so.... Why?
Exactly that and the price of gas makes it much cheaper than driving my 4-runner!

oh......it's much more fun!

Talking Re: Reasons for riding Motorized Bicycle

I took a Santa Monica bus to a LA Metro Bus to go home today. Distance traveled was 8.4 miles. Elapsed time was 2.5 hours total, having to wait for the buses, plus the total # of stops. I think I could have actually walked home faster, if I wasn't so over walking anywhere. LOL

4. I can quit ruining my valuable baseball cards in tire spokes.
5. 4 was a joke. None of the cards are valuable.
Brilliant!

I just took mine to the mountains of New Mexico. I talked to more people about my bike than the combined times that I rode a motorcycle to the same locations. There's just something that makes people smile when they see one of these things.......I know that I do!

This is a great thought!! However, I don't think that I've ever questioned a chicken --- at least one that that had feathers.......

LOL That was a good one. In LA it's much easier for me to dodge stray pedestrians if I'm on a bike and not question their motives.

thats part of the reason i left L.A., a ~20 mile trip from Venice and La Brea Ave to Long Beach took 2.5 hours ON THE FREEWAY!...lol Granted we couldnt move over 25 miles per hour at any given time during the trip. A motorized bike would probably take about 30 minutes, 45 tops.
