Bust Out the Low Riders

Monday, June 15th is the 18th Annual International Motorcycle and Scooter Ride to Work Day.

Many motorcycle riders are still viewed as the odd balls on the highway (either with or without a helmet or eyegear). Yet motorcycles will someday be perceived as a widely recognized, good solution to social, urban and environmental problems. Europe and Asia today have already made advances toward electric motorcycles and scooters that are well designed, fuel efficient, safe and pretty damn sexy. I asked for a Vectrix V1 for Christmas, but Santa didn’t deliver!

And, the last time I remember being in an automotive “gridlock” was not cool. Even if you are carpooling or slugging in the D.C. pick-up line.
