Yea. But if I'm commuting, i wear my normal clothes. Sneakers, khakis or jeans, and a button up or a polo shirt. What I'm wearing in the picture is not normal. I also wear a helmet more often then not now. If I mod this bike (not likely), it will be to have nicer components, safety mods (lights/reflectors), and cargo.

But with the nicer weather, I find myself using $5-10 of fuel every couple of weeks. This is down from $15-20 a week or more. After riding for a couple of weeks, my pants definitely feel looser and that is nothing to complain about (weight reduction mod?).
