This is simple cause I'm still a noob to the whole 2wheeled scene. I would be driving a car I hate and spending my money on a quarter+ of dro every 2 weeks and bullshit instead of something I Really love and proud of. Haven't smoked since I got mine and have no urge too. I'd also be skateboarding alot more.

I just got back on after not being able to ride for a year. Some of the best people I have ever met have been from riding (some of the most arogant too tho). as for how my life would be different< well my wife and my orthopedist would be a lot happier with me, and I would miss out on some good times as I have for the past year, but not much more than that. I choose to ride

it is hard for me think in those terms... I have had bikes since 1964...I did not always ride regularly, but always had them around...it is like i have no memory that does not include bikes... the are associated with my boys learning to walk and talk.. my oldest boys first words included "music-cycle", he did not say motorcycle correctly...and since I played guitar and rode bikes, he combined the two worlds and called my bike a music cycle... he is 40 now...he also spent 28 days in traction when he was in 5th grade from a crash on his dirt bike... but that is just another bike memory...
my dad was a biker, so i come by it honestly

Riding does take away a lot of my free time to do other things like I used to.
Now that I have two kids and a wife it does take a way time for me to spend with them. I usually let my wife watch the kids so I can go out and ride but I know at the end of the day I'm taking away from them something I will never replace once is lost... Time!

I think at one point I will stop riding as much as I do now.. I will spend more time with them but only time will tell.

I can see my son riding with me in a few years later.

I'd spend a load more money on my cars. Bike's are awesome. You can spend less than 1/4 the price of a reg midsize car(Camry, Accord) and get performance that'll smoke 99% of all cars on the road. I probably am done messing with cars, they are just transportation to me from now on.

and this is why I pick bikes on top of sport cars.

Easier for me to fix

theres so much passion in motorcycles and riding...hard to imagine what would be fulfilling enough to replace it.
my closest people all ride and the lifestyle is just engrained in our everyday lives.
life without bikes would suck.

I'd have fewer scars, more money and an ankle that worked ALL the time.
On the other hand I woulda missed out on an unbelievable amount of good times and good memories.


I think it's been a fair trade so far.

I would probably just have a nicer car, and a few less scars.
