Default Re: New, lostand confused

I read back, 80cc makes it a motorcycle, and you're lucky your locals aren't as much on the ball as they are here.

You need the correct speed rated tyres for the rated performance of the bike, disc or drum brakes, main and dip beam at the front, tail, brake and number plate light at the back. Ball ended levers. Proper continuous sounding horn, not a squeaky thing. Proper motorcycle helmet to the correct standard. Sound has to be below 91dB as measured.

That's all I can remember right now, the VOSA site will have links to guide you. Chris Corker is the man to talk to, he writes the rules and is an experienced rider himself. There's an obsolete number comes up on searches for him sometimes, 02380 something, don't ring that one, it's a private address number now.
