It should say, "Ride-in motorcycle & tow-in trailer inspections."

To me the sign is correct, why be redundant and state "ride in" or "tow in" I am sure any one with a motorcycle or trailer needing an inspection knows they do not need an appointment per that sign and how they will get it there. Oh, and yes Blue is the fastest color!

I s'pose... maybe... I'm no authority on grammer, that's for sure but it just struck me funny as all get out. Still does.

My pea brain would ride a bike in or tow a trailer in. <shrug>
