My wife and I are going to ride from Texas to the rally on our BMWs. Our 15 year old son is also planning to come with us, riding his Kawasaki Ninja 250cc. (Texas allows 15 year olds to ride 250cc motorcylces).
We were considering riding home via Canada to Niagara Falls and were researching any possible restrictions for Canada, when we found an age restriction for NY state. Apparently you have to be 16 to ride a motorcycle in NY state, even if you have a valid motorcycle permit from another state.
Does anyone know if this is true? Are there any other states on our route (TX, AR, TN, VA, WV, MD, PA, NY, VT) that have similar restrictions? Or does someone know where I can find out? I spent a few hours googling for information this evening but didn't get very far. If we minimize our distance in NY State we would then have to ride through CT and MA. Are there restrictions there?
Information on Canada would also be appreciated.
