    Welcome to the forum John, glad you joined us.

    My personal opinion is you should wait until you are old enough to operate one. I think you would enjoy it more with out having to look over your shoulder all the time. And for the reason you mentioned, you do not want your motorized bike to be confiscated.

    you might want to try a electric bike or scooter out first.

    thanks a lot for giving me sound advice,i have an elctric scooter had it for 7 years but my need for speed led to me to drive so fast that there wasnt any lights working at all and now the batteries arent holding the charge so its been dead for about 5 years

    replace the batteries for $50 or get a new electric scooter or bike,maybe one with more power.
    if you have lights on the bike or scooter they should be powered by a separate battery so it doesnt take away from the power.
    2-stroke in frame engines can be a lot of work to put on and mantain.
    get a new scooter or batteries then when youre 16 or so get a engine kit so it will be legal,no one wants there hard earned bike taken away.
    plus you can upgrade your electric one with more powerful motor and batteries.
