    Default No longer need inspection in NJ

    Didn't see this posted, but interesting. Not that I've ever gotten my bikes inspected, but now I don't have to?

    you also dont have to show a registration decal on the plate if its due later than august. ive heard of some cops in the area not knowing this and handing out tickets for no inspection or registration stickers already.

    Here's the full story: http://www.gardenstateabate.org/html...hanges2010.htm

    I don't like this change, I keep all my bikes up to date and used to get them inspected privately. Now it seems like it can be open season for ticket writing. What makes the cops safety experts?

    I'LL BE AGREEING THAT IT OPENS UP the door for ticket writing free-for-alls. I never liked having to cheat the system to get my bike though before and feel a little better about not putting those guys on the spot but I think I'd rather do that than have cops doing roadside inspections.

    Like previously said- I don't want some d.bag telling me my bike isn't safe cause there's no front fender. An inconvienience to me maybe but unsafe? c'mon.

    If I start to see that happening I will surely be out there at the borough/county meeting complaining that it is a waste of tax money. We are laying off cops like crazy as well as other county/government jobs and they want the remaining fuzz to write tickets? I think fighting real crime should be a priority for the remaining police force.

    We'll see.........

    ride old shit - get a historic plate & they cant bust your balls. i think NJ doesnt require a front brake earlier than 74. same deal for fenders, signals, baffles, etc....

    I've looked into getting a historic plate and was told by the DMV rep that its only available for cars and trucks.

    Here is the list of requirements for safety from the NJ DMV website: http://www.state.nj.us/mvc/Vehicle/Motorcycles.htm

    I have a question about Historic plates. The link that was provided earlier,

    http://www.state.nj.us/mvc/pdf/Vehicles/SP-121.pdf, states the following:

    The vehicle must be owned as a collector’s item and used solely for exhibition or educational purposes. Please note that the vehicle cannot be altered from the manufacturer’s original design in any way and must be equipped for legal operation on New Jersey roadways.

    I'm curious to hear from people who have historic plates and if they've ever been hassled for not following the above requirements.

    Seems like the only benefit of the historic plates is the savings on registration fees? Now that inspections are not happening, I'd assume that cops doing safety checks will do so for any motorcycle, historic registration or not?
