Hmm... Does the size matter? Do you have lots of people commuting from Chigago to LA by car?

No point in arguing. Giving more money to the govt is a bad thing. Why go further?

I just went from a Ducati monster to a Burgman 650. I used to feel beat up after my 50mile ride to work - now I feel like I just got off the couch

I've been sticking 80cc motors in bicycles and getting "moped" licenses for them. Check it out at kingsmotorbikes.com.



Of course I didn't tell the DMV they were 80cc, told 'em 50cc. Hahahah. Also, Kingsmotorbikes is making a 100cc conversion. The 80cc one if geared right goes about 40 plus mph.



I've hardly ridden any of my "real" motorcycles for the last couple weeks. These bikes are a gas. 150 mpg to be exact.

Well, you still get 4-8 months use elsewhere. That's 4-8 month's less gas and wear & tear on your expensive car.

Yes but you can use bean oil which makes up for it.

"Less money to the other guys and more to our own governments. "



Er, how about neither. How about "more to the people who actually worked for it."

"When our American friends stop fooling around with oversized SUVs and trucks"



It's not "fooling around" in most cases. Because of child-seat laws, a third row is necessary if you have three or more young children (the US has a higher fertility rate than Europe.). Farmers need carrying & towing capacity. Etc, etc.

If they made these things to look like motorcycles from the early 1900's, I'd buy one.
