Default hello from West Babylon, NY

I don't know if I'm in the right place for this but, I'm 56y/o man living in West Babylon, NY.
Paying high fuel prices made me crazy enough to purchase a, do-it-yourself, motorized bicycle kit. When I checked the DMV to see if it was legal in NY, I didnt look far enough into it and only saw (what I wanted to see) the moped classifications, and went ahead and ordered the kit. Delivery took 4 weeks for the entire kit to arrive in about 3 stages. As each piece arrived I got more excited. I decided to redo my research and realized my mistake. Motorized bicycles can be registered, insured, inspected,and properly outfitted with lights etc. but can NOT be driven on any street, sidewalk, shoulder, bike path, park, nor any public place in the state of NY.
My questions are;
Is anyone here from Long Island, NY?
Where do you ride?
