The problem with letting the government issue a Drivers License (which is unconstitutional, by the way....) is that they use it as an instrument of oppression, especially for those of limited...

That is not exactly correct. Here in Georgia, your license is automatically suspended for a DUI, even the first one, for at least 3 months, and you have to go to court to get a hardship waiver,...

Being Gay is not mentioned specifically, either, yet the courts have ruled that you have a 'right' to be that way. The Constitution does not spell out each and every right there is. However, "Freedom...

Bike taxes and licensing schemes come up on a regular basis, and are usually soundly defeated. Gas taxes fund less than 10% of US Highway funds. It's about the same for most states.

In my state (Georgia), a bicycle is legally a vehicle, and subject to all the same rights and responsibilities are an automobile driver. You have to follow the traffic laws, same as a car. So, around...

Why does everything have to be a stereotype? I ride bents because I like them...not because I have to. You don't think anyone would ride a trike just because they are fun....and incredibly cool?

I do it all the time, albeit on a 2-wheeled EZ-1. I don't understand the reference. You simply stay to the right as much as you can, and the cars and trucks will get around you as best they can. The...

I couldn't agree more. I've put around 200 miles on my EZ-1 so far, and there is no comparison to a conventional bike. The 'bent is a decisive winner. I am selling-off all my other bikes.

Over the same course, same speed, I would say the conventianal bike will get you more of a workout. It takes more energy/calories to move a conventional bike than it does a recumbent, even though it...

It took me about 20 minutes to get comfortable with my EZ-1. I actually thought it was easier than a conventional bike, since I could put my feet down on the ground while my butt remained in the seat...

I guess I don't understand what a "semi-recumbent" is. I've never seen one. I ride a Sun EZ-1, and it's the best $200.00 I ever spent. I hardly ever drive anymore, unless I absolutely have to. I...

I ride an EZ 1. Best purchase I ever made. I got it used on EBay and never had a single regret. I've probably put 2000 miles on it since I bought it, and all I have done is wear out the seat cover....

Black bikes do not show dirt as bad, and look classy, IMHO. It's also easier to select the colors of accessories because anything goes with black.
