Unless you have an iron ass, wrists, back and have eyes in the back of your head, NO. However, great for splitting traffic though.

In relation to other bikes in the universe, the simple answer is NO. There are a hundred better bikes that are far better for that purpose.
If you have no other ride to work... then the simple answer is YES. It will get you to work

Yes, los angeles traffic, 35 mile distance, took me anywhere from 30 to 50 minutes.John said:OK, but were you in Los Angeles traffic for 3 hours a day? I can do a 30 minute ride on my torture rack 916 without a problem. I'm talking about a real commute here.
