The NBC Nightly News recently reported on the growing appeal of motorcycle riding to beat rising gas prices. According to the NBC News story, New York State has seen applications for new motorcycle licences rise 20 percent over this time last year.
Motorcycle repair shops are full of old bikes that have been dragged out of the dusty corner of garages or old barns. Their owners are having the old bikes repaired to hit the road and save on gas.
While veteran riders welcome the company on road, some are wary that inexperienced bikers are putting themselves and others at risk to reduce their fuel costs.
