Shocking News: Motorcycle, Moped, And Bicycle Sales Are Up!

"We've seen a lot more interest in scooters and motorcycles because of fuel economy," said Ty van Hooydonk, director of product communications for the Motorcycle Industry Council. "When you're looking at a motorcycle or a scooter getting two to three times the fuel economy of a car, people are going to think about it."

Is anyone surprised by this?

Some people are using pedal power (the ultimate in fuel economy). The exercise is very good, but given the rude treatment by your average motorist I would be afraid to ride a bike on the streets. In my desire to have some rapid transit could we paint a few bike lanes around here too?
