Seems a bit stupid but who is to say?

The tricky thing on the around town / commuting type mopeds is that there's a huge range of them. Some are basically bicycles with a motor assist, and are fine on most bike paths. Some are basically motorcycles that may or may not actually have pedals and are capable of highway speeds. Those things definitely should not be in the bike lanes. There's little, if any regulation of any of them, and even if there was, enforcement is problematic because they all look somewhat similar.

So it pretty much gets left up to the rider to make an intelligent choice as to where and how to ride them. And that works exactly as well as you'd expect it to.
