I've considered bicycling. One problem with it is I work second shift so the I'm there when the trucks are in for the day, getting off at 11:00 p.m.. Even though my commute is mostly through a residential area, I don't want to become a human hood ornament. I have a real bright LED flasher on the back of my bike, but some people are too distracted, drunk, or flat out goofy to see taillights on a car let alone a bicycle. The temperature can get pretty cool here at night too. I'm thinking about giving it a go though, it would be a good way to wind down after a tough shift.

I keep a pretty close watch on inside of my oil filler cap to make sure I don't have condensation building up in the crankcase.
