A biker in Devon? Don't happen to patrol the promenade in EX8 of a friday night, do you? I used to hang out with the local scooter-riding kids when I lived there as a teenager... still intending to come back for a scenic blast over Dartmoor in summer.

Exmouth seafront is, or at least was, the place to hang out for bikers when I lived there, but as I say mostly teenagers on scooters.

To answer your first question I think this page is the one you want.  B1 is for quads, which don't seem to have the power/weight ratio restriction that bikes do.  I have a B1 on my car license so I assume they come "for free" with a non-provisional license- check the back of your photocard.  You're probably familiar with the two year 33bhp restriction, but I don't think that affects riding quads if you have the B1 entitlement.

That does limit you from riding anything with a jet or rocket engine strapped to it.

. Statutes vary widely - contact your local DMV (or equiv).
