    "Huh? A motorbike is going to save us from relying on imported oil?"

    The funny part is that Motorbikes are already the solution. If everyone of
    those idiots who drive their car to work by themselves chose to ride a
    scooter there would be no oil problem. Petrol use would reduce by at least
    50% overnight.

    Man, you should head over to aus.cars with that kind of trolling.
    Seriously, you could shame Bobby with it.

    Oil consumption is about a lot more than just the fuel you pump into
    your vehicle. If you think you're part of the "solution" by riding a
    motorcycle then you are off the mark by a long, long way.

    per litre and per kg motorcycles are way way less efficient than cars.

    Depends on what the problem is doesn't it?
    My problem is that I used to pay too much for petrol. Since owning my bike I
    haven't had that problem.
    I've gone form about $30/week to $7/week. So in my case, it is the solution.

    Well, you were clear on that. You were talking about "the oil problem".

    You weren't talking about _your_ problem.

    If there wasn't a passenger car in the world and instead everyone rode
    motorcycles, the environmental and sustainability picture would be
    largely the same. A little better, sure, but still pitiful.

    If we're looking for solutions - in Australia anyway - how about we look
    at getting rid of urban sprawl and the freeways it requires and instead
    build a much higher density community with efficient public transport
    and encourage walking/cycling.

    But that's an argument for another channel ;-)

    Just out of interest what do you perceive the oil problem to be?

    That prices are increasing sharply because supply is not increasing at a
    rate comparable to demand increasing.

    Is that not what you had in mind?

    That's happening now in Canberra, massively hideous blocks of flats going up
    all along Northbourne Ave (and other places), contemporaneous with "on-road
    cycling".
    Oh, sorry :)
