Which brings me to my point. Here is the spectrum. Sustainable - Unsustainable. Ducati 600SS - NIssan Patrol.
The argument for motorcycles is completely sustainable.
- They use little fuel
- They use little space (how many parking buildings and associated resource consuming facilities are needed for cars and SUVs)
- They are less wasteful - most car journeys are taken alone.
- If there were more of them and concessions were made for using them (tax, ACC payments) the roads would be safer - most bike accidents are caused by car drivers - because there would be fewer cars.
But mostly they are more fun. The most fun I had was my Ducati.
If anyone knows of a nice Norton Commando...
