I stay out of the fast lane when the freeways are open. I'm only willing to go 70-75 (speed limit is 65) when lots of drivers are doing 75-80 and some are at 80+. These speeds make for some horrific crashes.

My momís mom never drove. Gramps did.

My mom crashed during her first license test on a closed course. My dad had a partially paralyzed right hand from being turned around during a breach birth and never drove. My sister has never had a license. My family didnít own a car between Ď83 and Ď95.

Iím a cautious and excellent driver.

My dad's mother never drove, my aunt didn't get a driver's license till she was almost 30.
I had my license revolked by my parents, @ 17, based on my grandfather saying I'm a maniac behind the wheel. His car ran out of gas and he walked to our house in freezing Temps during a blizzard. I took him to get gas, and jump start his car.
My dad quit driving when he retired due to road rage. My mom thought he was going to have a heart attack.
I drive in the left lane because I am passing..... everyone. If you are in 2nd place you are just the first looser.

You think you're better than me?! It's go time!

Hey, genejockey , Zwift is better on a computer, as you said. Marginally, but enough to be worth carrying the laptop to the basement.

I hosted TG dinner so I didn’t need to do any traveling at all this weekend. Car hasn’t moved since Wednesday. We will see what Christmas has in store for us.

By the way, what is a "first looser" in the context of a race. :foo:

This is how it starts. Next you'll be shopping for a gaming rig.....

This is how my ex wife drove. If a car passed her she would pass it back, or at least match speed with it. When we had the long commute from the mountains she got 4 speeding tickets in about a year. Besides the fines, our insurance doubled. According to her, each of the tickets was the cop's fault.

I'll put spacers in my earlobes first, buddy boy, although I might encourage LSS to replace her aging desktop Mac.:innocent:

They're called "gauges" and you might look sharp with them.:p

Just don't get into a fight.

I’m an excellent driver as long as you don’t include parking in which case, I’m a terrible driver.

Thanks for that visual. Love the idea, but not safe for offshore sailing.

Reminds me of the Absolute Black OSPW which is causing quite a stir on the Internet lately.

I imagine they would swing around and bop you on the side of your head when you get up to 40 mph on the bike. Might make cool noises, though.

Gotta say, the bling factor is really high.
