Pros and Cons of motorbikes

So Ive just had a week off from college, that right am at college. The main reason i got this motorbike was so i didn't have to commute 2 hours every day on a bus packed with irate, sleepy and moody people going to work and school every morning and right before a 9 - 4 day, that is not the best atmosphere to be in.

a few other main reason I got a motorbike are:

  1. Traffic - You don't have to wait in line for the Que to go down(however in some country's "Filtering" is illegal and in others it is frond upon. 
  2. Mornings - There is nothing that will wake you up more in the morning than the rush of air flying in your face(and the odd fly)
  3. Parking- Yes parking if free for bikes so i don't have to pay that extra cost just to put my bike somewhere
However the bad point of this are:
  1. Weather - The Cold is not the best conditions to be out on a bike also in snow because that means ice and ice means falls and breaks.
  2. Vulnerability - We are in more danger than any one else. If I hit the wall on my bike, Ive got slim chances of still being alive.

  7. I don't know if filtering is the same thing as lane splitting, but if it is, I think California is the only state where it is legal here.

  9. Yeah safety and weather are definitely issues. If I lived in a warmer climate with tolerable winters I might consider getting rid of my car.
