Basically the way I read it keep it under 50cc and max speed is less than 30MPH and it will be treated like a bicycle moped. I am taking ours to Ruidoso, I know they rent the little scooters, under 50cc and no license is required. My research says the same applies to motorized bicycles. If not, the local cop shop is about a mile from our house, but the jail is at Carrizzozo. But no problem my wife will find me.
