    Tanaka 2-stroke engines are EPA Approved and C.A.R.B Certified for 300 Hours, and their Purefire versions have a real Catalytic Converter. Please give me credit for 1) being nice about this 2) knowing what I'm talking about and 3) not buying your typical reasoning for breaking the Law. Safety first? That's why these contraptions are limited, BECAUSE if it's Safety First and you need more than the Law allows, you need to be on a real vehicle and pay your way like every other motorist on the road. Safety first? I use moped-level headlight & taillight, including a brake-light, full time whenever I'm on the road, and I wear a DOT helmet. I could go on, but I'm pretty sure you're going to delete these comments anyway because they do not go along with your personal agenda. research what h...see more »Tanaka 2-stroke engines are EPA Approved and C.A.R.B Certified for 300 Hours, and their Purefire versions have a real Catalytic Converter.

    shoot, brother, man up and leave the link, you're correct to advise people to research for themselves, we're ad-free so it's not about clicks. remove my comments, which I don't care one way or the other about, plus that's your right. I said what needed saying, you heard me, you didn't like it, but I was right. it's not the first time, won't be the last.it is nice work, but a waste of talent, in my very experienced opinion.

    I rarely participate on the interthing, outside of my small free forum. thank you for addressing legality, phooey on those who only want to argue about it. you included a link to our forum's "List of Gov't Sites" and this is an open invite to anyone interested to browse our membership's legal versions nationwide.I too am in Oregon, and have built a 32cc/750W hybrid that recharges the batteries when under gas power. of course all legal in Oregon, designed that way on purpose. before Oregon, I spent the better part of 3 years actually living on the bike.if I had anything to say about legality here, it would be that posting online that the local cops aren't bothering you is a sure way to be bothered by the cops. trust me, I've been at this a long time, I'm not just saying it, I'v...see more »I rarely participate on the interthing, outside of my small free forum. thank you for addressing legality, phooey on those who only want to argue about it. you included a link to our forum's "List of Gov't Sites" and this is an open invite to anyone interested to browse our membership's legal versions nationwide.I too am in Oregon, and have built a 32cc/750W hybrid that recharges the batteries when under gas power. of course all legal in Oregon, designed that way on purpose. before Oregon, I spent the better part of 3 years actually living on the bike.if I had anything to say about legality here, it would be that posting online that the local cops aren't bothering you is a sure way to be bothered by the cops. trust me, I've been at this a long time, I'm not just saying it, I've seen it.clearly, you have the skills, so why NOT explore legal options? you'd be amazed at what you can get out of a quality utility engine.

    you used our link, which I must say is why we maintain it, and we share it unconditionally, as a public service. but some of your discussion invited other views. who better to address them but someone who has more time and miles in than you? I can love your bike but not love your attitude about the bike. in my case it isn't about personal agenda, but about a greater good. it wasn't my intent to go any further than to say "if you post on a public site that you know the bike's illegal but the cops don't bother you, then you have started the chain of events that will lead to a cop having no choice but to shut you down." you started the debate, believing your reasoning as a worthy excuse. it just isn't though. you have mad skills, but are still too young to ken my drift...if you g...see more »you used our link, which I must say is why we maintain it, and we share it unconditionally, as a public service. but some of your discussion invited other views. who better to address them but someone who has more time and miles in than you?
