Re: A rant by Maniac57 about freedom.
In my state ( Tennessee ) we got a 50 cc limit, an automatic transmission requirement and must have a driver's license. So I've got a valid driver's license, my engine is under 50 cc, my gearbox uses a centrifugal clutch and my bikes shifts 5 gears automatically. I obey all the traffic laws and don't ride like an idiot. The cops have never bothered me.
Here in my state we don't have to register or insure our bikes but we can voluntarily do it if we want to. Everything about my bike is legal so I don't have to worry about riding it on the streets.
