I love to ride motorcycle (Victory and others) in W. Virginia.

If you've been thru there recently (particularly the western part) you would understand the extent to which fracking has taken over the area.

Gas lines are used to move the gas produced from fracking. Big ones make big explosions when someone makes a booboo.

From the article:
"Mike Banas, communications manager for NiSource, said the company was still gathering facts."

Saddlebag, I think it's time for you give them a call.

Please add your bike's year and model to your signature. Here's why.

Blest with victory and peace, may the heav'n rescued land
Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation.
Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,
And this be our motto: "In God is our trust."
And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

another side of the story

Not to make light of the original story, but since no one was injured and everyone is accounted for...

good idea, you be the first to buy the new electric powered bike, oh wait a minute, chances are the electric power used to recharge the battery so you can ride another 20 miles uses coal to produce the electricity

We don't have NG powered bikes yet either. With all the brilliant Americans who think it's cool to stand around filling stations smoking, I'm not sure I'd want one either...
