Addiction 2022.2

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

Pulling out your phone to see if there's a notification is a shorter drive than turning around.

My garage door is manual. And steel. Because steel is real.

You settled for only 100 miles. I don't know . . .

Another 50 miles is a big add-on. Double metric option would've been nice.

My alarm system app on my phone shows me whether my garage door is open or not and, yes, I do have to pull over and check the app occasionally.

My main concern is whether he knows his garage door is open.

Oh I remember some of that.

You can post Honda pics if you want.

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.

Trying to decide if I should make this my first concert I attend since Covid hit. But dang $63, considering the last time I saw them was with New Order and Gene Loves Jezebel and it seems like tix were $12.

My dentist loves the S2000s. His wife (hygienist) saved her money and found him a really clean one. He had it for a couple years and one day it was parked behind his office and a woman throttled her car into a parking stop and launched it on top of the S2000. Destroyed it.

I am willing to consider posting a Saturn pic of the day, but am pretty sure the interest and/or excitement level would be too low.

yikes

S2000 might be in my future - but if prices continue to climb this option might be less attractive

on the road - it was rare for anyone to use a camelbak ...

off road - most of us used a camelbak ... sometimes I would also use one small bottle (with Cytomax or similar)

I posted a pic a couple years ago of a local used car dealer that had a load of Saturns. I thought that he had finally sold them all, but when I drove by recently, there was a half dozen more in the lot.
