    Ya. If you're 90.

    Nothing beats the rush of punching your car to the next level as you maneuver around another car. Bonus points if you are blasting a deadly beat from your speakers.

    Cars are overrated. Period. They are only fun if you've never ridden a motorcycle.

    I think you might have misunderstood his point: having a car that you're able to push to its limits, and doing so, is cool. Queuing for the mall in one you don't really know how to use, is rather lame.

    Cars, even crap cars (sometimes especially crap cars), can be fun to drive. So can bikes. And horses.

    I am not going to buy a horse. I will probably have a new car soon. I am trying not to listen to the bike voices for now. It's been nine years since my GSXR was stolen...and I've never touched another [​IMG]

    I've gone about 60-65 on a bicycle.

    That was fucking fun as hell.

    Never rode, so cant say. But I have no compulsion to do so, either.

    Except most of those south shore guys take the ferry to work which isn't such a bad gig (except winter)

    Would you say most? I don't think it's that much. I'd say more do a combo of drive, commuter rail, and red line out of Braintree than take the ferry.

    I'd be driving around quite slowly in a Porsche 356 Speedster if I ... won the lottery and stuff

    Motorcycle is only fun until you get thrown off 60 yards. Let's hope it doesn't happen to anyone here.

    I was sitting in traffic some years ago and a car bumped into a bike at 5 mph and sent the motorcyclist into judo tumbling. His bike broke into some pieces but he survived without a scratch due to his judo tumbling technoque.
