My answer to Should I buy a motorcycle or a car?
Answer by Desmond Last:
Do you want to get wet? Do you want to slide down a road into a 38 tonne articulated truck? Do you want to ride in weather so cold that you cannot undo the frozen zipper on your jeans when you are bursting to go to the loo? Do you want to watch in horrified anticipation as the car pulls out in front of you at 80 m.p.h.?
No I did not think so.
In that case make sure you get qualified tuition before you ride.
Then you will experience the freedom of the roads, the thrill of taking a corner at speed with skill, and the ability to ride anywhere and always have the social friendliness of other bike riders.
Otherwise stick to the car.
