SShhhhh! You'll give away our secret! Motorbikes have been pulling vastly superior gas mileage and performance for decades, but the "green" folks don't really care about results, they want to show off with expensive new toys instead of, say, an 82 Yamaha that gets 40MPG...green "smug" emitters still want all the comforts they insult the SUV drivers for having, but can't be arsed to give up everything for "mother earth", they just want to throw money at it.
What's really funny is around here in CA, most hybrid/battery/unicorn-f@rt powered car owners also own at least one SUV that gets driven by their "other half" every day and on weekends....
-three years now commuting daily, year 'round, on 2 wheels. Plus errands and small grocery runs on weekends.
