Hey folks,
Anyone know what the legal minimum size of bike is required for freeway/highway use in Calif. I have been trying to find out, but get multiple responses, ranging from 150cc to 250cc. I'm looking to get a small bike just to putter around some of the backroads in my area, but, some freeway use will be required to get anywhere. Thanks for your time..

It's not so much the size of the motor...I've been on my 1958 Vespa (200c 2 stroke) across the Bay Bridge, up to Marin for long rides, etc. enough power to keep up - but its the size of the damn tires! My Vespa only has 8" tires, and hence doesn't get the stability that a larger moto tire does. The newer Vespa's have 12" tires and from what I hear they are pretty sweet on the freeway.

Cheers,
AK
