I'll just wait for the midlife crisis to hit before I go that far marra ;)
It makes sense, I've tried all the options for commuting.
8 years on the metro- unreliable, takes about 50mins on a good day when you include walking either side
1 year cycling - good exercise but roads are falling apart and it's not that much fun in the cold months
occasional car- well over an hour of sitting in queues, £10+ a day to park
1 year motorbike - 20-25mins door to do, free parking, no worries about breakdowns, can be cold in winter but it was -7 one morning and plenty of layers meant I was fine. Gives the freedom to go elsewhere on my way home too.

Imagine pulling up to graft on a motorbike :lol: Proper leaning owa, knee almost on the road and flashing your pass at the gate :lol:

Clearly less so than the metro does ;)

No gate, free covered parking next to out of hours access door. Have a quick change in the toilets on the way to the office, no body would know I used a bike, well apart from when I’m there on time and all the people on peasant transport arent.
