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
So no license plate either??
