Not counting winter, Do you daily your bike?

Personally I daily my Daytona. My honda accord is burning oil and gets 28mpg, my 99 5.9L ram gets less than 12 mpg, and I need a new driveshaft (anyone have one?) and Ive been getting 40-48mpg on the daytona. Oh, and its way more fun. My Track 240sx...........buddy crashed it. that used to be my daily ridiculously uncomfortable drifter.......I miss it so much.

The Daytona for most things (mostly just work), the Subie for when I need to carry people/stuff.

I didn't even own a car for 7 years commuted every work day on the bike rain, shine, or snow. I'm so over that. Weather or not I rather have a cage around me to fight the a-holes in their cars that want to run me over. I feel far safer at the track at 140mph then I do riding a block in traffic.

Daytona for daily dry weather riding.*


Car for wet weather and when I need to take a passenger, or for stuff close by, then I walk.

Daily even in the "winter"! It gets to about 40* here in the winter...it still requires me to have some kind of cold weather/wet gear.

I ride everyday unless I have a meeting with my execs or it is snowing when I go into work, and car is only when I have to haul something way to big for my bike.

If it's dry then I ride. I'm not a fan of setting in traffic in the rain.
