Dagwood I welcome you to THE Forum. I would like to be the first to thank you for your post. I wonder if one gallon of gas was put into a Caddy Escalade, and One gallon in one of our bikes witch one would put out more emissions. The gas eating SUV that gets 13 MPG or Our bikes that get 150 mpg. How much more emissions would be released by the SUV to go 150 miles. The awnser is clear. I spoke with a man that drives one. His fuel cost per month is almost 400.00 Mine is about 15.00 per month. I guess the tree huggers have not thought about that.
