Post Lower Mainland B.C. Scooter Restrictions on Hwy
I often ride Lougheed Hwy which is anywhere between 60-80km/h, and depending on the time of day that can be sketchy if you cannot keep up (only throttle mod till now). As we all know the average speed it usually 10-20+ km/h the posted limit.

Just wonder if any of you local scooter maniacs go on the Hwy 99 or Hwy 1 with your scoot?

It's probably not a good idea unless you have a min BBK, pipe, upgears, etc.... but if you're capable of hitting 80/90km/h do you ride on those highways?

The only restriction I can see posted is on any Hwy with a >70km/h limit; those have a sign on the entrance saying something to the effect of: vehicles, bicycles, tractors, etc..... not capable of going above 60 km/h are prohibited.

Thoughts or experiences?

I ride lougheed as well. I plan to go on the faster highways as well when I get better tires and suspension. The bigger scooters ride them often.
