Some people pursue this because of the lesser safety restrictions, but you should already know that.
Autocycle, not motorcycle. There's a pretty big difference. But you should already know that.

Cali Doesn't enjoy that classification, last I looked otherwise there would be hundreds of harley trike mods being listed as cars.
casual notes from the underground:There are some "experts" out there that in reality don't have a clue as to what they are doing.

Yep a year later they were begging for 50 million dollars to start production. Somehow they grifted a few million dollars and that was enough to probably start production.

I did not see that coming. More likely Anarcho-capilalism?

While the half-body-of-revolution argument rages in other threads. Aptera is the only one to instantiate Morelli's aeroform.
