Haven't had a car of my own in 9 months and hardly miss it. Wife's car is available once in a while but rarely need it. Mostly doing it because of financial reasons as I graduate from grad school in Dec after 27 mo program. After graduation I plan on adding a sport tour with hard bags (and a track bike, and a dirt bike, and a full tour, and ......) and then it'll be even easier not to own a car. It's a bit of a PITA running errands and such without storage space. Other than that I love riding every day, makes the commute more fun.
Might get an old truck for towing to the track but other than that don't see a real big need for a car after graduation.
Save 300-500/mo in payments and insurance, 5 grand a year is a lot of savings.
I've been using my bike(s) for my only transportation for about 6 months now. I have a 2000 Z28 that I don't drive and have it for sale, anyone interested? My wife hauls the groceries in her SUV, so I don't have to worry about trips to the store. About the best thing about southern New Mexico is no rain so it's riding everyday.
Well, unless you have amazing balance, chains or studs, and some super warm clothing, you can't get by w/ just a bike in WI. It rains too much in the summer, too. I hope to not drive my car to work more than a dozen times this summer, but I doubt I'll be able to do that.
