I realllllly want to ride but won't be able to since I'll be drinking heavily on some beach in Jamaica. Maybe, I'll old school it and ride a horse throught the forrest for a minute.

Do what I did. Start your own motorcycle insurance agency and wear what ever you feel like wearing. We motorcyclist don't give a rat's a$$ what we look like (job wise) as long as the job gets done.

Assuming a 50-week work year and 5 day weeks, 32,000 miles in two years is about 64 miles (round trip) per day.

I ride to work probably 50 weeks out of the year, with the exceptions of snow/ice on the ground, or if something *requires* a truck or car.



It helps when the President of the company is an avid Motorcyclist (I estimate better than 10% of The Company rides, although I have no idea how many do it just to "suck up" to the Pres).

200 years ago, if you beat sticks against the ground and cursed at the sky, it was called Witchcraft.



Nowadays, we call it Golf...........

That'd be about right, I've put ~28,000 on my '04 FZ6 (Ultimate CommuterTM), plus probably another combined ~8,000 commuting on two other bikes.



70 miles round-trip. (Southwest MO/Northwest AR area)
