Well I've been here a week and im hooked. While planning my MB I figured I'd join the revolution. I just sent my first letter to my state representative a few minutes ago. Let me know what you think so I can improve upon it before sending it the all of my state legislators. I'm willing to fight the good fight and actually enjoy it so any ideas or input from the group would help. My letter: Hello Dennis, I'll be as quick and to the point as I can. There is a mode of transportation that is inexpensive, cheap to operate(200+ MPG) but are considered illegal in Ohio by the current written laws. They are "power assisted bicycles". A small gas engine that mounts to the bicycle to help in the peddling process. They fit almost any stansard bicycle. As current law is written these are now considered illegal unregisterable MOPEDS, they are far from that though. These kits by Federal guidlines are legal and legal in many other states incuding California to the latest state of Arizona who just legalized them. These can be of great benifit to many ohioans who cant afford or do not need a automobile. We need to make these bicycles legal. They are not toys. I would be happy to provide you with any information needed to gain your support on this issue. With the poor economy, high costs of gas and deminishing quality jobs this mode of transpotation could be invaluable to many people including myself. Thank you for your time.
