3 surefire ways to waste gas

June 8, 2008 – 8:38 pm

I have been reading an awful lot of stories regarding two wheeled motorcycles or scooters as a better way to deal with the high gas prices. I total disagree after all its only money right? Here are 3 simples steps that you can follow to waste as much gas as possible when riding a motorcycle.

2004 Suzuki Hayabusa

1) Get yourself a big fast motorycycle that has some engine work done to it. Do not go for a slow economical scooter that gets great gas mileage that runs on 87 Octane. My choice is my bike in the photo above. I have a 2004 Suzuki Hayabusa that has a big bore kit in it, all the smog stuff has been removed, and I have taken the stock header off and put a pipe on it. This motorcycle sucks gas down like nobodies business. This bike is bored out to 1350CC which is a great gas hog and needs to run premium gas instead of lower octane which is cheaper.

The best way to waste gas is to find the most expensive gas possible


2) Next find a gas station that has high gas prices. The best I was able to do was $4.99 a gallon and there are higher prices out there but I wanted to do some riding so I settled. If I looked harder I probably could have found something in the $5.07 range or something like that.

A big group of motorcycle riders is a great way to get somebody to do something stupid.

3) Get a group of idiotic friends together that also enjoy wasting money on gas and don’t care about the law. Preferably a group of friends that also have Hayabusa’s but they key is a good sized group. The purpose here is everybody like to show off in a group. You encourage eachother to do things like high speed runs at 180MPH on the freeway, Wheelies, Burnouts and basically racing your bike everywhere you go. This is a great way to waste gas.

Now there are a few things to consider and I kind of contradicted myself a bit. When I mentioned not carrying about that law I didn’t mean go to Beverly Hills and act like a jackass and get a ticket for sure, you need to go down into the hood. My choice is in the Inglewood, Compton and Venice Area’s in Los Angeles, California. You can get away with alot more stuff here because the cops are usually busier busting crackheads and people doing heavier criminal activities than the ones you are about to engage in.

This first video clip shows Hayabusa’s going at it on the 105 freeway. The video is a little sketchy because I was filming while hanging on with one hand and I had to dodge a car. I would say by the time these guys where at full speed they were well over 180MPH wide open which is a great way to suck down gas. Also at the end of the clip my friend is doing a wheelie which is another good gas burner.

This second video clip shows what a good pack of friends looks like and when you have a good pack like this you are guaranteed to have some good gas wasting going on.

This third video clip has a couple good burnouts from me and my friend. When you are smoking your tires and hitting the rev limiter in 2nd gear you are pushing the bike to the limit thus burning maximum gas.Well that is all the information that I can give you on making your motorcycle as inefficient as possible when you are riding it during a gas crisis. Always ride safe and with a friend, don’t get a ticket and make sure everybody comes home in one piece. Safety First!

  7. where i’m from (philippines), there is a motorcycle named the yamaha v70 – it is a 4-stroke 70cc motorcycle. there’s not a lot of it around, but it is by far one of the most economical mopeds in existence. here’s a picture

  9. Nice. I made a free flow exhaust for my 150cc scooter – sucks a lot more gas than standard. Still waiting on my big bore kit (Poland) and supercharger (Thailand). ;)

  11. The fact that you’re obviously well-versed in the above douchebaggery causes you to come off as no less of a douche than those you’re attempting to parody.

  13. I understand this article is just poking fun, but there really are a lot of jaggoff riders out there that give the rest of us a bad rap. In all seriousness, if you are looking to save some gas, check out http://www.h2ofuelboost.com. Works on cars, bikes, even scooters…

  14. Economical scooter? I’ve got a 1300cc motorcycle that gets 49mpg at 80mph on 87 octane gas. It would go faster, but I don’t care to go any faster. (And no, it’s not a sport bike) Why would I buy a 50cc scooter that may get 100mpg, but only go 20mph. Scooters are for people who can’t pass their motorcycle endorsement tests.

    Motorcycles are so light that they really don’t suck down much more gas when you ride them harder, this is usually more of a problem with cars and trucks. Hell, I rode up a 14,110 mountian and back down over the weekend. I spent most of the trip on the mountain in first or second gear, and still got 43mpg. I didn’t see any scooters either.

    You should just retitle the article, “I Hate Motorcycles Because Some People Have Fun on Them”

  15. 180mph? Maybe 110…

    I don’t think so- If you really wanna do that I can show you the spots to really get your bike up to that speed… Of course I could take you to the track or the canyons but there are alot of turns and you would probably freak out :)

    You have no idea how fast 180 is on the freeway- I only have a itty-bitty 750 so it shouldn’t be no prob for you too hang with me.. right? I’ll bet pinks that at 130 in traffic you’ll disappear behind me.

    Post up on Socal-sportbikes.com… I’ll be waiting to see if you really wanna learn to ride or just posin’ as usual.

    will

  16. Buying expensive gas is not a waste of gas. It is a waste of money. The efficiency of an internal combustion engine is independent of price paid for fuel… Fail.

  17. I can’t wait to see the site with pictures of your mangled corpse on it.

  18. Hey Billy-bob, I think owning a Harley is a true money-waster but not a gas-waster…

  19. This gas crisis is so out of hand, that I’ve resorted to drastic measures. Recently I converted my 04 Cadillac to utilize water as fuel from an easy to install kit, I obtained online from a company called Water4fuel,info
