I seriously think the 500X is a better choice.

Wow, Portugal is beautiful. Reminds me of Ca in places.

Eh on the bike. If I were to ever get back on a MC, this would me a good choice. But I like my rear brake on the hand.

Did you see how this guy hardly ever stops? We need more roundabouts in the states. So much more efficient than stop signs.

While you may be right, and I may be too old;) , I personally don't care for them, and usually avoid them.

I love the ones that are so narrow that a semi needs to touch BOTH curbs to make the turns!

We used to have on in Fairfax, Va. that was known as Fairfax Circle. I was an insurance adjuster there at the time. I worked a lot of accident claims that happened there. I was grateful when they changed the roads and installed red lights.

The wildest roundabout I drove on was in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, I think it was a 4 lane roundabout that was gigantic. I was like a free way in SoCal but going around in a circle, definitely not for the faint of heart!

I doubt most Americans could handle that. There's a few in CA and I remember the rotaries from back east. The work very well when people know how to use them (not for the Griswalds, "look kids Big Ben and Parliament"). I enjoyed using them on the wrong side of the road in the UK, don't forget your signals, lol.

There are a few for sale listed on this Craigs mash list . That was quick .

Good thing they found the accelerator pedal in time.

Bicycles certainly adds a new level, just throw in some pedestrians and you'll be complete.

Bicycle lanes are well marked an cyclists savvy ( and have the same right of way ). Pedestrians stay away from the major ones tho all the street ones the walkers add some spice ....and some are **** tight when you need to go on a 270 degree loop.
