      • -more dangerous than a 4 wheel vehicle
        -exposed to rain and cold
        -same rules apply, except for air cooled bikes

        Motorcycles have their pros and cons.

        But that’s not what this ad is saying.

        • to help clarify my point, sharing lanes in CA is legal (if not at worst grey area) therefore easier to navigate traffic. “Splitting lanes” as they say gets ya ahead of the other vehicles pretty quickly, or keeps you in motion when everyone else is stopped (keeping an eye on cars making lane changes). My one way commute to the office is about 50/50 city streets vs freeway. In the truck, its a 30-40 minute trip. On a bike (even the 250 that I rarely break 80mph on) it becomes 15-20 minute trip. I’m also spending about 20 bucks for fuel a week between the buell and ninja. It’s nearly 60 a week with the truck for same distances traveled.

    2. I like riding a bike, but my sense of self preservation keeps me from using as transportation.

      I drive a big ass truck right now, and idiots still cut me off and I’ve had a few fender benders. On a bike the same wreck would put me in traction if I’m lucky.

    4. I rode my bike to work a lot.

      But, I didn’t have to. because it was literally 15 minutes 2 miles down the road whether I rode the bike or drove.

      I did a wheelie crossing the street, and the chain came off, and the miami ink sunglasses I had on fell off and broke.

    7. I would (and have) honestly look at using a bicycle to commute to work; it’s only about ten miles. I grew up in the New England area, and most of the roads had either sidewalks or a considerable amount of asphalt on the right side of the painted stripe. I used to bike damn near everywhere.

      Where I am now, the roads a so fucking shitty cheap, that there is often not enough road for the painted strip. That, and the drivers here just don’t fucking care. They will run down a cyclist that is in “their” road. Having been in the other position, I will wait for the cyclist to wave me on to pass.

      Yeah, they are slowly adding bike lanes, but not where I need them. Nothing like driving to where it is safe to bicycle.
