I didn't expect a bunch of bikers to be so soft when it comes to cars. Throwing a leg over a bike is harder than getting in a car lol.

No way, bikes are easy! I had no idea how incredibly inflexible my spine is until I had to get in a small car.

Maybe I'll find out when I get old. For now I'll enjoy small cars. My next car I'm getting soon doesn't even have doors.

I'm 41 and have a nice cushy german sedan. But I don't enjoy driving it (except on the freeway for long trips) And ironically I find it harder to get into than my Exige was. Modern cars with short front doors for safety make it harder to get in. The B pillar is well in front of the driver's seat now for crash protection. So I get pinched a little in between the steering wheel and B pillar while getting in. And I'm not fat at all. Next car will solve that issue; no doors, no roof, no glass. Nothing to get in the way of easy ingress. Same as a bike, which is my daily. The BMW is technically wife's car actually. I sold both my other cars this summer, so I'm bike only until my 7 arrives.

We have an F30. Modern "BMW". No longer the ultimate driving machine IMO. I still like their bikes though...

I do like the F30. Though it's definitely not without it's faults.
