I still don't think MOST here on the forum use RC LiCo, most of the very active members do, but not most on the forum.
Even granting you the possibility that the battery cost is $.10 a mile, I'm still skeptical of how a motorcycle is cheaper than an e-bike.
The initial cost of a good scooter and a decent e-bike are roughly the same, then after that, it's all about operating expenses. With no gas, insurance, registration, and not having to have a DOT approved helmet, there doesn't seem to be any possibility a scooter can be cheaper than an e-bike.

Still stupid as ever. That poll was done in 2008.
