Saw that CVSE and the Police had a big roadside check going on, last Thursday on the sooke-a-halla. Stopping traffic in both directions. When I went through, they had about 6 bikes pulled over and 2 jeeps.....both of which had had mods done to them......larger tires, lifted, lights, etc, but at a glance looked to be very well done and were newer clean looking Jeeps. These were far from being off only, beaten buggies! It appeared that the police were pulling over bikes and wheelers, and the CVSE was stopping commercial traffic.
It *appeared* to me IMHO, that the police were stopping every bike and every modded vehicle that happened to be by. Why? Because likely someone decided it was "bike" day, or "4x4" day. I dunno.
So, even tho a front clip is road legal, as is an exo cage........do you find that these mods and other useful mods that make our rides a little more off-road capable, are a magnet to getting pulled over with a VI at the end of the shake-down......because they can? I was gravitating towards building an exo cage.......nothing too radical mind you, but may be rethinking this if becoming a target just because it's "wheeler" day becomes a common theme on the SVI.
