Lets not forget those crazy cyclists and all their carbon fiber, electronic shifting nonsense .Gear is gear. Easy overlap between cars, planes, boats, and watches. All take money as well of course.
I'm certain every city is the same but there's something so disheartening about driving into Boston on the Tobin bridge for me when I see that the last 3 miles to my destination is going to take me 45+ minutes. Thankfully I try to schedule meetings off peak hours but it's just as bad coming home. There's no avoiding the Rte 1 stop and go. Must be just as bad heading south. I'd hate to do it in a manual.I love a manual in a sports car and I daily drove one for over a decade when I was younger. However, towards the end of my daily driving that car there was so much traffic in my daily commute, that the last 10 miles of my commute could take an hour and it was all stop and go. So any automatic became more practical for daily driving, and a manual just for weekends. Still there is nothing like rowing your own gears on nice winding back roads!
