Car vs Motorcycle vs Walking/Running

Dhaiya has quoted from Zen and the art of .. you know what

Ritesh Dahiya: Vacationing on a Motorcycle


When I had first read these lines in 1997, I was a third year student at IIT-Delhi and did not have a motorcycle. My access to any kinds of powered vechicles were limited to -

Priya scooter - Owner: Manas Garg
LML Vespa scooter - Owner: Rohit Agarwal
DTC bus - Owner: Government
Red Line bus - Owner: delhi dons

Given this limitation I had to reconstruct the quoted phrase: replace car with motorcycle and motorcycle with running /walking The central argument still holds - You are closer to nature while walking/running as compared to riding a motorcycle.

AOL Offers $299 PC (Connected Home Media)
Everyone's favorite dominant ISP introduced an intriguing offer this week: Agree to use AOL for a year, and you can purchase a low-end PC from the company for just $299. Although the deal seems like a bid to stem the flow of subscribers eager to get out from under the multicolored, dumbed-down AOL interface, the offer actually appears to be decent, assuming you're not into playing the latest 3-D games. Of course, you can get a decent Dell system for not much more than the cost of the AOL PC plus the service (about $585 when you add it all up).

I disagree! I am always busy/pre-occupied while walking/running ... And moreover, you can just see "so much" while walking/running. I still think riding a motorcycle is the best way to explore the nature :)
