A motorcycle is, simply put, a motorized bicycle. It is however, much faster and does not require much physical effort to keep going. Mechanically, a motorcycle works as a bicycle except it has a speed of 90 feet with poor maneuverability. and an overland speed of 90 mph. When on a motorcycle you count as being mounted, however unlike a normal mount a motorcycle need to be of the same size as the creature it made for. Since it motorized the motorcycle has limited ability to move on it own, acting like a mindless mount. Unless brought to a stop it will always move at least 20 feet in the last direction you directed it. As long as you are conscious and not immobilized on the bike you can control it speed and direction.
Sadly, a motorcycle requires F.U.E.L.. A single ounce is consumed for each 10 minutes it is used. A motorcycle's gas tank can hold up to 50 ounces at any time. Refueling a motorcycle takes 1 minute. A magic motorcycle consumes F.U.E.L. ten times slower, but costs an additional 500 gp (or the cost of the magical enhancement, whichever is higher). Some really high-tech bikes use a fusion cell instead of F.U.E.L., lasting for hundred of years without need to refuel. However, these models cost three time as much as a normal bike (fusion cell not included).
A motorcycle has an AC of 13, 20 hit points and a hardness of 10. It count a mount, having two move action each round but it is also mindless and may only take it actions to move. A medium motorcycle weight 330 lbs. and can carry material and creature as if it was a quadrupedal creature of one size larger than it actual size with a Strength of 20.
Price 1,000 gp.
