I'm in the short commute (12 minutes) camp, plus I have to haul my computer back and forth. Living in a townhouse with no carport/garage means that I have to load my Givi trunk with computer, lunch goes in the tank bag, take the cover off my bike, unlock it, stash cover/lock+cable in the house (or my car if it's close by), move my wife's car, pull the bike out, put wife's car back (I would've been at work already if I drove the car) and head out. Regardless of the additional time, I love riding to work, so I do it unless I'm running between buildings to multiple meetings... generally 2 or 3 days a week in the summer.
