Do you drive a car or ride a bike ?
My husband bought me a scooter for work & I wondered if many of you use one or do most drive a car ?
I have a car, bike, and scooter. I use all three regularly. The scooter is the best option if I am just driving to someplace near by. It gets great gas mileage. Yes, I do look a little ridiculous being six foot four and riding a scooter but hey I am saving money. My suggestion is that if you could not walk to your destination in 10-20min; You might want to take a vehicle instead. Also, do not go on any main roads since scooters have a max speed of 35 mph (in most states) before they are considered motorcycles.
I live in a very rural area where there is no public transportation, and the roads are mountainous. So I drive my car. But I really only use it a couple of days per week.
I drive a car, but I have been talking to my hubby about getting a scooter for those short trips to the grocery,etc. The gas savings would be a benefit.
Definitely uses less gasoline than a car. Just make sure to wear protection, and brake soon when you see trouble. Always look around you, left, right, ahead, and behind. Flash your brake lights when you are stopped at a traffic signal to help get drivers' attention behind you. If you can, take a motorcycle safety course.
I ride my motorcycle around New York City on the weekends, and sometimes during the week when I have to run around a lot.
Both. A car is necessary for my work and because I have kids to move around. A bike is my preferred mode of transport, my stress relief, pastime and transport for those shorter journeys into the office when I don't have to wear a suit. Given a choice the bike would win in all but the worst weather.
In my collage days, I used to ride a bike and I enjoyed it too much...now since past many years I drive a car daily..
I drive a car and I ride a Yahama 250 SR custom bike. I love both; I've always loved driving and used to do some rallying. My partner got me started on bikes, first riding pillion then learning to ride myself.
My car is my first love; I'm happy to drive every day and I don't care how many miles I have to go, I'll just get into the groove and keep going! I've always drive to work and on holidays.
I ride my bike purely for pleasure on dry, sunny days around the country roads; we ride in convoy and it's great fun.

This topic seems to be almost devoid of conversation. What form of transport do you use?Car, bicycle, public transport . . . ? Why? What would you like to drive, if you could?

Why does riding a bike or moped get looked down on in much of the USA?I live in southern USA, and it seems that here there is a negative view of people who ride bikes or mopeds or even walk to get where they need to go. It is seen by many as being poor or low class. Isn't riding bikes or mopeds a...

For all you motorcyclists out there. Is it best to start out with a scooter or motorcycle?I am personally thinking a scooter/moped is best for me right now since I don't see that as being much of a jump from my electric bike. The price is better than a motorcycle as well. The only thing is, is a...

My 12 year old recently went on a camping trip with some of his dads friends. While on this 'camping' trip the following happened. The old ladys grand-daughter was 'upset' so the woman gave her car keys to my son and told him to take her grand-daughter for a drive. He said it was only...

How far is too far for a day trip?If you don't want to spend the night somewhere, how far is too far for just a day trip? We are considering making a 3 1/2 hour drive to the beach spending 3-5 hours there then making the ride back. Too far with kids? Would it be too far for you?
