Default Re: I'm confused!

most folks in CA get away with no lic on these IF they have no centrifugal clutch (which classes them as 'automatic trans') all CA laws specifically call out bikes with 'auto trans' as what they apply to

makes it a gray area in that no current law says anything about direct drive bikes

best to follow all other laws tho about stay in bike lane, have mirror/horn/helmet, lights after dark, and obey traffic laws

I keep a lic. in my car, but have carried no form of ID for last 20 or so years - been riding daily on the bikes for about 6 years with no problems

most of my CA customers have no lic. and have no problems at all
Sometimes I sets and thinks, sometimes I jes sets.
