I get some crazy looks on mine when I'm zipping down through an area where the speed limit is 40-45 mph and I'm running with traffic, people at the plant where I work have seen me and they come to work talking about it and shaking their head about seeing me running with traffic on my bicyle, Ive got into a lane next to our sheriff running down the main highway through town at 45 mph and he just looks and grins at me...LOL!

Nice to live in an area where even the people that dont have a motorized bike think its as cool as I do and the laws get a kick out of them instead of acting like idiots and trying to make me slow down or try to give me a hard time in some other way.

most of the thime I'm cruising at 30-35 mph though.
Same here... I weigh in at about 225lb and the bike another 50 or so, so it does take a little extra power to push me...
Also, that's what I like about Texas law and these little bikes... most the time the cops just smile and wave or even give a thumbs up when they pull up next to me going the same speed as the traffic... and mine is pretty loud with a 1" diameter stinger and no muffler... sounds like a pissed off chainsaw on stearoids going down the street... lol
