    at the worcester MA summernationals you needed a motorcycle license to drive them on their little test track, so i would assume so. its a little quirky but fun.

    I would imagine you would. Its more than likely over your states CC limits and is considered a motorcycle.

    If I had to get something like that I would definitely get a T-rex, those things are sick.

    If it helps at all, when I went to take my bike test, there was one leaving from the testing center. I figured it was the same as a trike endorsement? Because here, you get points taken off for putting your foot down on the test, do it twice, and you fail. If you can get your motorcycle license with this thing, it'd be pretty lame, almost like doing maneuverability without cones.

    trex is more enclosed
    def not the same type of feeling

    but bikes are really all about the lean
    i would not buy one of these, but i am sure they have their selling points
    i would def get on if i lost a leg in an accident....
    fucking knock on wood for that comment

    That is a good point. I didnt think of that. And the Ruckus is amazing.

    I know a guy who's wife bought one so she could go with him when he rides his bike. That is the exact application I assumed it was for: a motorcycle-like safer alternative for women.

    can am

    yes you need a motorcyle license to drive one they are considered motorcyles my wife was gonna get one and then looked at the price of 18k in my opinion not worht it but it is a 990 which is preetty big. they are fun to ride but i do not like how it has only one brake pedal as all the brakes are on on pedal so its kinda gay no stoppies or anything but they are fun to toy with. if you love snowmobiling then you will love this its a snowmobile on wheels. they can do burnouts. very well my buddy owns one. cant do wheelies. handle great. very comfortable on long trips. huge lugagge compartment under seat. over i give it 9 out of 10

    :withstupid: Easy as hell here in Ohio. Hell, I'm shooting for everything I can. You never know when shit's gonna hit the fan and you're gonna have to gank a plane Bond style ;) Thus far, I can drive: Car, Motorcycle, Trike, any straight bodied truck, with any number of axles weighing at least, but not limited to 26,000lbs, with or without air brakes, and hauling well over 16 people (I believe my max so far is 70 is a 40 foot bus :D I still need Boat, Combination vehicle, and Aircraft (may come later hopefully) including helical (probably not going to happen.)
