Default No Rigid Frames in Canada

No not all of Canada, but the move is on to BAN rigid frame bikes over in NB. Aparantly some engineer has told the Registar of motor vehicles that Rigid frame bikes are unsafe at any speed. The registar has already begun by refusing registration to motorcycles that came from the factory that way. Whic happens to be an overstepping of his power.Any way over on Face Book there is a group called Rigid Riders that NEEDS our support. Sign up, read up, get informed, get pissed off, and pass it around your social circles. We need to act now before this crap hits the US

I'm not an asshole...I just type that way

I copied that and sent it to my Canadian friends. Thanks for the heads up, Kevin.

why would you want to ride a motorcycle with a rigid frame,its bad enough cycling with them,if its an older model classic fair enough but these days you can make a bike that looks like a rigid but has a hidden monoshock a la harley rocker.
