On March 12, 2010 the Indiana Governor signed into law an amendment to motorcycle handlebars. The currentl law states that motorcycle handlebars may not be in excess of 15″ above the level of the seat. Here is the new law:

Effective July 01, 2010 Indiana Code 9-19-7-2(1) now reads: [a motorcycle must be] equipped with handlebars that rise not higher than the shoulders of the driver when the driver is seated in the driver’s seat or saddle.

Anyone with a Chopper in Indiana needs to be aware.
