Mind me asking how much you paid? I'm kind of looking for a bike to save me some money.

You are looking to buy another vehicle to save money? You might want to look into how many miles it will take to start "saving your money". I would guess about 20k in miles before you even pay the bike off with gas mileage savings of said bike vs your jeep.

How do you figure? If I can get a bike for $2k that gets 5x the mpg I do it shouldn't take 20,000 miles I wouldn't think.

I only work when I'm not at school (summer, Christmas, spring break), I can get a loan and even with the payments ill be I'm the positive. I fill up about one a week now and it's $50. With a bike it'll be closer to once a month and $20 max. That's $180 savings each month. About a year it'd pay for itself.

Well, I was thinking the bike was 4k since that is what they run around here. Even buying one at 2k, you will still need more insurance, helmet, yada yada, but we will keep it simple at 2k. Mileage on those is 40 to 75 mpg. So lets say 60 mpg and say your jeep is 15 mpg. Gas is about $4.

So your jeep will do 60 miles for $16 and the bike will do 60 miles for $4 saving you $12 for every 60 miles. To get to $2k savings (cost o' bike), you would need to drive 9999.9 miles and once again that doesn't take into account maintenance or sticker purchasing or whatever you will add to the bike. Just something to think about before you go buy something to save you money.

True. I didn't even think about insurance or anything like that.

Sorry, didn't notice you asked me. I picked it up for 1550$.

As for the mileage debate.

It's a 70 mile round trip to school every day.

My bike gets 70mpg(coincidence)

My zj gets 16mpg. my YJ gets 13-14mpg

In one week ill drive 350 miles to school, one year 18,200+/-

So...$3.30 for gas

Zj= 3,753.75$

Yj= 4,620$

Bike= 858$

My bike will pay it's self off in less than a year.

Nice. I don't drive quite that much, but I usually try and fill up back home where it's only about $3.08, so the numbers may be fairly close.

Thanks for that break down.

No problem, I actually surprised myself with the final numbers.

Just bought it in December as a great toy to build up, and with the CRAZY winter snow this year (that's my story and I'm sticking to it) it has been my DD ever since. With a 40 mile commute and not wanting to put too many miles on it, It will be back to sharing the daily drive duties with a Honda very soon. Of course the better MPG on the Honda will leave me more money in the pocket book to spend on the TJ.
