In that lay down position, hitting pockets of heavy air will be like getting hit in the stomach I'd bet. Sport bikes in that leaned over position is bad enough. This will be killer. Wonder what kind of wars will be fought over who controls licensing those things and what taxes will be imposed and why. Fuel road tax will be like taxation without representation. Motorcycle license or pilots license? Will be interesting for sure.

I kept getting some kind of business news on the link.

About licensing, my daughter has a Toyota Camry Hybrid. She just recently got her license plate renewal notice. Because it's a hybrid, she has to pay an extra $100, here in the state of Arkansas, to renew her license plate.
Guess they figure she's not buying enough gasoline and therefore not paying enough gasoline taxes.

That's what I figured would happen once they realize they aren't getting
enough road tax to siphon off to their own wallets. Will that be the last or
will they find another place to stick it to us?

They are learning the same thing with those of us with large solar arrays.
Turns out they aren't making as much money so now they are calculating
the buy back differently for all new arrays. Ours and others like it will be
grandfathered in. For now anyway.

They won't let us alone no matter what we do. And it won't stop there I'm
sure in my case. We make money for 9 months of the year. No way will they
let that continue. In our case we are preparing to go off grid anyway. I'd
like to stay connected but I'm pretty sure they'll force our hand. We are so
close now that we could but have one more item to get.

Auto and bikes won't have that option. They will recoup money lost from
less gasoline used in one way or the other. In other words, the rich must
stay rich, in their mindset.

I don't have a real problem with that but let's make sure it's fair. They do
need to repair roads even though they aren't but they are supposed to.

That link worked.

Thoughts. I want one.

What will Honda do with it? Goldwing anyone? Or Honda Hawk?

Be a while before used ones hit the open market.

Meet George Jetson, his boy Elroy, daughter Judy and Jane his wife. ;)
