Question State Laws for Hacks

Is there such a thing, or do you just follow the guidelines for motorcycles? I was looking at the AMA page that lists all the motorcycle laws by state and saw nothing mentioned for bikes with sidecars. Are there any laws for lights, reflectors, size, etc.

I'm wanting to build an off-road/utility style hack for my EX500 when school starts back up this fall and want to make sure I'm within any laws that may govern this sort of thing before I start and find out I should have done something differently.

All sidecars must use headlight modulators...

In North Carolina, if you have over a certain number of passengers, they require seperate bathrooms for men and women.

Rather than post the question here, I would check with the DMV in your state - that's who you have to answer to.
