I did some more calculations on energy usage for the electric motorcycle.

After converting electric energy to gasoline energy, and figuring per mile; the cycle uses the equivelant of less than a tablespoon of gasoline per mile.

To compare, my wife's good car, on a good day, not driving too fast, would use just over half a cup.

Maybe I should keep a tablespoon with the cycle, just as a visual aid.
