bike as only vehicle

i have a car - volvo s80 - with heated leather seats, abs brakes, 2,4 engine and about 20 mpg. Its nice and warm to drive whatever the weather. But I miss my bike - xtz750 super tenere, which was too high for me, too heavy in town, too uncomfortable to drive with passenger, was a bit too heavy with petrol. and it wasnt too pleasant to drive in uk - it is a bike for driving on the bad roads fast, and there are no roads for this kind of bike. I was driving every day. when its cold outside - i was freezing, when it was rainy i was wet. you find a lot of bike minuses when you have to ride it every day. thats why I`ve bought a car - to keep my ass warm. and now i want to sacrifice with comfort  to biking. I never drove bike all year round.  So, if somebody driving bike all year and use it as only vehicle could you share your experience how is it. how to dress warm enough and still look casual? how to fight rain drops on visor? can actually bike replace car as only vehicle?i need bike for everything - commuting, shopping, driving out for long weekend with girlfriend. and i cant afford bike and a car.

preunit glad you wet yourself, however english is my third language, so be more tolerant 

bmw is not perfect for passenger =) 
bike with side car is useless in traffic, but looks cool :smile

do you drive bikes only on the weekend or when its sunny? I`ve been driving for 600-800 miles in heavy rain - its not a big deal. i hate when its pissing 5 days a week and 10 minutes drive to work turn into 20 minutes...thats  just annoying. its not only about weather - its about could you replace your car with bike?

there

seems to be a sudden influx of new 'members' for whom English is not the mother tongue. Great to see such diversity but a hell of a coincidence. Patja - you need a car.

Yep

it can be done, although you'll need to think a bit about what type of bike you want and your budget.

Bloke at work has a GoldWing as his only set of wheels and he goes out on everything but snow.
