They are when your "car" is a 3/4 ton 4x4 diesel.

I will have to look it up, I want to say TR 88.

Edit, yeah, just looked it up, it is TR 88 between TR 89 and 87, just north of I-71. The play area west of the road seems pretty well used and I believe is on Amish property, they have always waved at me when I rode back there.

Another neat road right around there is Lanning Rd, though not abandoned.

True, but I always laugh at people that buy a bike to save gas.

Dollar for dollar if you decided that you needed 200,000 miles of transportation over 10 years you could do it so much cheaper in a Toyota Yaris than you could on any motorcycle.

The difference is the fun factor....how much value do you put on the enjoyment of riding?

Most motorcycles are pretty exciting, most economy cars are beyond bland.

Pretty sure that Lanning road is only about 10 minutes from my house.

I have plans for a gnarly single track on my neighbors 67 acre lease. I have his OK, but I'll have to keep it lowkey. It would take me forever to blaze it by myself, but with a couple of other quiet riders that could keep a secret we could have a honey hole.

fj cruiser

My wife bought a new FJ in 2007 - nice vehicle. She is driving a Tundra now and I think I liked the FJ better than she did. Her biggest complaint was the blind spots although she never had a problem and I didn't think it was so bad. Fuel mileage was pretty good but was recommended to use premium, I think about 18-19 MPG.
I now have a Tacoma but really don't have alot of use for a truck anymore and often think I would have been happier keeping the FJ for myself. Good luck with your decision.

What else are they going to do? They can't use a phone to tell anyone about it.

Amish love 'em some guns. My brother used to run a gun shop in Wooster, he sold a bunch of guns to the Amish. And, it's not just single-shot turkey guns either, they love semi-autos and cheap Russian surplus stuff like SKS's and AK's.

Most people buy motorcycles to save money, then they sit 3/4 of t he year because it's too cold, too wet, might rain, I hate helmet hair...

Then they go out and buy something that gets 30mpg 'cause it's cool or fast and the insurance is more than their annual gas budget.
