so the more I'm thinking about these laws the more I realize that there are some great things about this. and there are some terrible things about this. its not going to kill mopeds in Maryland by any means. but it sure will change a lot. I probably would still be going to Volkswagen shows. and dropping all my money into my old Scirocco, if Tags Title Reg and Insurance were required for mopeds when I first got into them a few years back. because that was a HUGE appeal to me. the fact that it was this great toy i could drop a few bucks on, and go and have fun. this kind of takes away from the whole "toy" feeling of owning a moped, when you know you are going to have to deal with the MVA and insure and title and blah, blah, blah. also now that I have become obsessed with mopeds and own 10+. a lot of them projects. ALL of them without titles. only because the titles never existed.... so, do I pay hundreds of dollars to get these frames and projects titled in their window of time? will I even be able to title a non titled moped after their window of time? this is where I know I will be stressing out in the future. I know the MVA is going to make this process extremely difficult. even if you are lucky enough to get someone who knows what moped is. then you need to convince them that they are supposed to just GIVE you a title for a bike that you can't prove otherwise is your property. even if that is what they are supposed to do. I know the person there is going to fight you about it. and I have a feeling the way that this is going to go down, just because the MVA has these requirements for everything else. is that if you want a title you need to provide a "receipt of origin". which is close to impossible for our 40 year old bikes. so we are screwed if they require that. which I think there is a large possibility that they will. because how else are we supposed to prove that we own these bikes. the MVA does not run on trust. I don't even know what I'm supposed to do about my bike. my daily driver bikes is a Tomos. that I bought a super junky frame for $20 and built up and engine for. but it is so junked up and re-painted and dented. that neither of the vins are readable. so I guess I could never have that bike legal? the ONLY good thing that comes out of this is that if your bike is stolen then you have a pretty easy connection to go get it out of impound for $275. at least you get it back. cause the way things are now. you're just not getting it back. honestly I think you could ignore all these laws and ride your moped for another 3-4 years without getting bothered. but that only applies to the Baltimore City area. none of those people riding dubs on a 250 down 83 with no shirts or shoes are going to listen to these laws. or even know they exist. i don't think its going to change a thing in Baltimore City. and when you ride through, the last thing the cops are going to care about is some hipster with a full face helmet, on a contraption from the 1970s going 30mph obeying traffic laws. the people who are really going to get screwed is all you upper MD folks. where the good ol boy cops are ultra bored, and trying to make their revenue cap. either way Ed is right. blast this summer and have fun and we will only know when they release the rest of the details. because in those details is what is going to really screw things up/ make them better. ok my rants is over....
