It says Body Type - MC, so I think that's a regular bike. IIRC a moped has to have pedals in Ohio. Also, while looking at the title, it's a 1988.

My brother in law says he preferred a Mossberg 500 12ga for that work, 18.5" barrel and long mag tube. Even if scared to death the likelihood that you'll hit something (or one) went up considerably.
