Last week, Nationwide Insurance Company published the results of a survey regarding higher gas prices and increased motorcycle riding.

The survey shows that 35 percent of motorcycle owners plan to ride their bikes more over the next year as a result of higher gas prices, and that they'll be turning their riding hobby into an everyday form of transportation.

It also shows that motorcycle owners spent 26 percent of their total riding time last year commuting to work.

The survey, conducted by Brandware of 2,544 motorcycle, power boat, bass boat and ATV owners, shows that both male and female motorcyclists expect to ride their bikes for approximately 22 more hours than they did in the past year. Male motorcyclists expect to ride 172 hours over the next year, while female riders expect to ride 146 hours.

It goes on to show that motorcyclists are so passionate about their fuel-efficient bikes, they will pay $3 to $4 more per gallon before they stop riding.

Nationwide Insurance commissioned the survey as part of its effort to market its motorcycle insurance policies.
