In another thread, I commented on the possible danger of motorcycles, but for argument's sake, let's assume they are safe. In this case, is it cheaper to have one than a car or truck? What might be some arguments saying that it would be more expensive? As for the ones saying it is cheaper, some of the reasons would be obvious like the fact a smaller engine uses less fuel. Now let's look at public transport. What would be some advantages and disadvantages money-wise? Well, obviously the advantage would be in the fact that the fare is normally less than what you'd pay at the gasoline pump.
