Default Get the F*** OUT!



W/ the riding position in the video, the swoopy aerodynamics, etc, the best they could wrangle is 130?



How weak is that? If you're gonna break a record, Shatter the MotorFinger!!!

Yeah,this link confirms what i THOUGHT I knew.B20 is the strongest mix you can comfortably use in a non modified vehicle as of now. I would be real leary using anything stronger in a new vehicle unless the manufacturer expressly stated in writig that running stronger mixes was ok and warranty applied. Until a significant amount of new diesel vehicles are designed and warranteed for use with B100(or close) Biodiesel is of limited use in energy conservation efforts(IMHO)....I hope it happens soon,as Biodiesel to me is more promising than electric and hydrogen powerd cars. I think the day of biodiesel (or petro diesel for that matter) motorcycles is still aways off.

I hear you. Supposedly the Energy balance numbers take your points about fertilizer and machines use to harvest it into account..



I grew up in oil shale country so I saw the big boom and bust in towns like Parachute, Grand Junction, Rifle, Colorado. So I am skeptical about the energy balance i.e. you have to strip mine it like goal. But coal you can burn right away. Shale has to be processed. We still have lots of coal reserves in Colorado, Wyoming, etc. not the high grade that they have back in Penn.



Not sure there is whole lot of oil in left in Alaska. If there was I would be all for going after it.. My uncle was a engineer on the pipeline. He says that they already got the easy stuff.

I think we have to look at Nukes at some point so that kind of makes me unpopular with the locals here. Yep I think global warming may be going on but I am skeptical about its ill effects...

Well, it's not like this is the first floatie you've ever consumed, I expect.



I'm a man. I can admit I was Wrrr...rr.....







I meant to say, I was Wrrr.....rrrr..rrr......oonnn....







That is, I may have been slightly less than 100% Correct.







Now, look at the link I put up (that YOU provided some months ago, BTW!). Look me in the Monitor and tell me (WITH a straight keyboard) that, based on YOUR OWN LINK, what I was arguing was incorrect.



Outdated, perhaps. Incorrect, No.



But, as I'm a Bush-lovin' KPKB-member, I must have LIED about it, eh?



And admit it - YOU didn't know either, or you would have refuted my claim much more quickly. I merely remembered the gist of the document, and repeated it (accurately).

Yeah, but today's "easy stuff" was yesterday's "unreachable."



"I think we have to look at Nukes at some point so that kind of makes me unpopular with the locals here. Yep I think global warming may be going on but I am skeptical about its ill effects..."



Whoa - two eminently sensible points. I'm giving you an "Intelligent" for that.
