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

No one yet has brought up the fact that we ride, engine bikes.

No one ever says, "I'm going to enginize my bicycle", yet many of us prefer to call those things we bolt to our bikes, engines instead of motors. Hmmmmm

Reminds me of "Jumbo Shrimp" and "Military Intelligence"
Misnomers and oxymorons. Ya gotta love the English language.
