    To LEGALLY ride a motorized bicycle in CA you need a M2 endorsement on your licence
    You need a license plate from the DMV
    You need to wear a helmet

    Motorized Bicycles are LEGALLY limited to 30mph and 2 HP

    The only correct statement is that you do not need insurance

    A bunch of 50mph 5 to 9 HP Morinis running around is only going to screw it up for the rest of us.

    You can get away with what you say on your website but be prepared for an expensive reality check...

    sounds like a cool idea, but your statement;

    "...Motorbikes are unique in that the state recognizes them as motor assisted bicycles, they are subject to the same rules as a regular peddle bike.

    You do not need a license, registration or insurance to legally ride one on the road. See here for CA laws. (on page 3)..."

    refers only to electric bikes (section 403b)

    you need to go a little deeper into what you actually need to be legal in california or you could be setting yourself up for some big trouble...

    check this thread:http://motorbicycling.com/f17/real-deal-california-law-15268.html

    while some cities and counties (and some cops) may have their own interpretations of the "law," you need to know what the state of california actually considers legal.

    you can also do a search for section 406a on the dmv website.

    I look at it this way, just because you can do 50mph..doesnt mean you have to. They can be geared to do 20-30mph or as fast as you want.

    There are plenty of cars on the road that will go well beyond the speed limit, but that does not mean you have to speed.

    There are a lot of Chinese motors on motorized bicycles in Tucson. Some of these guys drive like nuts and our grabbing the attention of City council and the local fuzz. With your statement, then we out to stop using chinese motors as well cause some are going to ruin it for everyone. No matter what engine or set up you use...there is gonna be nuts out there that use them improperly.

    Oops, fixed the wording and added an easier to read link...

    fair hit the nail on the head, you can gear them for 30mph and the morini's will fly up to speed.
    Another aspect he stated is true also, I have a 180mph+ superbike, but have never gone that fast on it ;) Almost every car and bike is fast enough to get a ticket, so how you use things will determine if you get fines or not.

    My love of racing and efficiency fuels my minimalistic designs and I'm not gonna lie, every motorcycle I've built has emphasized speed and performance. I am just going the same with MotorBikes.

    Here is a comment from another mber about your behaviour....

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r0bz7PbQ1LY

    I do not mean for this to sound rude or hateful ! I wasn't going to comment,,, but feel I need to . I hope you live long enough to keep us posted !! I watched your video several times & counted about 8 traffic violations along with the speeding & noise ! This will surely bring attention to the police ,,, which will eventually be the demise of motor-ASSISTED bikes in your area, & possibly ours.
    Be careful , & slow down !

    Sorry if I offended anyone!
    but the clutch just dosn't fully disengage until 35+mph and I'm forbidden from adjusting the engagement point for another few hundred miles!


    I've taken my bike past officers- who have just looked and went about their business.
    They are very friendly here, and I've specifically asked about the legalities, all three officers agreed they are no problem, just DONT ride on the sidewalk.

    I ride motorcycles and lane splitting is just another technique. Legal in CA.
    Hope to participate in some MB races if there are any upcoming in SoCal... Racing is always the best testbed for new machines. Working on the new drive system right now...

    Keep you guys updated!

    just about everyone goes a little nuts on their bikes. i'm legally registered, have an M2 license, but i ride my bike at 45+, so i'm breaking the law.

    "glass houses" comes to mind when i read the other comments.

    every vehicle i've ever owned, i broke the law with, be it a skateboard, car, or glorified moped.

    my point was to make sure your a$$ was covered after the buyer left with your product.

    bottom line is, the end user has to be responsible for his own actions. you may be selling him the gun, but he decides where he points it.

    when i watched your video, i thought the same thing, that you're lookin' for a ticket, or a crash, but i'm not you. people are gona do whatever they want anyway, but as a business, you gotta CYA.

    my advice? build a bike that does 50+, market is as an alternative transportation vehicle, and show a little more responsibility in your videos. quote the actual laws, add a disclaimer.

    like all "racing" parts for any motor vehicle, they come with a "this product may not..." sticker.

    bolting a 9hp motor to a walmart bike ain't much different than blowing nitrous outta your honda civic...

    If they want to build a 50 mph let it be.I am shure they have a business permit in their town,a state tax number,a fed tax number,a permit to manufacture a motor vehicle so a vin number can be added.and lots of insurance.Good luck with your new business i hope you sell all you can build.

    He did not endanger anybody compared to you cutting through cars. Nobody was terrorized. Well besides the back siderotfl Far as I can tell if you can just find some more examples of something hayness perhaps this sorta thing should be perfectly exceptionable? Your just a swell guy after all! Gee what was I thinking?

    I don't think one can cut through traffic anywhere like you did on any motorcycle and be deemed legal...Sir...
