Gas prices going up get your bike ready

Expect to see more bikes on the road with the gas prices going up .

""Gas Prices Are Going Up To $4 Per Gallon - Save On Gas - Ride A Motorcycle""
I have no problem with that , weather permitting

Check this article on gas prices and motorcycles

"If you are one of those people who crave the thrill of the open road and the wind in your face and you are sick of the ever increasing cost of commuting, invest in a motorcycle! "

Im going to be ready. Bagging the X this spring, I will finally be able to carry more than a cell phone. I will be able to take a lunch and things to work so I can let the truck sit unless it looks like rain.

Bags may be my next purchase , when I got the bike I never plan on adding anything just keep it stock , well that ship sailed

Once the mod bug hits, the bike is never done. I joined this forum before I bought my X in 08. Came home from the dealer, and with 30 miles on the clock I was drilling holes in the pipes to open her up. Its been a long list ever since.

Let's just hope that spring comes soon just like 2012. Riding commenced in March. Gas prices going up is a real pain in the ass, you know just where you wear your wallet.

remember when Bush was president when gas prices hit near 4 bucks and daily papers said Bush did it. What will he do about it!! Not a peep now.

Near 40 mpg makes it enjoyable even with it going up some. Should hit 4 bucks by late March, April.

Gas prices have been going up and down just ike the temps here in NW Indiana. Less than a week ago I saw the gas price on my way to work at 3:30 am @ 3.95 and that is the cheap stuff. Within this last week I have seen it fluctuate from 3.69-3.89. I paid 3.88 yesterday and this morning it is 3.78....Absolutely crazy...
