Well, I spent a few hours at the DMV today...what joy.
I had to take my written, register the /motorized bicycle/motor driven cycle/scooter/motorcycle/whatchamacallit.
The kind lady behind the counter was befuddled as to what it was and went for a consult three or four times and finally came back telling me I'd have to bring it in for them to check VIN and look at it to determine emissions!
OMG! DMV doesn't get it yet. OK, not really surprised.
Anyway, I kept hinting that it probably should be a motorcycle(so I could ride in 45mph+ zones), and she kept saying, moped, moped, and I kept saying no pedals, no pedals, scooter, motorcycle, no-ped.
Alas, repetition failed me; my hypnotistic career is over, I guess.
So, the question is; has anyone registered a 3500 successfully in California and what did yours end-up being clasified as?
Title says Motor Driven Cycle.
I only disclosed it was electric when she cornered me with questions.
I'm know I DON'T want it clasified as a motorized bicycle(under 30mph), and I'm hesitant to mention to them it'll almost do 50mph.
What's the collective wisdom out there.
I go back in Friday A.M.
It can only be a Motorcycle or a Motor-Driven cycle(<149cc) from my read of the definitions.
