Boots, jeans, jacket, gloves, no matter what the weather, can be bloody uncomfortable on a 42 degree summer day (and your jacket begins to really SMELL after a few of them!).
And wearing a helmet means never growing my hair longer than army-regulations dictate, I don't want to save money on petrol and spend it on shampoo!
But all of this pales in comparison to the unbelievable savings on petrol, and my economising doesn't come close to the missus, who rides a 180cc Yamaha scooter.
Plus, there's my uni students who, being young, are impressed by a lecturer who wears a leather jacket and rides a big (even if old) bike.

I want a Hayabusa. Those things are fast and I love speed. I want to get a motorcycle license, but will have to wait until I finish High School and move out.

I still have my fathers olde Lambretta in my garage ...where it has been stored for years. It is a two stroke engine and it was built in the 1950s. One of these days I will have to get it on the road again. It is a three speed with clutch. Now days most of these scooters seem to be some kind of automatic shifting transmission...or belt drive.
