Where I live there any no inspections of any kind for any type of vehicles.

No emissions, no equipment checks, no safety checks, nothing.....

Each year they send you the registration information. All you do is provide proof of Liability Insurance, write them a check for the amount due, and send it in. A week or so later they send you a new 'sticker' for your tag that is good for the next 12 months.

Great place for people that 'build up and modify' cars, trucks, bikes, or anything else.

Only inspections here are if you bring a vehicle in from out of state. So the bikes never been inspected. which is good, because it would fail miserably.

Here in Simpson County Kentucky I only have to ride the bike and register it once a year, no inspection. The same was true of Southern California when I left there 6 months ago.

Illinois has no inspection of any kind for motorcycles. Having said that, they do have laws and local police can enforce them. Light, mirrors, horn and such. City of Chicago has been passed a noise ordinance but enforcement is not clear.

No inspections in my state but Im not going to say where that is. Some DMV employee might see the post and start agitating to have them here!
