    What do they do to "SMOG" a bike? Don't think I've heard this term before.

    I'm going to take a guess and say emission test.

    I'm afraid your right dbmg. Are all cars and trucks tested in Sacremento and they are just adding bikes?

    What they do is make sure the bike has the stock pipes and stock carb. and air cleaner on it and no power camander.This is just the start,And yes its coming your way.Its for bikes 2000 on up.

    Yes pretty much of ca. has veh.smogged and their doing it now in reno and tahoe,so its just a matter of time everybody will be doing it.thats what i was told.

    Doing that to a Harley is just UNAMERICAN! I'm glad I live in Kansas.

    And if it follows the same way as cars, there will stiff fines and penalties imposed for tampering with emission control devices.

    Got to Agree here and would add I bet there to be a Big push for Mandatory Helmet law changes
