    A bit pricey but the quality is there. Not a speed demon at all but still a lot of fun.

    I think in Mass. you're okay but in Alabama I found out the hard way that it was considered a motorcycle. Check your laws.
    Be Honest and Fear Not.

    Also consider an electric motor, instead of gas. They're not as powerful as gas engines, but at least you don't have to buy gas!
