A year ago when I got my first "real" bike, I went all in.
Committed to giving up the truck for six months. Figured that would ramp up my skills the fastest and make the bike pay for itself with gas and time savings. And I actually pulled it off-used bike for commuting, errands, gym, meeting clients, meeting friends out, everything. All in.
When I got back in the cage it was weird. Awful actually. No lane splitting, stuck in traffic, no more instant parking, can't see anything, etc. I didn't panic, but just realized how much cages suck when you live in a congested, urban, gridlocked area.
Why don't more people use motorcycles as car replacements? Especially in cities, especially in Socal.
Tomorrow, June 17th, is RIDE TO WORK DAY. Do it!
