Fuel Cell Motorcycles: Eco-Friendly, Rider Hostile?

While I love the concept of a hyper-efficient, totally green motorcycle, I have to admit that Intelligent Energy's ENV Bike does sketch me out. Why exactly? Well, since the power comes from a fuel cell, it's whisper quiet, which just seems dangerous on a bike. And seriously, most drivers have a hard enough time looking out for two-wheelers as it is, so riding a silent one seems like asking for trouble. If my paranoia hasn't rubbed off on you, head over to Wired and check out the gallery of eco-friendly bikes.
