    My first bike was a Qurve. I bought it from Spookytooth cycles. Great ride but I got hit from behind by a truck that was doing 40 mph. Now the local pd want to give me a citation. I checked with the dmv before purchasing the bike but I should have gotten it in writing. I live in Sulphur Louisiana. If anyone knows anything about the laws here pertaining to MB please share your knowledge with me? Thanks.

    link to LA state MB laws

    You might check with a motorcycle lawyer or if you have any cops in your family maybe they can also inquire for you. (just calling and asking the cops pretty much gives them a reason to stop you and maybe ticket...go figure.)

    There is a lot of gray area in USA on motored bicycles. But there are also some locations that have definite laws esp if the local gov. hates mbs or wants to tax/fine you to death.

    You also probably have no help in court if you get hit either. MB's should be revered but mostly are snubbed in USA.
