I'll sell you premium gasoline, the good stuff from California, for the next year at $2.90 per gallon. If you order over 1000 gallons I won't charge for delivery.

Default Get real

Wait a minute. I have some smoke jumper buddies who disagree with you and kick you ass doing it. Yes structure fires are different. But you have lots of water, equipment etc. i.e you have fire hydrant on every block for Christ's sake. Try fighting a fire with no water only a chainsaw, pulaski and shovel..Wildfires can be very unpredictable because of terrain, fuel, and weather conditions. God you are big jerk. I am going to enjoy beating you.

Default Who Cares? HOV's Rock!

For me it is all about access to the HOV lane here in Houston. I don't really care about the cost of gas. The bike might be cheaper than the cage on a per mile basis, but not by much and only because I do my own maintenance on both. Heck, I would pay a premium to ride the bike as long as the HOV lane shaves my commute from an hour and a half down to 35 minutes.

You aren't, and never were, a firefighter no matter how many 'smoke jumper' buddies you have. Just 'facts and data' for another wannabe firefighter. Dime a doz.

Default Not going there.

Whatever, I am not going to sink to your level and put you down about last career. Wildfires vs structure fires are different. People die in each. Ask Buz about wildfires in Southern California.. One of my buddies was from there where stories are famous of city fireman with their heavy gear dumping boatloads of water on brush and trees only for it to flair up again... i.e. they were out of their element. CDF crews had to go in and save homes cause city firmans didn't know how to do it. i.e build a permeter use a chain saw to cut down burning trees if necessary.. .

Default Excellent Point

Agreed.. here in Seattle its the same way. I had to move to another location in August my commute went from averaging by car 40 min to 1 hr 15 min sometime 2.5 hrs if there is an accident or rain (yes people forget they can't stop as fast in the rain and tail gate etc.). I convinced my wife that I have to start riding my bike again. Excellent point Steve time is money..my bike probably costs more to maintain (valve adjustments, tires etc.) but the time saved more than makes up the difference. Wish my bike hand antilock brakes though cause of the rain and the idiots who pull out in front of you while you are going fast in the HOV lane..
