Over the past couple years I've downgraded from a pickup (Toyota Tundra) to a station wagon (Volvo V70 turbo) to... considering the scooter below.

My wife and I live in the city, and I commute downtown. There are enough ways to get to work that I could stay off the highways and major thoroughfares.

So I'll likely be joining the BSD Bikers club later this fall. (Hey, a scooter is sort of a bike...) I'll get beastie stickers to slap on the sides.

Going OT: To add to scottro's comments, IMO this very much applies to the US and a large variety of products related to "appearance".

Some of the poorest folks you'll see are also the best dressed w/ the newest cell phones. (And crushing consumer debt.) Interesting testament to the power of marketing and the credit card.

I love biking but had to sell my Suzuki Hopefully when I have enough funds, I'll get another one. In the mean time, this is my "pride and joy"
