A harley/rice-rocket, any other moto will always, ONLY, be a motorcycle, an MAB can be a bicycle or motorcycle.As someone else said, they are 2 different things. I have a 200cc dual sport motorcycle that costs next to nothing to register and insure, keeps up with traffic easily in town, and will cruise at 65 mph on the highway.
I ride a motorized bicycle because I have always liked riding bicycles, but can no longer pedal any distance due to a disability. Motorized bicycles can legally be ridden in the bike lanes (though the spandex crowd doesn't like it) as long as the engine is no more than 48cc, and top speed is limited to 20 mph (I usually ride closer to 10 mph) I can easily ride my motorized bike 100 miles or more. I am seriously considering investing in building a shifter bike, so I can ride up in the mountains.
But neither a small dual sport, nor a motorized bicycle is going to replace my Harley-Davidson Road King. They all have their place.
mmmm, girls on racks... or with emMan, I miss those girls who would sit on the rack of your bicycle and actually enjoy it!
They don't seem to exist in North America, at least not past the age of 16.
During my motorcycle lessons, they had me ride several different machines, the 'chopper' type (Yamaha-something) was way too heavy and clumsy, and the position you're in while riding may look cool and comfortable, but it's not. No wonder all the Harley guys have to stop every 20 miles or so to smoke another joint - they're in pain!
