Default Re: Why not just buy a motorcycle?

I wish I had seen this thread sooner. I am always making comments about why the bike is more fun. Like most of the guys here I have ridden motorcycles in my youth.

There are a few things about the motorized bike that I like a better than any motorcycle or car I ever owned.

When I ride my motorized bike I am going slow enough to actually see what is happening in my environment. I can even speak to people as I go by. I get to be part of it not just passing through it, you just don't get that at thirty five miles an hour. It's a whole different feeling/

In my case I got a big chunk of my life back because of the bike but thats a different thing. Mostly it's about pride in having done it myself and the interaction with my environment.
My posts have entertainment value only. A bike ain't yours till it has your blood on it. Then it owns you.
