GG Quad North America, importers of the GG Quad, have a problem. As we noted before, the GG Quad is a great looking machine, the problem is you can’t drive it on the street. It’s already street legal in Europe, Japan, Russia and Dubai but not in the U.S. GG Quad North America has filed a petition with the NHTSA to allow a 4-wheel classification for a motorcycle vehicle license. They gave a demonstration in Washington, D.C. on June 13th and the committee has 120 days to make a decision.
I’ve wondered about these 4 wheelers before, some of them look like they would be perfectly capable of street operation, so why not? The GG Quad is a great example of a very streetable machine so it will be interesting to see what comes of this. Then we could import a Quadrazuma, too!
How can you help? If you send a letter to your congressman or senator and fax a copy to GG Quad, they’ll send you a GG Quad t shirt. Sounds like a plan, you get a t shirt and maybe you help get a new 4 wheel motorcycle classification in place.
