  • Am I mad? 110km commute on a bike

    I'm thinking of moving to Byford (comments about the suburb welcome)

    It's about 50 - 52 kms from Byford to my work in Ossie Park (Ankatel Road - Thomas Road - Kwinana Freeway). Thats over 100km every day on a bike. Took me about 35 minutes today at 4.30, so doesnt seem too bad in rush hour.

    It's nearly twice my current commute of Ossie Park to Carramar (past Joondalup).

    Am I mad even considering this?

      Yes, there's a Centrelink office in Armadale. Much closer.

        Ossie park to Byford on a zx12 actually sounds like a pretty sweet way to unwind at the end of the day.

            more than 100km in 35 mins means you're travelling an average of at least 172km/h...

            EDIT: Ingore me, misread distances...

                sounds like a shit ride in windy rain and hail.
                probably ok in summer.
                i think commuting those kind of distances would suck the fun out of riding.

                    Pfft, do more then that everyday, but then again. Sort of why I bought the FZ, very comfy ride for being my daily commute.

                      Well it sure beats the option of doing the same commute in a car.

                      I do approx 90kms a day commute, and I much prefer it on the bike, no matter what weather.

                        That's about my daily commute to uni and back.

                          itd be much nicer on the bike and the fact that you wont have to waste your time sitting in traffic but rather splitting through all the crap.

                            Oh yeah, forgot to mention that I'll be selling the ZX12R if I go ahead with the move. It's too expensive to run for those distances.

                            I'll be looking for a bike that's:

                            1) Comfy
                            2) Cheap, cheap, cheap to run
                            3) At least a 500
                            4) Hopefully got some fairing protection from the weather
                            5) On the suggestion of a friend, dare I suggest a shaft-drive bike (oh dear, I've probably done it now - wait for the insults to start flying)
