    all is good, not stressing really
    got pulled over by a bike officer heading home tonight

    was nice to him and he was fair, while waiting for my drug test he had a look at my car,

    questioned the rims and i said they were 18's he asked the tyre placard and i said that was 14"
    he said fair enough......
    i said too him under my impression the2" rule has be abolished to which he said yer

    :D i was grinning on the inside ha

    he checked the book on diameter and asked if i knew the size diffrence to which i said they were 5 or so mm bigger........
    he checked and came up with 46mm.........i shat my dacks.
    i question it and he double checked with me and he read the worng line......feww

    popped the bonnet looked in the bay and all was fine,
    walked to the drivers door and looked at my horn and asked if it worked
    i said nah its disconnected,

    so i ended up only getting defected for no horn working :)
    so cop shop inspection..... nice and simple

    was good copper, was talking too him about his bike and riding etc,
    got 5 days too drive still also

    chasing down a steering wheel now

    Oh jesus, it was only the horn. Sounds like he was really looking hard to defect the vehicle. But fair enough horn must get fixed.
