The original premise was ridiculous. Glad the AMA pointed the fact to our otherwise very astute and caring politicos. God help us everyone.

I will rejoin the AMA in 2013 just because of this!

Joined in 1977. Since loud pipes are a no-no, we need to be heard somehow.
Am concerned that many of the guys I raced with in the '70's and '80's are now in the AMA Hall of Fame. When did they get so old?

That is good news

Have worked on some Ethanol plants, seems like it takes more energy to make it than you get from it IMO. Some of the technology for using waste byproducts as a feedstock for ethanol seems to make more sense.

Depending on what you are trying to achieve, cheap alternative fuel sources for the masses or a fuel source that is easily cost regulated and distributed using existing infrastructures and not upset "big oil" (global economy) too much.

Don't get me wrong, I love petroleum products as much as the next person, I need them to empower my addiction to all things fast and shiny...

Happy holidays to all
