I like to ride the Moonpie to save gas - plus I just dig cruising back and forth to work on it (and ya'll know why that's true!) Weather and temp basically dictate my willingness to can the cage and take the pie. My ride to work is only 7 miles one way and I live in a fairly kickback area of the country. In other words, no road rage issues here. A real easy commute. Even if I take my car it's not going to bust the bank with fuel costs. So - that's why I can do either and not worry about it.
