    Now I'm confused!,
    so's you can't have an un-restricted moped?,
    thought a moped is only needing to be reclassified ,as a
    motorcycle due to engine capacity (say 49."?cc +1-4 rebores)- and
    you increase it beyond that capacity an not due to power output.,
    I think? :eek:

    Moped can't have an engine capacity larger than 49cc and cannot exceed speeds of 30mph.

    Regardless of engine power if a scoot exceeds speeds of 30mph in the eyes of the law its a motorcycle not a moped

    Experience has taught me,
    you can get away with alot an over time you
    tend to develop a bit of overconfidence/indifference
    tp worrying about whatever conditions you may be
    riding under-
    But there's always that one a.....e around the corner
    an it can be a real unpleasant moment coming out of
    the blue. :(.

    this is the one I refer to, the police around here are ok, but there is always one, who gives the force bad press.

    There will always be a grievance from your average joe against anyone
    that holds a bigger stick against you,
    especially if they're part of some societal institution-
    generally it's only in time you come to realise irregardless
    they are on essence a neccessary evil,
    It's the ones who seem to operate in some part from a personal
    agenda you could have the misfortune to encounter.

    None.
    got caught doing 40mph on one of my visions before, police officer was more interested in the age of the scooter, it was a "routine" stop apparently.
