Why mess around with a motorcycle, when you can ride a pedal bike? I'm telling you, when the weather gets nicer I'm getting my bike back out. Its nice being able to go places for free. I don't mind riding 5 miles or so on a bike. I get enjoyment from it. I used to ride 20+ miles a day in the summer like 3 years ago, then I got a life, but I might start doing it again. Pedal bikes are cheap!

I've ridden my bike to autozone before, and I'm not scared to do it again! You should see the faces I get though.

At the begining of last school year I bought a brand new 21 speed Mongoose mountain bike with all the goodies. (I'll get some pics when the snow melts enough that I can get out to the shed and get it, its pretty sweet) I rode that thing to school like everyday last year, assuming it wasn't raining, and there wasn't snow on the ground. I still ride my bike around my subdivision all the time. All the kids in my subdivision ask me why I still ride it, I ask them if they've ever had to buy gas before, and they shut up.

I would ride to work too if it was realistic for me too. My work is 8 miles from my house if I take the freeway, but the backroads make it about twice that, so it isn't realistic to ride my bike there. I would if it were only the 8 miles though.

I pay +0.92cents for Octane 91..... the car needs a tank at least once a week.
Really sucks.... and I only see prices going up. I've already had some days where I paid 0.99cents/litre for Octane 91....

$2.05 for regular
$2.25 for 91 octane premium. The other choice is 100 octane and I'm scared to check. :(
