Plate must have a light and remain 100% visable from the rear. All four turnsignals must be functional and be DoT approved.

And turn signals must be 9 inches apart from each other.

Nova, I hope you got your answers, Sorry to thread JACK but I got these questions, (thought its easy to ask questions under one thread instead of crazily creating lots of nonsense threads)

a. Is it legal to ride with both hands off the handlebar for few minutes? (Its painful during morning commute to work in traffic)

b. Is it legal to give throttle with my left hand for a minimal period of time? (this will rest my right hand for few minutes during a slow long ride)

P.S: I didnt use the search button yet. I apologize.

Thanks

IMO - that would be officer descrestion as to whether or not you were maintaining proper control of your vehicle. Maybe one of the fellas in that role will chime in.

You do not have to have turnsignals on a bike. As long as all four do not work then its ok.
If the front work then the back have to work if the back work then the front have to work.

Actually, it states more so that if you have them, they have to work. Or you can not have them at all. If you do have them and they don't work, you won't pass. And as someone already stated, if you have fronts but no rear, or rear and no fronts, that is a problem as well.

Does that mean there is no definite law mentioning these two acts in Black & White but still can be charged by an officer if he finds I do not have proper control on my vehicle? I am kind of lost. I am sure, I will be doing more often as soon as schools re-open.

FYI: I have been doing this for many years in different country. I am sure, I have enough control while doing these on my vehicle.

Thanks

You may not remove both hands from your handlebars or your car's steering wheel, you have to have one or both at all times. If you do, it constitutes up to reckless driving. I had a buddy get a reckless for removing both hands and stretching, momentarily, a broken back and was jammed with a ticket.

You can't let a car idle without a driver in the vehicle, even in your own driveway. You can't throw your bike or car in neutral and let it coast.

I can't speak to the one about reaching across with the left to run the throttle, most likely legal.

Thanks. I guess, I will run the throttle with my left hand for now.

P.S: I never do these on highways or speed above 25mph or while changing lanes.
