I love generalized statements. They impart so much crucial and intelligent information.

    its generally true..

    especially when you get a vi and you're left with mechanics that come up with stupid ideas such as you cant run a radial master with axial calipers, or a licence plate is too wobbly.. just to fail your modified bike in fear of loosing their licences.

    VI's from the fashion police are the worst. They say nice stuff to you but later on you find out they were being super sarcastic about your bike.

    Good rule to live by is that if you meet a cop, or a mechanic who's an asshole then you just met an asshole. But if everyone you meet is a asshole; you're the asshole.

    I've only worked with several hundred, so I can't speak for all. But my findings have been similar to that of CDG's ....... pointless esthetic mods like license plates in ridiculous places, straight pipes, lights that serve no purpose, tires with no tread left, rolling junk piles ..... those attract negative attention. *

    The other items seem to be an issue between you and your mechanic. I would really like to know what the permissible amount of wobble is allowed on a license plate though. *
