Default need some help on choosing a kit!

hey guys, this is my second post here. i am getting ready to set up a motorized bicycle and have a few questions about engines and different kits.

1) i am hoping to be able to commute down PCH on my bike to college (50 mile round trip twice a week), are motorized bikes capable of making such trips?

2) should i be looking at 4-strokes for reliability and the ease of just putting gas in the tank or should i use a 2-stroke? i prefer a lighter engine cause i will be putting the bike in my van for making short trips, but its not as important as having the right engine for my commute

3) should i purchase a kit from or or are pretty much all kits the same chinese motors?

4) i heard stuff about the C.A.R.B. law, do any so cal members here face any issues with cops riding a 2-stroke?
