Ok maybe this ain't the right thread for this but I couldn't think of nowhere else. Ok so I have my motorcycle permit at the moment, so Y'all probably no the restrictions of no passengers, freeway, or night riding. I've been rided without a motorcycle license on a 150 cc Scooter and Dirtbikes for a few years, but last summer I restored an 85 Honda Shadow 700 so I got it ridable so I took the MSC and took the permit test. Now I'm under 21 so I have to wait 6 months, well now a little less than 5 to get my Motorcycle License. Anyways I do my best and not break non of these rules, as hard as it is specially since I road for a while. But not a huge deal it ain't that long. But one question is if anyone is faimilar with California Highway 152 I ride on it to go towards Merced CA a bit. First I can't tell if its a Freeway or highway. 152 is mostly a highway but then you are on an onramp on 152 west and it looks an aweful lot like a freeway and has many onramps But there is houses with only access to it, like driveways right onto it, and some turnoffs without no ramps. So I think it ain't no freeway but then its divided and speed limit is 65 MPH. I though only Interstates can have 65 MPH speed limit, highways only up to 55 MPH. So anyone now if this is an expressway [I think I can ride on expressways?] or is it considered a Freeway? There is no green sign as far as I know that says Freeway entrance, or no signs that say bicycles Peds or Motordriven cycles prohibited, but I see CHP cars on it and I thought they usually only sit on Freeways mostly and theres State Police and I sure don't want to mess with that! Also I use google maps to plan my rides. But when I say avoid highway is this Freeway or just 2 lane highway? Cause it won't use this part even if I try make it, but it will use other parts 55 MPH of 152. Any clairifications or ideas would be appreciated. Also anyone around CA know of some good long rides without Freeway starting in the bay area? I'm thinking Highway 1 but it will suck cause I have to start in Santa Cruz to go to Half Moon Bay but if I go early I think I can manage. Thanks.
