Default Re: Hello from lower GA

The Hub adapter is a good move for sure! No build is really complete without one.

I've not had any issues thus far with the local police. We have a couple that live in our neighborhood and we actually have more problems with people letting kids drive golf carts around on the main roads.

The Georgia law is a bit vague. The bike should be or stated as less than 49cc and have pedals then it is considered a moped which is not subject to being registered or needing insurance. You do however need to wear a DOT approved helmet and have a valid drivers license. It's helpful to print out a copy of the laws and keep it with you just in case. That being said I usually try to stay away from the main road and mainly go through parking lots and neighborhoods.

Hope that helps!
Currently no bike but thinking about starting a new build soon.
