Re: Mandatory M/C Emission Testing in Nazifornia
I think they're aiming for few things:
1. Revenue generation. $24 billion in the hole, expect them to tax everything.
2. Killing loud pipes. If you have to smog your bike, you're less apt to think the 2-3 HP gain in a range you never ride in is worth the hassle of changing the exhaust out.
3. Pleasing the Greenies. Yep, we're gonna be green, no matter what the cost is.
I hope they include lawnmowers and leaf blowers in the smog testing requirement. Then maybe we'll stop wasting water irrigating all of the non-native species here in the desert and actually be environmentnally responsible.
