    Yes, I know, I could walk or use my bicycle. However, the daily practice is really improving my riding skills. Still terrible, but less so :cool:

    Okay. Next question: How long does it take you to ride the 3.5 klicks to work?

    About 7 minutes, from garage to garage.

    He needs an "Adventure" bike and to take the long way round, or maybe a Street Tracker would be better?

    From the summer on I expect to do the ride on an XL250, if not something even smaller. We do not have the postie bike here, but an old step-thru of some sorts would have been cool.

    why ride an XL250 in the summer and not the winter?
    with the snow and ice I think I would rather be on a dirt bike in winter!

    The Virago works, the XL needs some welding on the frame (where my brother cut it in an attempt to fit a 600 engine) as well as a new head gasket. And there has been no time to fix it yet. Or at least it has not received priority.
