Nice ride, although I prefer 4 wheels myself.

We used to have a Yamy 4 wheeler here at work. Groovy little machine. Big down side... it had no gears.
Let me clarify that. Park, Rev, For (high & Low).
Just use the lever shift and away you go(lik an automatic) . The Honda before it was better. Manual. Much more fun. We're trying to get one again for weed spraying, especially hard to reach areas. The John Deere Gator can only go so far.

Those vehicles are no comparison with my bike, goes faster, stops faster with ABS, gets better fuel economy.

No argument there whatsoever.
The only 2 wheel I rode was a road/trail bike 125cc in the bush nearly 25 years ago. Heap of fun, but no power.
If I were to go out on a 'bike' now I'd be facing DIVORCE !! Traffic is a lot meaner nowadays I reckon.

HOV lanes help a lot! We get to use them all the time.

High Occupancy Vehicle lanes for carpooling cars. All M/C get to use them due to MPG quotient.

What town/city you in ?
I'm just out of Geelong (states 2nd biggest city). But same as over there. You grow up knowing where to go and how to get there without GPS etc.

I am Phoenix, US #5 or #6 biggest. The city is larger than LA in size, and the metro area is 6X LA in area. You need a GPS!

Absolutely !!
Tell me... with the GPS, are there extra charges on top of the actual purchase. Like a monthly/annual service fee or upgrades etc ?

With the 2460LMT, LMT means Lifetime Maps and Traffic included, so no extra charges. The Zumo on the bike had a one time traffic charge of $60 and a $79 Lifetime map card, both paid long ago, so I get that on that too.

The whole issue was the loss of MSN making the Zumo use in the car no longer needed. So I got the 2nd GPS for the car, and the waterproof Zumo takes on 100% M/C duty.
