I've been riding motorbikes for 10 years now and have a various bikes since I past my test 7 years ago. But every year I have a niggling feeling I should go back to cars. ( Licence Revoked) is it really worth giving my motorbike up to get a car, I can't have both. And after my initial confidence knock after breaking my leg back in Feb, I feel I have learnt from it and my riding has improved.
My commute is 17.2 miles from Darwen to Preston mostly motorway and costs me about 25 quid a week in petrol, insurance is £150 a year tax is £70 a year and parking is free. Now my only problems are the snow and ice days. Which means a £30 taxi journey or trying to get a lift. Is it really worth me paying £1200 a year to insure a car which is the same economy as my 600cc Suzuki and I have to get a £30 a month car parking permit.
Plus I need to spend money retaking my driving test. When I'm on my bike I really don't want to get rid.
