I drive about 30 klicks (18 miles) each way on country roads, can't wait to get my bike out on a regular basis (Kawasaki W650). Roll on Spring!!

^^ needs an Insight more than I do. Which can be said of most people, actually.

10.5mi there, 9.7mi back. We have asymmetrical expressway exits.

Now, how many of us would press our employers for "plug-in vehicle parking spots"?

I was driving 37 miles one way. The best part is that I never leave the city of Jacksonville and still go that far. This city is spread out way to much for people to be saving money on not driving.

Not to hijack your thread but why don't you put a poll with commute round trip mileage in it. Say something like

10+
30+
40+
50+
60+

Regards
