The first thing that you should understand is that I am not a scientist; I am just a guy who is interested in motorcycles. A few months back, The Discovery Network Show “Mythbusters” did an episode to find out which was more environmentally friendly, a motorcycle or a car. Well let’s cut to the chase, if you’re riding your motorcycle to save the planet then you better go trade in your cycle for a Ford. According to Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman, the show’s hosts, Cars have a lower pollution profile then Motorcycles. The Episode “Bike vs. Car” does a good job explaining their rationale but I’m still having trouble figuring out how logically this makes sense. My logic would dictate that motorcycles with greater fuel efficiency would create a smaller carbon foot print then a car. Well logic has never been my strong suit so I will defer to the experts. Luckily for me, I do not ride to save the environment but I do love that my motorcycle gets 46 miles per gallon. Riding a cycle is just so much more fun then driving a car. I feel nothing when I get into a cage but when I get on a motorcycle the world changes for the better. So watch the episode “Bike vs. Car” and see what Mythbusters has to say on the subject. Either way, I would choose a cycle over an auto any day of the week.
