This spring and continuing into summer, we have seen tremendous reader interest in motorcycles and motor scooters as both a recreational outlet and fuel-saving alternative to an automobile. Our initial thread on the topic inspired great discussion, with participants sharing personal insights and sound advice, but clearly the interest is rapidly outgrowing the thread.

So, we have begun a formal discussion area within the Cars forums to enable, and indeed encourage, readers to share their views on buying, owning, and safely operating motorcycles and motor scooters.

In addition, we will continue to provide motorcycle coverage in the Cars blog. Enthusiasts are invited to bookmark the specific "Motorcycles & scooters" category link.

We will be monitoring the forum discussions to inform our future motorcycle advice and general coverage.

So, tighten your chin strap, put up the kick stand, and cruise over to the new discussion area. See you there!
