    Yes and no. If you hit something, you're dead for sure. However, if the bike slides out from under you, and you are just sliding on the road, a helmet and good jacket give you a pretty good chance of walking away without serious injuries.
    I'm not American. We have different insurance. I don't know any numbers, but my boss literally was licensed this past weekend and talked about how expensive it is relative to him driving his 'burban.

    I read that article. It's an interesting concept but it seems uncomfortable and not very functional for distance riding. I was interested in the name of MBTI, of viewing the number of SPs who would respond to this thread. Interestingly, but not surprisingly, that I share Gray's sentiments.

    I think that there are a lot of Introverts who enjoy cycle riding. How many ways can you travel hundreds of miles in the company of others without having to speak?

    The look, the price, the fuel economy, the fact that it's different.

    That it can be maintained with a basic set of hand tools.

    It does look unique and simple. I hope you get one soon. Do you currently ride?

    No, although I have a good friend who would let me learn on his Suzuki Savage. I would very much enjoy the Enfield; I generally enjoy all things retro.
