Still waiting for access...
I went ahead and sent an e-mail to help me get through the registration. I think it would be of mutual benefit to have them visit our site and talk to our community, discuss concerns from both ends. I would like to see everyone on the same side of the law, in both creating, abiding, and enforcing. It would be great if we could come up with a mutual set of laws throughout the 50 states that took care of everyones concerns (ours, our legislatures, and our law enforcement).
Here is what it said:
I registered to your site, and am still unable to post. I am an Engineer, not an officer but I do have the highest respect for officers and the laws. Your site was pointed out by a motoredbikes member (motor assisted bicyclist). I am eager to invite officers from your site to our forums, as many of the members seek to do things legally to avoid wasting both an officers time, and to avoid doing anything unsafe or illegal. There is specifically a forum for discussing motoredbiking laws and legislation. This forum is unique because laws regarding bicycles with assist engines vary from state to state. I hope you will permit me the opportunity to give a respectful invite to your officers (hopefully some will be willing to assist us in abiding by the laws and help us to determine what applies to our unique situations). I believe that officers would benefit to understand why people wish to pursue this manner of transportation (180 to 250MPG+, reduce foreign dependence upon oil, etc.), and that officers may have a unique perspective from which many of us in the community would benefit (safety concerns, etc.).
