Dear "mrspidy",

Trust me, I know the laws in CA, you do need a class M2 license to

ride a

moped in california. You also need a DOT certified helmet and

insurance.

If you read the hand book carefully it will say this under vehicle code

(406a), not VC(406b), which is a motorized bicycle. Please change the

information listed on your sell. Thanks.

From: mlspidy@san.rr.com

That is true for moped that

A. either has no pedals and

B. engine size is greater than 50cc

C. is governed to 30 mph of a flat surface

My bike meets all of the requirements.

You need to read the real law not the hand book.

The handbook only generalizes the total law.

This information was provided to my from the DMV web site.

Not the Book Has you have read.

No class M2 license req.

No insurance Req.

No Helmet if your over 18

You better do your homework if your going to give people advice.
