    Lets get on that e85 kick but use some sort grass that grows in saltwater. I think I can make the hippies believe I doing a good cause to move around.

    If be all for living in the same town as i work. The problem with America is we don't have a good transit system except for like new York. but i heard new York smells like ass. I'd ride a train into work if a train even stopped close to work.

    sad thing is like suckers most of us are going to still have to buy it no matter the price and gas companies know that.

    just spent my first ever $90 dollars for a full tank of gas...holy jesus! That is the price my friend spends on his titan...I was wondering why EVERY gas station I went to around my area was more crowded than normal. The gas station at costco was ridiculous..I usually get gas there but I had to leave it was so crowded

    Another reason NOT to live in Cali. My friend can't even afford to drive his truck anymore, he just bought a scooter.

    And he'll never hear the end of it from me for owning a scooter.

    do you guys think gas prices will drive people crazy enough to hold up a gas station? i was just thinking that there probably is someone crazy enough to do it and when it does maybe then there will be some damn regulations on price gouging and the whole paying out your ass if you use a credit card. shits ridiculous.:mad:

    That bike is more like 40-45mpg when taking it easy. Sport bikes are a whole bunch of maintenance. This is 55 -60 and you still won't look dumb riding one.

    Well I've been riding it for 2 years now and only time I get less than 55 is if I go over 90mph. If I keep it around 85 and below I'll get 50-55 easy even if I ride it really hard the entire tank. Baby it and keep it under 75 and I'll get 60+

    Regardless, anything is better than the 17 I get in the truck.
