Pedal-assist bikes such as the Levo, Haibike and others are not "self-propelled" and are outside of the definition of "motor vehicle" as set forth in the letter. Under the letter, e-bikes that are throttle operated or can otherwise be operated without pedal assist, fall within the definition. Pedal-assist bikes, which are not self-propelled, are not "ebikes" under the definition set forth in the statute.

Good luck with that in Federal Court, I'm sure the Judge will be thoroughly impressed with your knowledge of federal law.

Read it again. Actually, I don't think you've read it yet.

That's not how the statement reads. According to the USFS, if it has a battery, it's motorized (assuming the document is authentic).

Read the definition...no mention of battery in the definition of "motorized vehicle."

I'm sure a judge would, given that I am a lawyer...
Well, you are certainly acting like one. There is a reason lawyers are some of the most disliked people, I believe even more than used car salesmen from what I've read. Don't you have an ambulance to chase?

You mean "acting like one" because of my reading comprehension? Or by understanding what laws and regulations actually say? If that's what you mean by "acting like one", I'll take it.
