Default Re: whats so great about a motorized bicycle?

I've been asked before "What's the big attraction" for me? I said "I built this, and it works! I didn't just go out and buy a motorcycle, I built this!"
He still wasn't getting it, "But it's just a 49 cc slowpoke."

So I dredged up an old rationalization: "Okay. I'll race you. You drive your car. I'll ride my motorbike. You pick a destination exactly 30 miles away, and we'll race to it. But on one condition - to be fair, we each start the race with only one quart of fuel in our vehicle's tank. The loser has to clean and polish the bike."

I saw by his face that a light was coming on.

"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!"
