THATS what gripes me...I ride motorcycles too, and the "safety issue" read "crash tests"
mandated by D.O.T. make little sense. I mean, if we Ecomodders want to hit the really
big mpg numbers we will need small, light cars/trucks to do it!
Can't see why the Gov't has to be involved--seems like a voluntary thing; if you want
great gas mileage get small/light...or big/safe if that is your concern!
I know the DOT tries to steer a middle course, but (especially now) with gas prices soaring, can't they give us a choice? Besides, it WOULD save gas!
