It's probably not going to affect me much.
I've taken a look at my R3T and the driver backrest could arguably be considered a "handhold".
It's firmly mounted to the bike; the pillion will lose their grip long before it comes off.
I've asked the wife about the Voyager. Seems she can reach the chrome rails on the saddle bags easily.
If I start hearing about people being ticketed; I will find a way to put a strap on the Corbin seat.
I think inspection and now registration might be an issue. And insurance companies might try to weasel out of payments if they think these "handholds" aren't up to snuff.
Any way you look at it; it's bad law.
