So my 2 stroke Yamaha RZ is ok on MMP as long as I go at 20 mph? (Or my 6R?)

Do the 2 stroke carts have a kick start?

Nothing more fun then jumping up and down a few times to get it fired up...

Not sure what your link has to do with Velvet's question. The Yamaha RZ isn't a golf cart.

Velvet: Motor scooters or mopeds are *NOT* allowed on the multi-modal trails. It's for golf carts, bicycles, pedestrians, and in-line or roller skates. According to the memorandum dated 2010 from the District Counsel to the District Manager, Segways would also be permitted since the state treats them as bicycles and they aren't considered motorized vehicles. Skateboards and non-motorized scooters (basically a skateboard with a handle) aren't mentioned in the memorandum but I have yet to see anyone skateboarding anywhere in The Villages, let alone on the MMPs.

In a bunch of different articles and op-eds and random threads and arm-chair lawyer discussions, people claim there is no actual speed limit on the MMPs. But according to one article I saw in a google search the speed limit is 19.8mph. Keep in mind that the MMPs are not under police jurisdiction. They can't issue speeding tickets to violators on the MMPs. The community police might have other ideas though, so it's best to not test it. Plus it's considered bad form. Theoretically you could get a speeding ticket for riding your bicycle or roller skating on the public roads over 30 MPH.

I also didn't see anything about motorized wheelchairs, or electric scooters of the medical-need variety but I imagine they'd be allowed on the MMPs as well.

Jazuela is right. The RZ is a motorcycle. Sorry, of course I know, I can’t ride on the path.

Well than, that does it, if you have a 2 stroke golf cart, I am going to figure out how to build a diesel golf cart. It won't go over 19.9999 MPH.

Offered as an opportunity to learn what the speed limits are on the MMPs. Not sure what your comment had to do either.

Lets just make it easy and cull the heard, death penalty for anyone exceeding 22 mph in a golf cart.

And as far as the MMP's, they are private property and local law enforcement does not have jurisdiction...so why would they even think of issuing speeding tickets?
Actually, no, I didn't mean "Morse Blvd. MMP". Seriously, you've never driven on Morse Blvd. between 466 and 27/441? North of 466 most of the length of Morse Blvd. has no MMP, and you must drive in a bicycle/golf cart lane that shares the road with autos. It's not private property. There is occasionally a sheriff's deputy stationed there with a radar, but I've never seen one stop a cart.

I saw one stop a cart, but I don't think it was for speeding. There was a fender bender up near 441, it was last month. I was driving our cart south and saw it across the street. I watched the police car pull the cart over on the side road; the car in the accident was already stopped.
