Do I need fenders on my motorcycle?

Yes. North Dakota Century Code 39-27-10 states each wheel must have a fender or be covered by the body configuration. Fenders must be securely mounted and of sufficient size and strength to minimize water or other road surface substances from coming in contact with the vehicle riders, or throwing the road substances unreasonably to the rear of the vehicle.  The fender design must be effective in reducing side spray.
