Default Re: Ahoy from Long Beach!

looks like you've been doing your research on craigslist.

every motor bike for sale always says "150mpg, 45mph, no license required!!!"

realistically, expect between 75 and 100mpg on average. a well tuned motor will give you more, a poorly tuned motor, less.

speedwise, stock out of the box is about 30-35mph.

and you DO need a license in California. check this thread:

don't let any of that scare you off, though. these things are super fun...
