Heavy metal thunder .. and two-wheeled racks ..

Motorcycle   One potential solution to overcrowded highways and high fuel prices is a move to two-wheeled vehicles.  But a rise in motorcycle usage is prompting some local governments to take legal steps to curb noise pollution.  Here’s a story from today’s National Public Radio.   At the same time, more cities are requiring that new apartment buildings have “parking” for bicycles –- something that that law has long done in connection with motor vehicles.  I’d like to see law require that every new development -– residential or commercial –- include well-built, well-placed bicycle racks.  (Can you tell that I’m a cyclist?)
