Car milage vs Bike

My Honda Pilot gets 20 mpg. My '83 Beemer gets 45. It's a no-brainer.

Saving Gas

I ride a 2000 Kawasaki Voyager 1200 and get about 300 miles to 6.1 gal compared to my F150 getting 300 miles to 25 gal. I comute to work every chance I can. The view is much better on 2 wheels and I can still have my coffee on the way.

I bought my v-star 650 because gas at the time was five dollars

My 1990 chevy pick up only gets ten miles per gallon and my v-star gets between 40 and 50,you do the math.

none of you bikers are saving any money and you know it too!

I too get 2x more mi/gal than my cage - BUT none of you bikers are saving any money and you know it too! The costs of maintenance is the same or even higher on any bike compared to a car. How many more tires, oil changes, filters and plugs will your favorite bike take compared to your cage? And you will still be using the cage when you can't use your bike.

Fess up bikers! You ride because you LOVE it! It's in your blood! You can't quit. And if you do quit for even a short time, you can't rest until you take her for another ride. It's like needing another fix! :>)

I tell my co-workers taht the only reason I go to work is to ride my bike 2x/day! If I did not use it to commute I would not be able to enjoy my weekend until I got in the saddle and take er for a little spin just so I can relax and enjoy the time away from my ride!

I'm not alone either - am I?

I have one of the most

I have one of the most labor-intensive rides on the road, an '82 Harley Wide Glide. And riding that still saves more in the long run on maintenance. Get your calculator out and do the math. The single most expensive part is STILL the gas, if you follow your Factory maintenance schedule for the bike AND the cage. And I ride to work every day, year round, rain or shine, leathers or a T-shirt. . . guess it helps to live in San Diego, though.
