    I couldn't agree more. It's not the bike but the idiot riding it that will cause changes in the law if those changes ever happen.

    My bike looks just like a motorcycle, especially viewed from head on. I had cops pulling u-turns in the middle of the street just to get behind me and see me pedaling. They also could not see any visible means of any type of exhaust when they were behind me. All I could is grin as they went by. LMAO

    In central Texas where I liv not only have the laws here not bothered me but some of my family have talked to some of them and ask if they have ever seen me riding my bikes, th cops said yes they had and were hoping to catch me so they could gt a better look at my bikes because they would love to have one themselves......lol!

    So as long as they keep feeling that way about my bikes I think Im good to go around here.

    All of the law enforcement in my neighborhood just wave as I buzz by. No issues here!!

    (There are a couple of State Troopers, a Sheriff's Deputy, and multiple city cops in my hood.)

    as it was more than 40 years ago, I just don't recall the details of the lawsuits, but know they were expensive and still going on for him after I bought the place & changed the name and changed to antique british and american cycles

    My experience with our local police guys and girls is very much the same. Being a sweet old lady who dresses in an old fashioned way no doubt helps as well.
