Motorcycles are usually classified separately from other vehicles. Ask questions here about the special rules and laws that apply to operating these two-wheeled vehicles.

Yes, anything over 49cc is considered a motorcycle.
I have know idea what your asking me because I'm only 10. Sorry. I  don't care how I got an account.
Harley davidsons with at least 1000 cc engine or bigger. They are constantly on the road so they almost always have a touring bike or a very comfortable softail.
If it's over 50cc, is registered, insured, and you have a  motorcycle license, then yes.
Just simple compressed air, available for free at any gas station.
  Every person who operates a motor vehicle on the highways of the State of Alabama must first secure a driver license.   Alabama law recognizes two classes of engine-equipped cycles:   1. Motorcycle is defined as a motor vehicle having a seat or saddle for the use of the rider and...
You can drive up to a 125cc. However depending on where you live in the UK you may need to take a basic motorcycle test.
Can you drive a scooter 50 CC in Philadelphia without licence and also without insurance. How would you get the scooter insured if you don't have a driver licence ?thanks 
  So long as you don't sit on it you should be OK but check with your local police dept as local bylaws vary so much.
A person from another motorcycle club can be contacted to get some  advice. Another club member can put you in touch with the right  person.
lafdkjslfndlsf n k lmfao
no you do not because motorcycle trackdays are a closed coruse  event and are not runed by the state
Only if it is street legal and registered. For example, you can legally drive a Honda metropolitan on any road except for the highway, but not a 50 cc goped.
Depends.Usually, for a bike to be road legal it has to be registered, insured, inspected, able to pass certain standards of noise, braking, lights and such.Any bike - regardless of engine size - that fulfil these requirements can be road legal.If it doesn't, then it isn't road legal.
  == Keep The Peace!!! ==   If A bike has 49cc you (should not have to have a license!!!)   Just like the State of oregon.
The short answer is 1500 pounds, from California's DMV's site:   ==== Motorcycle ====   400. (a) A "motorcycle" is any motor vehicle having a seat or saddle for the use of the rider, designed to travel on not more than three wheels in contact with the ground, and weighing less than 1,500...
The person who says it is letting it be know that he or she intends to take charge of their fate, and be the driver in the ride of life, not just a passenger.
You have to where a helmet because if you dont and you fall.. Guess whos gonna have a cracked head
This question would have approx. 50 answers, as it depends on which state that you live in. The only way to get the right answer is to call your state licensing agency, department of motor vehicles, etc. Some states for certain moving violations, consider all licenses suspended, whereas some states...
  No dummy. The 'M' endorsement goes on your drivers license.
A motorcycle helmet must meet DOT gauges to be legitimate for the  street, a snowmobile head protector does not.
 Pretty good in favor of crashing. You ride a dirt bike for the thrill which means you push your riding ability. Sooner or later it does catch up with you.
yes you do i think it takes longer to get a motorcyle license
That depends on where you are. States/provinces and municipalities decide whether or not a helmet is required.
In California it is legal to wear a bikini while wearing a bike. Wearing a bikini is required if you live within 100 feet of me.
Not without some additional lights and safety add ons. You will have to see the DMV and ask for form 885 and that will list all required add on items you will be inspected for.
Yes i believe you do if its a 200cc scooter
On some country you must be at least 18 years of age to drive off the road and you must have a Driver's License card.
  It will go about 55 mph!!
Do you need a license for dirt bikes
You will find the VIN number in the neck of the frame.. Engine number, the vin is on the neck but as a dirt bike it may not have an engine #

Motorcycle helmets are important to protect the driver's head  during any injury. So, one should always choose a helmet that is  lightweight and crack resistant.
"You" don't make one. You buy one. "YOU" do not have the required skills or equipment to make a motorcycle helmet which will provide any degree of protection in the event of a crash. If you are going to make your own helmet then you might as well not even wear one.
  it could be depending on the state you live in. some states have a height requirement for bikes.
AnswerYes you can. You don't even have to be an adult to ride a scooter. (Any kind of scooter, from push to gas.) In Australia you need a current motor cycle license to ride a motor scooter on a public roadI was answering as if the person who asked the question lived in the United States. Sorry if...
Legally, I don't know. Still, it is a good idea to wear one any ways. Legally, the answer is yes you must wear a DOT or Snell approved helmet.
You need to be at least 4 or 5. A good bike for 4 and 5 year olds would be an 50cc. From 8 to 11 a jr80 or crf80 would be good. from 10, 11 and 12 something like crf100s or cr80s.
yes you can but it would be quite a bumpy ride!
depend in the state that you live. in new-jersey anything that is gonna be in the street need plates and registration.. what a rip off.
I often wondered myself. Jayne Mansfield, Princess Grace, were automobile accident victims- both from Philadelphia area. I am sure by some sort of law of averages- some young lady in filmdom died in a motorcycle accident- but cannot recall any offhand. an interesting, if morbund question.
Safer for you, yesFor others depends on if u drive well
Depends on where you live... I don't know of any state in the U.S. that requires it.
can u ride a 49cc gas scooter on the road without Georgia operatator licences
15, but u have to pass a test at the secretary of state...
