    Wish me luck, taking the leap.

    Our one car is up for sale, would it be in bad taste to advertise in a carfree forum? Probably eh? I plan to use the non-loan money to buy a HID light (commute home will be about 15 miles @ 00:00 hours on dark roads), some rain gear, a flex car account, a bus pass, and whatever other goodies I deem necessary and can afford. You all can pat yourselves on the back for taking another car off the road, probably would not have even thought it possible if I hadn't stumbled accross these forums. Fate perhaps. Thanks!

    Just sold my car last week. G/f has offered me too many rides since then . Although she has a car, I though I would feel naked without one. Instead, it feels great.
    I rode in the dark all last winter. It's a lot of fun on most roads / paths. If you have lots of turns, consider a headlight. That is what I prefer. A 20 watt Jet light will give you a nice wide angle, and doubles as a great mtb light if you want one. HID is the best for mostly straight roads. Good luck. Should be fun.

    Congrats!

    Be sure to check out the commuting and winter riding forums for tips on night riding.
