Thanks!I gotta say, although I don’t own a motorcycle something keeps drawing me here to look and read. The lower cost of it all, easier maintenance and cheaper running cost is a huge appea. The bike looks nice, and you did a lot of good work on ‘er.
As an owner of several bikes, ill tell you that it's not really that much cheaper than driving a car. Maintenance intervals are a bit more frequent than cars/trucks, and tire changes do get spendy when you're replacing them every 7500-10k miles.
But, to me there's not many better ways to explore. On a motorcycle you engage more of your senses and feel like you're "in the scene" versus viewing it out a window.
I highly recommend giving it a try!
