crf50 on sidewalks?

is this legal or no....wouldn't it fall under the same category as a toy from walmart?

what is the worst that could happen? guy down the road called the cops on me, they drove by and saw me riding by my house on the sidewalk but didn't say anything nor stop.

I went back down the road again with my son on the back, and he video recorded me for "proof"

Technically not legal, the term is "driving on sidewalk". Also could be considered "not road legal vehicle on street". Personally, the popo, they've got bigger fish to fry then some people on a mini bike in the neighborhood. worst that could happen, cops come out give u ticket.

thought so, once I get my wheelies down I'll ride a few by his house hah

it's not in a neighborhood either btw....not in a traditional sense that most people here are probably use to. it's a long main road and we are the only house not in a neighborhood for about 10-15 blocks. It has a long sidewalk...some runners in the afternoon but I always pull over and let them pass if I happen to be riding. I've passed a few cops before and they haven't stopped or said anything yet. (prior to this guy) and still not even after.

My neighbors have gotten used to me riding wheelies down the road on my plethora of minis, if people have an issue with it an your bit creating a safety hazard they should get a life . But yeah you CAN get a few tickets for it.

better yet, get those one handed wheelies down, pass by and flick him off.

A ticket on a sidewalk is cheaper than a ticket on the road.
Most sidewalks in my hood look like a ghost town cuz these kids would rather play on their Xbox. ..../end rant
Lol
