You guys are lucky that you don't live in California. The YZ isn't really an option here because of the red sticker unless you only like riding 6-8 months out of the year or you have another bike. I have also been reading that the national standard will change to be the same as California in the next couple of years. Does this mean every state will have to put up with the red sticker / green sticker crap? Very newly returning to bikes, so excuse the vagueness and/or stupidity.
