Anyone on here not have a car and their motorcycle is their only way to ride and get around and commute and do everything in life? Does your bike serve as your commuter, your limousine, and your long trip companion?

Carry any interesting things on your bike when you do?

I dont have a car anymore. i had three cars and once i got the 636 i sold the cars as i didnt touch them for about 4 months. i use the bike every day and love every minute of it. My girl has a car and if it raining really badly then she hounds me and drives me around because she doe not like me to ride in the rain. Dont blame her i guess

What are you guys paying to maintaine the bikes over in OZ though?
Here in SA its a bit expansive for rubber and stuff. The biggest ass busting thing though is brake pads. Man the things set you back about $180 US and thats just for the front

Count me in! I took a 200 miler the other day from 7:00p.m-2:30 am and I froze,got rained on and took a hot bath when I got home(Joints killed). I would do it 10/10 times. If I'm not on here I'm riding or thinking about it anyways.

Right now I am sharing cars because the bike is down for repairs after the lil accident. But i took the insurance and registration off all my cars until the winter. Who needs 4 wheels when you got 2? unless you have 2 bikes :)
