How much is enough? At what point does personal freedom restriction stop?
So lately I got my motorcycle permit so I started researching bikes. I found out that even BIKES have california emissions! How DUMB is that? Bikes barely put out emissions at all! How can they possibly be subjected to that kind of restriction! How much is enough? When will CA stop restricting personal freedoms? Never, moving out of state is required. I mean doesn't EVERYONE have a lawnmower! And if there are that many lawnmowers doesn't it make MORE SENSE to put emissions on lawnmowers? :) Yes it sounds dumb, but jesus that's what we're talking about here! And while I'm on a rant why does my Z put out half emissions than an SUV. EVEN if I modified the Z, which our friends at carb don't let us do, it would still put out just barely over what it puts out now. But modification is illegal, yet an SUV is allowed to pollute LEGALLY! And I have to get carb emissions on a bike. How many bikes are there? Does this really have an impact on the smog? Lawnmowers must pollute more. I can see it now:
MAN 1: What are you doing this weekend?
MAN 2: Bringing my lawnmower in for it's smog test. The wife wanted to go away for the weekend (translation, he thinks he'll get laid) but I can't I gotta get the lawnmower smogged.
So then you'll have to register your lawnmower.
And of course don't get me started on the gun laws and personal protection laws. Those are insane and the subject of another posting.
