... I think you can bundle many of the reasons in the poll into ONE... You mix with good friends/meet new ones... for those that ride to work, its much cheaper... and it is a great way to just get away... that all can fall under the Simply for the Fun of it choice...

Multiple choices would've been better, but I sort of rolled the cameraderie/escape in with "for the fun of it." And though it's hardly the reason I ride, the mangy parking in Houston isn't so bad for us riders. There are several places I have to visit often, and parking without Mogee is a booger.

Not one mention of riding for the use of the HOV lane during peak traffic times...

I ride because I really love to ride. I've made lots of buddies and even a couple of friends since finding this site.
