you just need to be able to justify it better For me, well I used to drive to and from work in my 98 Chevy pickup. Well what I was paying in gas alone was more than what Im paying for my monthly bike payment.

Yup. Of course, I feel guilty commuting even on that, because I should be riding the pedal-powered two-wheeled vehicle anyway, but...

Awesome, hagen! I like the propane tank on the tail. You gotta brew, right? And the BRP ... that looks like a bike I'd get arrested on immediately. Way too fun!

So hagen, erhover and Mike, do you other SV riders ever check out svrider.com? There's a ton of really, really great info to be had over there. I'm e lo there, too.
