    Wondering a couple of things, if anyone has a stock fender for a 2010-13 Z1000 I can buy or "rent" until the bike passes the inspection and;

    I hear there are shops that do the inspections now, not just DOT centres, would love any and all recommendations of places to hit up where I don't need to deal directly with DOT, did it once and it was enough for several lifetimes.

    Help me in my time of need please
    Motorcycle masters do DOT inspections I'm going to be taking my GS 500 to them

    Yep, and with less bullshit than the DOT ones.

    There's still some arrogance from some of the private ones, but not as much as the DOT places.

    DOH!

    Only other ones I've been to is Welshpool and the one south of freo (some festering pit) and they sucked!

    Back in the day, East Perth wasn't so bad either.

    Maybe we'll have to suss out the friendliest country town. Shire of Waroona mechanic anyone?

    But don't be a whining dick. I've watched then crucify someone with a modded VDub .

    The older guy their rides bikes and is a gem to deal with. He's lifted both my canaries, for the same thing with absolute minimal fuss.

    I went passed Warwick pits on Saturday and a big flashing sign says, at the close of business on June the 5th this centre will no longer do vehicle inspections
