Oh, gotcha. Cops could seem to give two poops other than busting you for rising on the sidewalks downtown or excessively blinding them with your headlamps. Trust me, that is a sure way of getting noticed, looking right at one with your aimed-too-high 500 lumen HID. It really about not getting squashed, so don't worry too much about the letter of the law. It also says you're supposed to register and license your bike...
