What will the U.S. motorcyclists ride?
The United States has an unusual set of rules when it comes to the type of motor vehicles it requires of its cyclists.
The U.K. and Canada also require some modifications to motorcyclist rules, but not all of them.
Here are some of the more common rules, with an explanation of why.1.
Cyclists must use an approved “motor vehicle” when operating on a highway.
Motorcycles must have an approved motorcycle license plate, but don’t have to carry a valid license plate.2.
Cyclist must carry a helmet.
If you are wearing a helmet, wear it on the head and not on your face.
The helmet must be attached to your helmet with a secure closure, and there must be a safety strap to keep your helmet securely on.3.
Cycles must use a U.C.S.(MVA) motorcycle registration number.
Motorcycle registrations are required by the U-K.
to be carried on a helmet or a shoulder harness.
U.N. rules also require motorcycles to have a registration number in their possession.4.
Cyclers must wear a reflective helmet.
Cyclocross racers must use reflective helmets for the first two years of their career, and for every two years thereafter.5.
Cyclicross riders must wear an approved helmet.
For the first five years of the sport, riders must have a helmet with at least one eye shield.
However, the number of times a rider must wear their helmet is limited to the number required by a U-S.
Department of Transportation rule, which is two (2) times per year.6.
Cyclical equipment must be at least 12 feet long and weigh less than 4,000 pounds.7.
Cyclcyclists must wear helmets.
The first time a U, M, or E helmet is worn, a rider is required to wear the helmet for five (5) years.
A rider who fails to wear a helmet within that time period is subject to a $100 fine and/or a ban from riding the motorcycle in the United States.8.
Cyclones must have “safety” devices, like air bags, brake pads, and other safety features.
These are required to prevent crashes in the event of an accident involving a motorcyclic or moped.
