I received this email enquiry from a member today.
Do you know where I can find out more on what Vic Roads & Vic Police current view of Tail Tidies & Fender Eliminators?
I like the clean look of a bike without the stock rear fender but don't want any fines.
Put simply, I don't know the answer to his question. I have heard stories of people being booked for riding unroadworthy bikes after fitting such devices which often lift the rear mudguard well above the centre of the back axle. I simply don't know the current legal ramifications in Victoria but I do know that some accessories do not meet roadworthy certificate requirements.
Scott and I would appreciate feedback from anyone who know the correct answer.
