Re: Washington rider question?????

You MUST have mirrors for it to be legal. Don't think the cops really care enough to stop you for not having them though. I did it once (just to see how it looked and felt) and I've got to say it was a pretty sketchy ride (especially with a passenger). We've got some idiot drivers back home.

Anyways heres proof.
