You really have not experienced Second Life until you ride a motorcycle. Of course you can run into place where the lag is so bad and you move as fast as a snail, but there are place you can ride and fly as fast as the wind.
The very cool thing is that you see things you would never see by just teleporting from one spot to another.
I was so tempted to drive through the Marine Corps Base and check it out, but even here in Second Life you show respect towards America's finest. We took the other direction.
You bet I stopped at the Yard Sale along the road. You just never know what treasures you can find. (LOL, like I need anything else in my inventory)
