How much are those Robin Sabaru engines vs Honda? I'm not looking for a lot of speed, just some websites I have been looking at said that the 2-strokes I was looking at went 35-40mph and the 4-stroke went 25-30mph.

Are 4-strokes mounted on the rear of the bike and 2-strokes mounted on the inside the frame above the pedals? Or am I wrong about that?

Have you every been stopped by the police on your motorized bike? If so, what did the officer say?
