Maryland didn't require the light on when the wipers were on, and I
thought it was important.
Kept meaning to write my state reps.
They introduced and passed it anyhow.
Then I found when there was enough light afaict and light rain, I
That's the one good thing abou tthe Toyota, which I bought soon after.
I think my first motorcycle was a 1971. It ran with light on.
I think the dimmer switch was mounted right on top of the headlight.
I thought daytime running lights were going to be required here
in the U.S. too. I had a company pickup with DRL. 96 GMC maybe.
I don't know if fuel mileage requirements put a stop to it but that
pickup was the only one I've had with them.

The scooter does not belong to this kid. Before you spend a lot of time
and money fixing the scooter find the owner and get ownership of it. Finding
something does not make it yours once you reach the age of 10
If you can not find the VIN you may e-mail the manufacturer or their US
dealership. They'll know where the VINs are located.
it appears "Micky"
can't decide whether HE found the scooter:
"I found a small, gasoline-power scooter in the woods near my house
I called the police, and a car came prettyi quickly, and because it
doesn't have a VIN, the patroleman wasn't interested. i said, "Well,
even if doesn't have a VIN, I would think the owners want it back."
But he said if I didn't want it, they'd take it to a yard where it
woudl sit for months and if it didn't run, they'd junk it.
It doesn't run."
or, if the neighborhood *kid* found it:
"A neighbor kid found a scooter, a mini-bike, in the woods. He called
the police to report it, but and a patrol car came out soon after, but
the cop said that since it didn't have a VIN, they weren't really
interested, implied he could have it, and left without it. I offered
to help him fix it up."
I'm waiting for the THIRD version of the story (i.e., maybe the COP found
Or, maybe it's all a dream and there is NO scooter...
Good point. There are some other reasons to think it's abandoned, but
I'll look into it further.
It's a question on a take-home test I'm taking and I was hoping you
all would give me the answers.
If you must know, the OP in this thread was written almost a month
before I posted anything here about the scooter. Googling for info I
found webforums for motorcycles and scooters specifically, so I asked
the questions there. They probably do know more than the people
here, but webforums are so darn inconvenient, compared to newsgroups,
I didn't go back. By the time I posted here, the kid's parents had
decided it was too dangerous for him and too expensive to fix. About
$100 for parts, not counting body parts, if they can be found. So I
left him out of the post to shorten it.
Thanks, both of you.
