First, regular readers of this blog know that I am concerned about environmental issues, and have written posts that talk about the strange-but-true connection between passing gas -- whether human or otherwise -- and global warming.
Hybrid vehicles are powered by both gasoline and some other fuel (such as hydrogen, natural gas, electricity, etc.). They produce fewer hydrocarbon emissions and, as such, are better for the environment.
While there are a number of hybrid automobiles on the market, until today, nobody has created a hybrid motorcycle.
Second, and more to the point, the man who invented, engineered, and built the prototype of the world's first hybrid motorcycle is a good friend of mine, and, as chance would have it, he suffers from flatulence.
