*Because millions of us bought and paid or build our Vintage Bikes and Vehicles with hard earned cash and often times a lot of long hours and more with the intent of not wanting to buy a newer vehicle or bike ever again. Then again some of us are just old school and make out things last as long as possible so we have the funding for other projects. Some even save up that way to send their kids to college, or a trip once a year out of state or any number of things. We watch our funding wisely so we do not have to be pressured in to buying a new bike or vehicle just to keep up with the new tends.As said though some of us were just raised old school. It is a dying form of a much easier way of life.
Then work to require them to post it. Fact is, most vehicles handle even E15 just fine, including our modern bikes. Buy from sources that you know what you are getting. But don't blame ethanol for political decisions. States that don't require marking do so because of pressure from fuel venders fearing the prejudice against it.
Your old bike does not justify banning a fuel that my new one handles just fine. Why should those relatively few vehicles dictate what everyone else uses? Because you are "old school"? That's a ludicrous argument.
The sourcing of ethanol is a different issue. End corn subsidies, and switch to non-food crops. The tech is there, no one does it because of the subsidies for corn.
Making insults does not help your argument. Quite the opposite, actually.
