Bill would make motorcycle inspections biennial

News Date

This week the House of Representatives will vote on HB 553, a bill that would change motorcycle inspection requirements to once every two years.

Bill supporters argue that the average motorcycle rider puts on many fewer miles than automobile drivers each year, due in part to seasonal restrictions.  As a result, motorcycle parts are unlikely to need replacement within a single year.

Bill opponents argue that motorcycle parts can experience significant wear even while in storage, and the best way to protect the safety of the public is to keep inspections annual.  At the bill hearing, only the bill sponsor testified in favor of the bill.