NONE! You must be of Drivers License age in your state, to ride a street bike, or moped. You must atleast have a moped permit to even drive a scooter, or any other Gas/Electric powered vehicle on Public Highways.
Personnally, I donn't know but you can try www.dmv.org. Indeed you do. As in most states, a moped is any vehicle up to 50cc. Any larger and you have a scooter. In SC, you do not need a moped license if you have any other type of license, regardless of it's status. A moped is known as a liquor-cycle...
There is no one answer to this, it will depend on if the bike is imported, age, and type... for example if the bike is a new import, and has a ground clearnce of 30cm+, and a set height of 90cm+ then it can be registered for road use as an enduro (the DVLA may wish to inspect it, but you will only...
The following documents will need to be submitted to the Local Office:   • form V55/4 or if appropriate V55/5. V55/4 is for "brand new" vehicles, V55/5 is for "used" vehicles  • appropriate Identity Documentation confirming your name and address  • a £55 registration fee (if...
I don't think so. You have to be 15 to drive one after you get your licence.
just wear a helmet. The Ga. department of moter vehicles and the Ga state law states that a moter scooter or moped that has a moter that is 50cc and under, DOSE NOT REQUIRE A GA DRIVERS LISENCE.
In the UK, a Quad bike can be used on the road as long as it:    has met the standards outlined by the Road Vehicles  (Construction and Use) Regulations 1986 and is approved by DVSA  (Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency) to be used on the road, and   is registered with the DVLA (Driver and...
No, there will not be any coverage for the son as he was not listed on the policy and not paid the premium.(The coverage is for accidental damages to the driver).Bhanu
In the states of Florida and Georgia the answer is no. It's not illegal . However you insurance ( required in ga) probably won't pay for an accident if they found out that you were found at the scene of the crash shirtless. Don't be stupid wear all of you riding gear all the time . You should have...
Aw yea, hit up your DMV, ill be doing it tomorrow :)
there is no law against it, weather and road conditions would be the deciding factors.
yes with a driver license
Yes. that includes other motor cycles.
Dr. Steven Kiley rode a Triumph Bonneville
25... you can miss four and still pass!
I think so. My brother had two and said the police will only stop you if you did'nt wear a helmet. Plus there was a shop on the corner where tons of people got theirs at. The cpos went after the ones without a helmet and fined them. Everyone else was legally riding theirs.
yes you need a moped lisense in all states You have to be 15
Yes, as long as you have a Class C license and insurance. The moped must be registered and must be under 50cc and under 1.5 brake HP. "Mopeds do not require an inspection during the registration process, but you will need to provide proof of insurance, and a current valid Class C driver's license."...
If you use a bicycle speedo/cyclocomputer you get all you need in one neat package. Just make sure you enter the right values for wheel circumference.
  By dirt bike do you mean a petrol (gasoline) powered bike?   If so you need to be 16 years old to ride a moped (not exceeding a 55cc engine and a speed no faster than 50km/h)   To ride any other types motorcyle it's 17 years old for bikes not exceeding 33bhp, and 21 for any size...
The police can roadside check with the DVLA to see if one has been issued and, if so, you will be given a week to produce it at a police station. If you have not obtained a CBT or it has run out you will get points on your licence. If you do not have a licence, the points will be kept until you do....
It depends on which country you're in and what type of motorcycling you're doing, i.e. on road, off-road. You can pick up second hand helments cheaply, but if you value your life, you shouldn't touch these as you do not know anything about their history, such as whether they've been dropped (this...
4 states touch North Carolina.South Carolina, Georgia, Tennessee, and Virginia
Ive read and been told both that once the helmet has been dropped on a hard surface, you need to replace it. I would say if you have dropped it many times from a substantial level on a hard surface, its probably a good idea to replace the helmet. IF you have cracks anywhere replace it. If you are...
In Minnesota it is legal for a 16 year old to get a motorcycle  license. The minor must possess a valid driver's license and take a  motorcycle safety course.
There could be a couple of things. First, if it is cold outside it is very difficult to start and keep running until warm (I own one, they are very cold blooded. Mine takes 5 minutes to get started when its under 50 degrees). Second, it could be the fuel valve not allowing enough fuel into the...
Yes you can ride motorbike as well as car on full car licence
  In UK every motorcycle used on the road is required to have insurance.
It depends on what year it is, it will be either 1 down 5 up or 1down 4 up
Yes you do, however there is one exception. Chapter 11 page 166 on the NJ motorcycle Manual states: According to New Jersey law, a motorcycle can be a motor bike, a bicycle with a motor attached or any motor-operated vehicle of the bicycle or tricycle type, except for a motorized bicycle. The...
Bicycle lanes are not intended for motorised vehicles, so it doesn't matter how old or young you are - it's still illegal. The only exception is vehicles with very weak/small engines, like some bikes with "assist" engines and maybe some scooters/mopeds. But a dirt bike is too powerful to fit into...
Either a single injector in the inlet manifold or, more normally, in the cylinder head(s), one per cylinder.
Depends on the country
