Default Re: Electric = Motor.........Gasoline = Engine

Definitely Semantics. But there's a feel to it. You can ride one horse, by sitting on it with its back between your legs. But you must drive a team of horses, not by sitting on any of them, but by sitting on the seat of the carriage. Riding a bike is a bit like that, you sit on it out in the open; it's between your legs. You drive a car from the seat inside, and the motor is (generally) out front someplace. Still semantics though.

"There is nothing wrong with wanting a motorbike that is an extension of your personal taste and fashion sense; if you must ride somewhere, I say do it with style!"
