    Just got a letter today saying that my bike needs no longer to be inspected in the state of NJ. What are your thoughts on this?

    I wish they would do away with it in NY, but they have to make their money.

    If it was just a waste of time and more of a money grab, then it's good to be rid of it.

    The only inspection done here in Manitoba is a safety when you buy or sell a bike, which is a good thing. It can be a pain if you don't live anywhere near a shop authorized to perform inspections though.

    Inspection here in the Garden State is changing. From what I have read, the stations, which are actually not run by the state but a private contractor, are all closed on mondays so they can stay open a few nights during the week. In addition, no more checking lights, horn, wipers, etc. My thoughts are that this is a good thing. Don't know about others, but I routinely check all my vehicles and make sure they are in working order. Before each ride on the scoot, I check the lights, horn, brake lights and directionals. Most of these initiatives are the result of Chris Christie, our new governor, trying to change a system of state government that has needed change for a long, long time.....

    It`s great for bikes, they never really checked them like they did the car`s.
    Just keep your eye on that car coming at you with bad tires and ball joints.:)

    Florida stopped vehicle inspection of both cars and motorcycle about 1980. To the safety people and FHP's chagrin there hasn't been on accident attributal to a failure of any thing that was inspected.
