Save Gas - Ride A Motorcycle!

The average gas mileage of vehicles in this country stinks. Let's face it, if we keep consuming gas at the rate of 13MPG, we'll be paying 6 bucks a gallon before too long.

Of course, the cars that typically get 35+ MPG are the wimpiest looking vehicles on the planet. There's a reason they don't sell - they have all the sex appeal of Grandma's underwear.

Now, I'm a firm believer in personal choice, and I'm not going to outlaw the big SUV's anytime soon. However, I want to start a national campaign that can let us men keep our dignity AND save gas at the same time.

If I'm elected President of the United States, all motorcycle owners who ride over 5000 miles a year will get a tax break - a nice one. 5000 miles isn't a lot, but it's equal to the average 20 mile round-trip commute over the course of a year. If we can get 20% of the population to sign up for this plan, we'll se a significant drop in gasoline usage, see less traffic on the highways, and it'll make for tougher Americans.
