correct.

I have seen the sticker but if u look up the law the sticker is not required for going helmetless. U ARE required to show proof of i think $10K worth of helth insurance. sorry if this was posted before

well no helmet is probable cause to stop you which of course means they check for all the other stuff.
I have only heard of one guy, (on a harley), that got stopped in seabrook and he got a ticket as he had no sticker nor proof of health insurance.

Exactly, those laws are used to create "probable cause"...not necessarily to be widely enforced. If a cop has something against you and he wants to get you he can easily refer to one of the many "Mickey Mouse" laws available to inconvenience you...

Some cops are , some cops are cool...way of life! The cop writing those tkts for things like "inspection sticker" in the wrong place, "License Plate must be visible" and items such as tire wear was being a ...because those things are trivial, why would it be necessary to have the inspection sticker visible as long as the vehicle is actually current on inspection? It's not , for any practical sense of course. Visibility of the license plate is relative to the individual viewing said plate. What one person considers visible may not constitute "visible" to the next person. So yes, he was being a ...but if he finds somethin, then you weren't handlin' your business...and it is your fault. I do stress though that THAT particular cop was being a B-I-T-C-H...

I have to disagree w/ you there.

Yes, I can see your point about inspection sticker. It's mostly a formality and usually does't really prove anything. Most people who wouldn't pass inspection can usually find a "buddy's shop" that will pass it anyway.

However, enforement of "license plate not visable" is not being a . If you had a family member struck or caused to wreck by someone on a bike, would it not upset you that folks couldn't get a license number to report to the police?

As I said before...visibility of the license plate is relative. What you consider relative may not be the general concensus. And even if you don't accept that...license plates are easily replaceable, A truly motivated individual can either take the plate off or have placed a "false" plate on the bracket. Again I say...TRIVIAL.

LAME....Right or wrong, agree or not. I would think the police would have better things to do than target SB riders with the Houston Crime rate going up.

LOL the Houston police are saving the world one motorcycle ticket at a time.....yeah Lame.

...I'd also be willing to put money on a significant number of hit and run cases not being solved because witnesses couldn't report a license plate (on a car).

Want to bet? I'm fighting a ticket now because I was pulled over and ticketed for "90 in a 70" in July of 2004. The cop said he paced me for 5 miles. I pointed out the fact that I just got on the freeway maybe a mile back and even pointed to it, but he told me I didn't get on there. I was insured, tags up to date, had my license and was in full gear, yet I still got a ticket.

I never have problems with the police until I'm on my bike. That's when I see them following me and waiting on me to screw up on some unknown law. That's the main reason I've given up street riding.
