Bike purchase and depreciation
Gear (helmet, boots, gloves, not, trs, etc.)
Training & tests

Servicing 3-5000 miles, tyres similar (and both more expensive than car)

I was thinking using a motorbike as a subsistute for a car currently, but honestly I'd never want to do anything other than leisure riding, I just don't see the point in using a motorbike as a only vehicle, so will wait until I'm in a position to have both a bike and a car alongside my multitude of other cars
