Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

We're always excited. We're just ... you know ... introverts. We hold in our emotions too much.

I attempted a double metric only once. I fell short by about 4 km. I just didn't have the km in me.

I have zero interest in Porsche pics. The Saturn and Honda would be as good.

One thing that amazes/cracks me up is how turn-of-the-century S2000s regularly go for more than similar year/mileage/condition Boxsters these days.

HAOTD to excite the Vols of the world.

Ours too. I don't recall EVER using that garage for cars in 26 years living here. It's called a "two car garage, but if you put two cars in it side by side, they'd have to be convertibles for you to get out.

I tell my wife I’d downsize to a 2k sq. ft. house if it includes a finished 6-car garage with HVAC.

A man needs a place to hang out, after all.

The owner at my last job had an old house in the hills. Small house but he built a 9 car garage on the property. He also kept a bunch of his cars at the dealership. When he died his son sold off a lot of the collection and sold one of the buildings at the dealer.

Yes. That was back when it was new in 2014.

I got it for a very nice discount, because the 2015s were coming out, with the fancy dash and all the screens. I have never regretted NOT getting all that crap.

Front end of the mini van. 6 cylinders of awesomeness. 3 blue ray players to add to my already distracted driving. 3 rows of stowaway seats for my bike storing pleasure. 25 mpg on highway, 13mpg city. Accelerates like a porsche with 4 flat tires. This thing is a dream machine.


The Ritchey is nice too.
