Your call mate.....

Besides the fact your comment is irrelevant to the initial query, I suspect if you are referring to the volume of traffic usually associated with commutes, your comment has some merit. For me personally, I find commuting helps me to be a better rider overall, because I encounter many more different and unexpected situations while commuting, than I might otherwise. So I feel I am better prepared for and react quicker to the unexpected I may encounter on trips. Also I find it helps to keep me focused, maintain good situational awareness and muscle memory.
