Re: NY laws on motorize bikes?
NYS considers it a motor vehicle.
Since it has no VIN, it cannot be registered or insured.
According to NYSDMV If you ride in NY you are subject to arrest.
I ride every day anyway, and have passed many police who paid me no mind.
Of course, I obey traffic laws, stop at stop signs, give cars the right of way.
If you ride normal and regular, there will be no problems.
If you ride like an @$$hole, then expect problems.
