Is your motorcycle transportation or for fun?

We all bought our bikes for different reasons. Some buy motorcycles because they're cheaper to buy (than automobiles) and you can't beat the gas mileage compared to a Soccer Mom Suburban!

What is your primary use of your bike(s)?

I will ride my bike as much as I possibly can. Last year there were 2 to 3 week stints where my truck didnt even leave the driveway. I love it.

Same here....My car accumulated many layers of dirt during the warmer months while sitting for days/weeks at a time last season. Actually, I've owned my car for three years and have only put on approximately 15K miles during that time. My bike is my primary means of transportation from March/April to November 1st.

It's my commuter and quick errands around town vehicle. Just added a Givi trunk making it even more handy. But I still enjoy the weekends.
