My 2013 Motorcycle VS Gas Prices Battle

I've owned a motorcycle now for 10 years.  In the last few years with the gas prices soaring I've told myself every spring that I'm going to ride to work no matter what to save money on gas.   My truck gets 13 mpg in town, my bike gets 55+ mpg.  It's a no brainer, taking the bike.  Eventually, every year I get lazy and instead of taking the time to put on rain gear or warmer clothing, I hop in the truck.  NOT THIS YEAR.  Here's my challenge:
