Default Car vs. Bike MPG article

Kinda stupid, but thought I'd throw it up here, see what sticks....

Motorcycle vs Car MPG Test Drive - Ducati Hypermotard S vs. Honda Fit Sport Test Drive - Popular Mechanics

In my book if your choices are between a Hypermotard and a Honda Fit and you choose the Fit for any reason, you're an idiot. I don't care where you live, how many people are in your family, what your job is, how far away that job is, what your bills are, whatever, you're a stone cold idiot.

What a bunch of tools.

The Ducati is high strung? The air-cooled Duc motor is about the most mid-range friendly motor there is.

If they were riding a I4 600 maybe you could use the term high strung, but a Duc?

I also love how they mention the automatic transmission kept their feet from getting tired. Can I ride up there and punch one of them now?

And we're supposed to be the MOrons. If they would have compared the Fit and a Silverwing you'd probably have a "real" comparo to write home about.
