The 'alcohol' part absorbs water out of the air a lot faster than pure gasoline. Also, the alcohol part has less energy density than gasoline. ie: you will get lower MPG on it, or any blend of it beucase there is less combustion energy per gallon of fuel.
What this means is you'd have to re-jet your bike (cars have EFI), and always, ONLY, use fresh fresh fuel.
The new GM Flex-Fuel cars will end up costing more in the long run because they will get less MPG on the E85 fuel. But you're saving the whales and trees!!!
