The Switch just looks too complicated and gadgety. I remember the Wii having too many damn peripherals, and this is worse.
People are super obsessed with hating on Tesla. I don't really care. The cars are pretty nice if not as nice as people think they should be (because they don't realize the TCO is significantly lower). I would still want regular controls for a lot of interior function personally and they are just too wide.The new 5-series? Meh. Everything BMW has done since Bangle has basically made them look more like Pontiacs. Generic and uninteresting profiles. Maybe I am just old, but...
Is that raw CF with clearcoat?
I think I am liking the Rev'it Mohawks. Now to find some locally to try on.
The Vitesse ones are "almost" attractive. Using traditional colors on sport/motorcross boots just ends up being kind of weird. Kind of like Cole Haan's more extreme Nike dress shoes. I am kind of favoring the Stylmartin Indians, the hiking boot aesthetic works for motorcycle boots which need to be a bit chunky.

Hell, I think a broken down 80s Honda Jazz scooter would be more valid at this point. But whatever.
Yeah. It seems overly ambitious to me. But who knows?While I like driving, honestly I would trade it for a more chilled out non-driving activity any day of the week. My biggest problem is I get car sick if I try and do things while someone else is driving (and having been a management consultant, working on spreadsheets in the back of a Lincoln Town Car is my idea of hell).Anyway, I will see how the first year LCs look and then decide whether to do it. I don't mind the...
