Id give him a break on this one. He rides a motorcycle, he's one of us in that respect. And he's middle of the road politically. Sure he's a rich ???? but he's a rich ???? who rides. And he's still the terminator. Give him a break I say.

Re: Governinator won't be cited for lack of bike endorsement.
 
Looked it up. I fail to see where in 12804.9 it mentions specifically that a "motorcycle with a sidecar attached" does not still constitute a "motorcycle".



Using the "two-wheeled motorcycle" excuse is a pathetic attempt to skirt the law, and would never pass muster in front of a judge, especially as 12804.9 specifically describes both "two-wheeled motorcycle" and "motor-driven cycle".



The Governator should take his lumps like the rest of us, unless of course, he's too much of a "girly-man" to do so...

He'll want to bend you over and pump you up for that remark.

Here's what it says in the California Motorcycle Handbook (1MB PDF, see page 4):

<blockquote>LICENSE REQUIREMENTS



California issues the following license classes for two-wheel vehicle operation:

<ul>[*]Class M1—You may operate any two-wheel motorcycle or motor-driven cycle and all vehicles listed under Class M2.


[*]Class M2—You may operate any motorized bicycle or any bicycle with an attached motor.


[*]Class C —You may operate a motorcycle with a sidecar attached, a three-wheel motor-cycle, or a motorized scooter.

<ul></blockquote>

Class C is a regular driver's license required to drive a car. The qualifier "two-wheeled" was used in 12804.9 specifically to exclude trikes and sidecars from the requirement for an M1.
