I too ride to work about 200 days a year (I'd do it more but we get some ice, snow an subfreezing weather on occasion in OR). But this day is about those who only get their bikes out on a sunny Sunday for a 50 mile jaunt. Just possibly if Ed Escalade or Ellie Expedition will notice that there neighbors on both sides ride, perhaps they'll pay a little more attention next time he/she sees or hears a biker on the road (not a loud pipe endorsement). Those of us who ride in traffic every day have to avoid a careless driver every day, maybe we'll live a little longer.
I don't see how anyone with a bike could NOT ride to work unless you're hauling tools or something. Between getting 40 mpg for $2.75 a gallon gas and cutting my commute time in half by being able to use the carpool lanes I only drive if it's snowing.
Fact is I'd still ride even if it was cheaper and faster to drive, I'd just rather be on the bike than in the car.
Amen brother. If I drove my truck I'd just turn on the radio and then before long I'd hear something that would just ***** me off. Who needs it? And to top it off in the AM all the music stations have these stupid morning shows hosted by these DJ duos who are never even 1/10th as funny as they think they are. Who really wants to hear "Money" for the ten billionth time anyhow?
On the bike I just grin like a pig in shyt.
Pick up the Superglide yet?
