Such would be the importance of inclusive details within proposed definitions.

I'm sorry you feel that it's either confusing or harassment, but a forum is for the discussion of topics in this fashion - up to and including expounding on points made by others as well as the exchange of dissenting opinions *shrug*

First off, the linked pdf is out of date by a decade. The MA laws were updated in July 2009 with a third class of two wheeled vehicles added where there had been two.

This is the 4th post directed at my one initial comment, 4 out of 17 before the last. I have the sense that near 25% of the posting in the entire thread, contributing little to the OP's original comment but rather skewed to "correct" mine, is suspect. I am not the one confused but I do suspect this is harassment.
