I was researching motorcycle laws in different states and compiled a list of Motorcycle Operator Manual's for each of the 50 states.

If you are a new rider looking to obtain your license or a seasoned rider wanting to learn the laws of a state that you will be traveling through these manuals may be helpful to you.

There is also a good Manuel that the Motorcycle Safety Foundation has published that is not state specific.

Since I had these all together I thought that I would share them.

Thanks for the Information.

We travel to Vermont often, so I took a quick look at their booklet and found this paragraph:

"You have full use of the traffic lane, but two motorcycles or mopeds shall not be operated beside each other in the same lane of traffic."

I personally never ride side by side with anyone...I want an emergency route out of a situation should it arise. But, I can see a lot of riders I know could run into a problem and a fine by doing this. I see bikers riding like that here in Ontario all the time, now I wonder if it's illegal here too! I'll try to find out.

We're never too old to learn.

This is really useful, maybe you could ask the mods to move it to the Ref and FAQ section.Up north we don't need it now, but we will in a couple of months.

Nice going Big E

Might want to move this great resource to the Reference section as it would benefit many folks.

Ride Safe, Ray
