    ... buy a motorcycle.

    My Harley, even though it's a big twin, gets 45 mpg city, 50 mpg highway. It just cost me $16 to fill it at $4.11 a gallon. A record. But even these fancy hybrids don't get as good a mileage as my motorcycle. There would be less congestion too if more people road bikes.

    crashing or getting in an accident in a motorcycle vs. in a car? ...chances are too risky in a motorcycle, saving money isn't that important.

    Motorcycles are too noisy. I prefer my bicycle.

    If you continue to burn gas you will burn in hell. God told me so.

    You can't live your life in fear. But since you have enough money to guy gas at any price, drive whatever you want.

    You sure you want a Softail Gunny? Softails have the 'B' engine. It's balanced and solid mounted. You can hardly feel it's running, along with them having large weights spinning around front and rear driven by a chain with hydraulic tensioners that eat up oil pressure, and the weights eat up horse power. They're also limited to 5,850 rpm as opposed to 'A' engine bikes, Dyna's and Touring, that can spin up to 6,200 rpm, or more. Take it from an old Harley Tech, look at either a Dyna or a Touring Gunny. You don't want a Softail.
