Shortcut To Work

Post  2wheelsagain on Wed 31 Jan 2018, 2:56 pm

I've long suspected but think I can now confirm that my bike seems to know a shortcut to work. The time difference on my 40km rural commute between the bike and car is about 6 minutes.
That has to be a short cut surely? What else can it be? Razz  Anyone else notice similar time warping on a bike?

That's definitely not just a Honda thing - my Bandit has the ability to merge through traffic like it's moving Matrix-style, thereby cutting down the travel time.  bounce

My Bandit cuts 10-15 minutes off of the 11km trip

My Pushbike cuts 2km off the same trip and with a tail wind can match car times

Good to see you got back ok ...........look forward to hearing more about the trip .

2WA , in some cases , the extra time made up is needed sometimes to make up for the last minute changes to how much gear you have to put on before you leave   Laughing

Every journey is a short cut by bike in Briz.
Example one only: A couple of times I've had to do short stint at a particular work shop, being 38 km's from door step to work shop. In the mornings, fairly easy 40-45 mins, borh car and bike, BUT, in the afternoon... bike, 50 mins, and car....1:20-2:00 hrs.
Brisbane traffic is a joke.
