    Welcome to the forum. I visited Galway a few years back, but I think I stayed in Oranmore. I didn't find my roots but found some great pubs.

    Met my ex-wife at The Quays back in 1996. She's back in her native Australia and I'm back in in my native Connecticut! Glad to hear that the Guardai are lenient; although I live in Connecticut, where MBs are legal, I spend a good amount of time in New York, where it's not. NY Cops have been very cool about it over the past year; no problems at all. My family has some land up near the Mayo/Roscommon boarder; I visit like once a decade and am due for another. I was considering having a MB on my next visit and was curious about their legality.

    as far as i know from trying to find out myself its the fact that the motor can only assist that makes them legal i.e. you can't be able to take off from a standstill and it can't have a pullstart or electric start, and it should be under 50cc and unable to exceed 20 something mph on a flat i think its 27 but not certain!

    i'm not telling you these are the actual laws as i don't actually know and have never been stopped on it yet (touch wood) although one day i was going WOT around a corner only to see a squad car coming towards me, i just cut the engine and pedalled on , if i wasn't banned from driving i would have kept going flat out!

    Ive not been on here in a while but have been using bike daily. cruising along at 33 km/h flying up hills, and nearly afraid to say it no problems for the last six months, compared to first six what a difference, I just installed a new rechargeable light, wow what a difference, I will be communting to work on unlit roads , so with new light, oncoming cars dip lights from a far distance, I cant rate this light but can say 5 stars,
