Aint no MPG like infinity MPG :-P

I use my 28 speed bike for local trips whenever weather and carrying capacity permit, and I've made round trips faster than by car by not having to search and fight for a parking spot.
And I'm fit and slim and feel great.

wish I could - but 20 miles on the highway might be bad for my health in so many ways.

My Kawasaki gets about 40 MPG, best car gets around 33 MPG on same route, a good savings, but not phenomenal.
