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.

O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

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...
