Hi Forum, I currently work right next to town hall station and I normally get to work at around 5:30-6:30am. I am just about to move to Wollstonecraft (7.5-8km from work). I am debating if I commute into work or catch the train. Both trips take around 15 - 20 mins. Motorcycle Stats VTR250 2001 - 250km per 11L tank which is around $0.05 per km. Thats around $0.8-$1.00 per day. Toll - $90 per quarter which is around $1.50 per day if I do it every day. Parking - Free That totals around $2.50 per day Train This will be similar amounts of time but less fun but much easier. Cost - around $6 per day. Looking at this, motorcycle is cheaper and more fun. What I am worried about is wear and tear on the bike as it has done like 58k Km. I lube chain every 2 tanks or if it rains and I am strict on the oil and oil filter. I plan to get a new bike in 12 months time when I get unrestricted license but I will probably keep my vtr250 till she dies as I will use her to commute or for random trips. How much cost and wear and tare can I expect commuting on the bike?
