And by the way, I use every possible excuse to ride my wife's SYM! Sometime I have to get creative. How can I justify riding her HD200 (with a top box/trunk) to the grocery store when a car was available? But I do it ball the time. I may have to one pound of coffee instead of five- but it's worth it. And it gets 75+ mpg.My Toyota Tacoma pickup gets maybe about 22 mpg. The 1992 Ford Explorer that was given to me when my Mother passed away gets like 12!!

Oh well. Any excuse will do.

I have seen other threads where people discussed whether or not the money saved on gas outweighs the cost of the scooter. In my case, the money spent on scooters/motorcycles far outweighs the cost of therapy and anti-depressant drugs I would need if I didn't ride
I ride, Therefore I Am.
