Default Re: Hi from Illinois

I'm living in Aurora right now. A lot of people ride mundane bicycles around, but I don't know how the police react to motorized bicycles. In the last seven years I've seen one, so they're not too common. I know the state law says as long as the displacement is less than 50cc you only need a standard driver's license and otherwise it's no different from a bike on the roadway though. The only thing I can think of that might interfere with my groove is that city ordinance states all bicycles must be registered/licensed(free) at the police station. I don't know if that applies to motorized ones as well, or if the motor alters the classification somehow. I'm going to call the department and find out before I instal the motor just to get my facts straight.
