Then I turned 16 and promptly forgot about my bike and thought only about my car.  I could get places even faster still, and if it was raining I didn’t get soaked.  Forget about tiring myself out going up a hill as well, all I had to do was shift more of my weight to my right foot. Also carrying on a conversation while getting from place to place was much more convenient since the other person I was talking to was sitting next to me, going the same speed as me, and we didn't have to worry about steering into each other. I could go pretty much anywhere I wanted with little to no physical exertion, aside from finding my keys.
