obviuosly - we would no longer have the urban advantage if we ALL rode motos - but if a lot more people rode i think it might be a huge benefit. better mileage - less pollution - shorter commute times...and instead of getting to work PISSED because i sat in my car for almost an hour to travel 9 miles - i get to work TOTALLY PUMPED because i not only had the upper hand - but i had fun too...and it shows im my attitude - not just for work - but about a lot of things, simply because of my chosen mode of transportation...no more high blood pressure drives anywhere. just my goofy smile - and one word ringing thru my head...SUCKAZ!!! the world seems to be getting nuttier and nuttier these days - this just might be one small suggestion that might actually do some good. ive already converted 3 friends back in to the fold - and they couldnt be happier about it...what can i say - maybe its a silly idea - maybe not. drj i orginally posted this in the general forum - till i realized almost no one goes there.
