At any sort of speed a bicycle simply doesn't go (which is why they aren't allowed on major four-lanes). A motorcycle lacks safety, cargo and passengers. Weather puts an end to both of them. If cars and trucks weren't a "scalable packet size" then their use wouldn't dominate person and goods transportation.

Canadian here, Tonnes of people go to the native reserves to get cigarettes here because they are prohibitively expensive. Now the government gets no tax and the people get unregulated and less safe cigarettes. But hey, the tobacco companies report less sales so the system must be working.
