Motorcycles getting second looks as gas prices rise

While some people are trading in their SUVs or even large cars for smaller, more fuel-efficient vehicles, others are abandoning four wheels for two. Heritage Harley Davidson owner Toby O’Brien has noted an increase in the number of people coming into his store and purchasing motorcycles after selling off their SUVs. “With a bike you're getting up to 40 miles a gallon so you're saving significantly so a lot of people are taking advantage of that,” says O’Brien.
But he readily admits that new sales means novice riders. Organizations such as the Pennsylvania Motorcycle Safety Program and others offer free training courses for newbies.

Would you be willing to switch from four to two-wheels to save gas?
