Just coming back from the gym yesterday, it finally occurred to me, as I’m sure it’s occurred to many other riders, that the only reason we don’t outnumber cars 10-1 on the road is that most people have just never experienced the joy of a good ride on a nice day.
Motorcycles are so obviously the rational response to most traffic issues anywhere in the country, that you just know there must be a conspiracy going on. : ) Fuel economy alone would surely make it a national security gold star winner. Screw fighting over foreign oil fields.
Sure we’ll still need to have cars and trucks, but most people in large parts of the country could comfortably commute many if not most days by motorcycle, and they’d probably be a lot happier doing it too, so less road rage. It’s a win-win-win!
