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

I always thought that a 2 wheeled vehicle such as what we call a motorcycle was called that because the engine on the 2 wheeled vehicle allows it to motor along under the power of the engine thus making it a motoring cycle.....?

NOT saying this is the Gospel here, just another twist on the whole Engine not being a Motor thing.

I dont always ride WOT, but when I do..I do my best to keep the rubber side down..Ride safely my friends!
