The California Highway Patrol seems to think my bike would be safer with turn signals and a mirror. I got the tickets a few months ago, and waited till the last minute to put these hideous parasites on. It's nice because I made it all quick release and externally wired, so I can take it all off in 2 minutes and put it back on in 5. This is the healthy choice for the next time an officer decides to justify his paycheck on my bike's behalf. I will keep them safely boxed for future use. Now this week I must ride it over to the CHP office, sign it off, go to the courthouse, pay the fine and skirt that bench warrant.
Respect only goes so far.
