Riding for Pleasure vs. Business ?

Curious...

how much time do you guys ride for fun/ meets/ events
Vs. commuting to work/ the store/ meet with ppl ( non-moto related ppl )

Mine is probably 20% pleasure , 80 % business

I'm about with you- I ride downtown daily to school, but I hardly make group rides, meets, or social events on the bike.

It's hard with the kids - they demand some attention, even at their age.

i'd say 90% commuting, 10% etc (grocery getting, pleasure ride, that sort of thing)
but i do a lot of commuting on my bike. people begged me not to ride while ike was coming through. like no , but yeah, they thought i would.
these statistics are also not taking into consideration that my ish is still broken and i havent really ridden on it since spring.

80% commuting
15% pleasure riding
5% errands / hanging out

lately its been about 50/50 commuting between bike/car so i ride the out of it but i dont get that much weekend riding in so it looks like a giant ratio gap.

95% commuting 5% pleasure so far. Don't feel comfortable in groups. And all my friends and family with bikes are a couple hours away. So mostly binness.
