Biodiesel is a domestically produced renewable resource.  It also is much better for the environment than conventional fossil fuels.  Ideally you should walk, or ride a bicycle, but we love motorcycles.  This is an air cooled 856cc diesel (compression ignition) motorcycle.  All the cool machine work is by Peter Hunstein.
