I really like travelling.

Howdy everybody,

I am a fuel efficiency/green energy enthusiast in Austin, Tx. I drive a 2001 Honda rebel 250cc motorcycle that I am going to streamline and convert into a super hybrid streamliner. Current fuel tanks are ranging in the 70-75mpg range because some times I have to drive fast to get where I am going. I know I can easily top 100mpg and am setting a benchmark test starting March 25th 2013. I say that because I get to help a friend move from Texas to Oregon on that day and ride my bike back down whichever way I may choose. I would like to do a national parks tour on my bike one day, and this is just the start.
Get efficient, get comfortable, get better.

Not so much in the streamlining part, but if Craig Vetter can do it, so can I, I'm not trying to make a new wheel, Im trying to fill it with nitrogen.

I am a renewable energies major and LOVE the concept of renewably powered vehicles...or renewably powered anything really, so I can't wait to jump on converting my 250cc motorcycle to run on earth juice.
