I still ride my motorcycle, a Vulcan 900. Not much, just on the weekends. But I can't imagine going back to an ICE car now, even with the mindset adjustments.

I was still riding a gas bike along with my Vectrix as late as two years ago, and trying to sell an ill-advised Ebay gas bike as late as last year. But now I'm done with gas bikes as well.

Here in SoCal with its great mountains and twisty roads, couldn't imagine not enjoying riding my Suzuki GSXR1000 or my Ducati 996
on a Sunday morning in the local mountains. Or riding with a group from SoCal to Laguna Seca (~ 350+ miles) for the weekend to
attend the World Super Bike races in the summer. As with any BEV, basically not having an unlimited range and an ubiquitous energy
network is a significant detriment to enjoying "the ride".
