when motorized bicycles are outlawed , only outlaws will ride motorized bicycles! I ride all the time back and forth to work and on the weekends. I ride a lot of back roads and try to stay off the main roads. I follow all the rules of the road and be respectful to pedestrians. MB's are just a hobby and a cheap way from getting from point A to point B . I enjoy riding my mb and I cant think of one thing that would make mb's illeagal to ride. as a bicycle you have reflectors or lights you can only ride about 20 mph on average. wear a helmet and other safety gear. I have passed several police and nothing has been said , but Iam waiting for the day that they tell me "I am not allowed to ride my mb" and I will go through the system to find out what I can do to legalize it. it 's just another way for government officials to add more silver in their pockets! until then I will become a OUTLAW IN ILLINOIS.
