    I'm looking to buy a electric bike (perhaps one that folds like the DAHON ROO EL) OR a nice electric scooter....

    Wondering what the law restrictions are with these things and what I have to do to be STREET LEGAL. Anything? It's so hard to find info online on this and I really am too lasy to call anywhere to find out so any help appreciated!

  2. for electric, as long as you're wearing a helmet and stay off public roads. gas-powered is another story.

    Hmmm....how about gas powered? I'm not totally against the idea, just don't know as much about the different gas models....What is the LA law concerning those? Anyone know? Thanks.

    I roll on an electric scooter to work, I usually sport a helmet, but cops have let me be.
