My other ride is a dodge hemi truck (12mpg) so I ride my Stryker as after as possible to save gas and money. If I drive the bike everyday to work it saves me around 220 bucks a month. Just so happens it's tons o fun.

I currently have too many vehicles. I have a Chevrolet Silverado 2500, lousy gas mileage. A Buick Grand National that is for the track and fair weather days. A chevy cobalt for for my 16 year old that is a dangling carrot to get her grades up. Until the grades come up I will keep saving on gas and driving it myself. Until the weather gets bad I plan to drive the Stryker everyday. The wife drives a minivan.

I have the same setup. I have a Dodge Ram with a 5.9 liter V8. 13mpg. Stryker saves me lots of cash with gas.

I'm totally with ya' on this one man! My V10 Viper truck costs me an easy $100 in gas to commute to and from work vs my Stryker at only like $13 for the same 5-day commute..... not to mention riding a bike is so much more enjoyable to ride. 8)

I have a Subaru Forrester (25mpg) and live within walking distance to my work, but I ride the bike and go about another 2 miles out of my way just so I can ride in to work LOL. Not necessarily the brightest bulb on the tree... Maybe I should have made my nickname 'Forrest'???

Same here - have a jeep 4x4 and round trip to work is about 90 miles. have to fill the jeep every other day which equals (today anyway !!) about $58 bucks. Drive the bike as much as possible - fill it everyday for about $10. Plus - as you said - it's a whole lot more fun!

I use the bike to work whenever I can because like everyone said its a lot cheaper than my other rides. I have a 05 Jeep Tj and an 09 Toyota Tundra...both of which have a small lift, big tires, and a thirsty engine!
