60 centimeters? The answer is simple .. don't lower the handle bars ... raise the seat.

So you're saying 23" from the seat....arms extended strait ahead and that's it!! Basically that's what it means.

That law is pretty well standard...I think.You could always' move I guess

I'm pretty sure that at least some of the northeastern states that border on la belle province have the same or similar law.

The law in NJ is not above the shoulders. I don't think LEO bothers anyone though. I don't know about inspection... Tee

Here's a link to the American Motorcycle Association where you can check you state's laws regarding motorcycle restrictions, including handlebar height...

I'm in Ottawa, Ontario. Back in March my handlebars were checked by the cop with a measuring tape when I was pulled over. I forget exactly what the max legal measurement is but he had me hold the tape at crotch level and took a measurement. They were slightly over the "limit" but he let it slide. I went home and pulled my bars back a bit. My risers and bars have a total height of 15".

Quebec hates motorcycles unfortunatetly, laws are tougher there.
