Sweet mother of all that's pure and holy, would you stop your eco-political shit? You're not going to change anyone's mind, especially on a forum. F%#k!!!

King Solomon once said that an opinion of a complete idiot is as valuable as that of a wisest of men - you just have to flip it.

This was introduced at EICMA last week, the Vins Duecinquanta, a 250cc two stroke street bike. Of course it isn't coming to the US, but they claim the 90 degree V-twin makes 75 hp and 33 lb-ft of torque at only 231lbs! Not sure where it is legal, but assume it is fairly clean and EFI?

WOW that makes my pants get tight, around the crotchal region.

That thing would be more fun than giving two toys to three kids...

if you're out there riding your ICE motorcycle for the fun of it..then you can't really say you care a whole bunch about the environment...I actually feel guilty about it for around 5 minutes and maybe after I get off...I'm old and won't be suffering the consequences like most of you will...I'm hoping for a good electric bike before I get too old..if not BBBRRRAAAPPPPPPP...

I'm very concerned about the environmental rape involved in the mining and production of the batteries used in electric and hybrid vehicles.

FWIW, my ICE mc's get around 39-51mpg's. Compare that with my classic car dd's that get around 12-14mpg's. I get sick of hearing that bikes are unnecessary toys and unnecessary expenditures contributing to pollution of the environment. And if anyone wants to buy me a Tesla or Prius I'm willing to drive them instead of my truck, classic car.

I kind of wrote that wrong..or maybe a bit confusing...I haven't heard you expressing an environmental agenda so my statement wouldn't mean "you" specifically...it was a generalized "you" used badly...what I meant to say is: if you care about ICE pollution in the environment..in this day and age you shouldn't own one..especially if it's just for fun...everything you said above I totally agree with...as I said before personally I feel bad while enjoying my ICE motorcycles..or something...I'm old..I'll be dead..you people will be living with the effects...bbrrraaaapppp
