Anyone here that transitioned from bicycle to motorcycle, how happy are you with your decision? Are they they much better?

I loved riding motorcycles but my passion is in bicycles. My dad was the other way around, since he started riding motorcycles at 9 and had a passion for them he wanted to share even if he likes bicycles too. He's the reason I'm hooked on two wheels, regardless of whether it be human or gas powered. Bikes are fun.

How does that handle at speed, in a crosswind? Can’t think of anything better, but looks pretty sketch.

What happens when you go over a bump, looks like it would tear off the frame

No, but recumbents did introduce me to feet-forward motorcycles, which are like the bents of the motorcycle world, and they're awesome.

That would be a pretty cool last name to have.

I was a cycling fool pre-16. Got my license and that shit ended quick... had several motorcycles over the years and while they are awesome, cellphones and general retardation with cagers became too much of a problem. Basically the risk to reward just isn't worth it anymore.
Just last week bought myself a decent bicycle again and rediscovered the lost joy.

Bicycles and motorcycles really complement each other. As a kid I remember huffing and puffing up big hills on my mountain bike and seeing motorcycles zoom past effortlessly. It always made me yearn for one. From 16-26 I hardly touched a bicycle and rode motorcycles around 3 continents. In my late 20s I started road cycling and absolutely loved it. It's like touring on a motorcycle but at a slower pace that is much more rewarding physically and mentally. I notice a lot more at bicycle speeds than at motorcycles speeds and really enjoy covering long distances under my own power. I still have a motorcycle but with my limited time, I tend to get on the bicycles much more often these days.
