While I like Ubuntu there is no real reason that you need add another OS unless you just want to. I would suggest stopping for a cup of coffee once a day & plugging in for a quick charge as well. There are always outlets if you look for them. You might have to refill that cup though for a full charge
Since you have a 12 volt outlet on your bike, maybe a small inverter just to charge your netbook while driving. You might have to use some automotive paint shop tape to keep the cord out of your way while riding.
