For cars...you get your inspection done before the end of the month that it expires in, and they give you a new sticker for that same month of the following year. Why is it that every time I get my bike inspected I get a sticker for some other random month (something like 9 months later) and they don't put the number of the month on the side of the following year? Anyone else know what I'm talkin' about here?
I got a ticket for an out of date inspection about five or six years ago. I had to go to court and show the judge the inspection paperwork to prove when I had it done because it didn't match up with the sticker. The judge was so confused he gave me the benefit of the doubt and dismissed the case. Ever since then I've always been nervous to ride at the beginning of every season before I get my yearly inspection as well as the end of the season because I don't know what the "official" expiration date is.
