Re: Anyone have a motorcycle?
My DH has a bike. The bike he owns he purchased used, from my dad, for $1500. He already had a helmet from his previous bike but he doesn't have winter weather gear, we figure that would be about $200 ish, and the helmet cost us about $75. Plates on the bike cost us $65 a year, insurance is only $8 a month, liability only because it's a 1987.
Maint. we haven't put much in. About $90 for one tire and we have only had it about 9 months of the last year. DH busted off a foot peg, that was $25 to replace but it was his mistake that cause that. Otherwise we haven't put anything into it.
Gas, when he takes the car to work 5 days a week, it costs twice as much as it costs to take the bike to work 5 days a week.
