Re: Why Do We Ride?
Whatever I save on gas, I spend on tires.
I ride bcz I love riding; so much so that I no longer own a car.
And, driving a car cross country would be way too boaring for me. Since it's fun on a bike, I wind up spending more $$ on motels, food, and gas than if I just owned a car. Come to think of it, I wouldn't be buying a new crash helmet, new summerr boots, new rain boots, new summer jacket, new summer gloves if I just had a car.
