    I've convinced myself that I probably have the best motorcycle commute in the history of the world. I live about a half hour from work and my drive consists of some of the best twisties in the Oregon coast range, good passing lanes, and few stop lights.
    My daily ride has always been good, but I got a Triumph Sprint 955 this spring and it has taken it to a whole new level!
    I made a little video, check it out and I think you'll agree that if you have to work, this is a pretty good way to start the day:

    OK - unlawfulsm has (or had) a pretty sweet commute. In light of the theme of this site, I admit defeat.

    I can take about 5 miles of ATV trail during my 25-mile commute.

    That's awesome. I typically don't like POV videos of other people doing fun things, but that was a great video. Change the music to something good, though... ;)
