HEY! YouÂ’re alive!



Weren't you the one asking if you could hitch your boat to your KLR to move it around the side of your house?



We were wondering if you ended up pinned between the boat, the bike, and your house in some sort of twisted mess.

"maybe I should start riding it again" What a novel idea...ride your mtorcycle! Why didnt i think of that.? Spend your free time riding instead of surfing the net for inane redundant articles to bore us with. You may learn something if you ride a little.

I'm not promoting hydrogen. I'm a good old-fashioned drill it till it's gone petro oil guy.





Infrascture means delivery methods KP. Where can we get BioD now? Very few places, right? Do you think the oil companies are going to put up pumps at current gas stations out of benevolence? Or are you going to require the mighty fist of Gov't to require them to do so?



Considering it's biggest supporters are currently shopping at Lexus (which offers no diesel cars), I'd like to know who's going to lead this dramatic conversion?



Oh, the world's largest car market, California, has basically outlawed diesels.



Someday try to pop out of your theory bubble and live in the real world where the rest of us do.

"Oil shale takes alot of energy to mine it, crush it, heat it. etc... The only way to effectively mine it is to strip mine it"



What part of "thirty years ago" are you not getting?



"If I remember my high school term paper correctly.."



See? You said it right there.



Geez.

Good god, man, you're really dropping the ball. They might revoke your membership.

Oh well, you probably made up for it voting for *.

My 94 M900, with flatslides, gets right about your fleet average.

Most of these oil producers are suspected of having highly inflated their supply estimates to be allowed to produce more now rather than later.



I'd like to have some hope on this one, if someone could explain to me how rising oil production prices (shale, low hanging fruit already picked) plus incredibly elevated demand (India, China, and general population increases) equals a static standard of living, much less growth in that area. Right now, I am not seeing it.
