Well, the nice thing is they have created reasons for this. In Wrath, your dainty flying mount couldn't fly in the cold air of Northrend until you had time and money to train them. In Cata, they couldn't get around it and let everyone fly. In MoP, your mount may be able to handle cold, but it can't handle high winds (this is how I imagine the references to the four winds). In Wrath, and hopefully in MoP, you could get a Tome to pass down the training instructions to your other toons.I do wish there was more incentive to ride. My default flying mount is a drake and to realize that it's just as useful to mount and fly 6 feet to the next thing as it is to get on my guild mount or hog or whatever seems like overkill. Maybe if they made a NOS for mechanical mounts. Or made flying into a plainstriding thing where your first several flaps are quite slow but then you get to high speeds. I mean, flying is significantly faster than anything else. Even 280 to 310 is noticeable, but flying is 100 (ground) to 160 to 280 to 310 depending on training. It's noticeable just hitting the jump button to get slightly airborne when you train from 160 to 280.
