Bikes: Mutable Distances.

Have you noticed that two points are further apart via bike than they are by car?

Work is only 7.5 miles away in the Beemer, but I can't seem to shorten the trip down past 9.7 miles on the Ninjette. Similarly, the local inconvenience store is only 2.6 miles from my doorstep by roadster, but more than twice that when travelling by 250R.

There's a new law of physics in there, somewhere...
