I rode in them, and understand them, but don't get the fascination for these specifically given the competition across the board.A friend of mine got his GT3 RS about two months ago, and a GT2 RS about 2 weeks ago. Suffice it to say if you rode in one of them you might understand the fascination. And while I agree the 911s through the mid 1990s has the most 'soul', a well set-up 997 or 991 can tear up the track in a way the earlier cars cannot dream of doing. On the street though those models do little to elicit the feelings the older versions drum up with ease.
Can't argue with the ride quality of sew-ups. And back in the day, they were the only option for speed and distance.... nothing like riding on tubulars....
Thanks Brian, really appreciate that. Knowing and treating those hobbies like addictions helps a bit, hearing the loved ones laugh helps tremendously. Makes it all worth it, every morning.Kristoffer ... I want to compliment and congratulate you on the maturity of your decisions. I too and most guys have enjoyed the ragged edge of experience in younger years. In my case it was scuba diving and motorcycles. Most of us reluctantly and somewhat sadly step away from these activities when our world is expanded by a family. The loss associated with stepping away from these adrenaline inducing but dangerous activities never leaves us ... BUT ... pales into insignificance to the pain we would visit on our families we the possible to happen. Good for you K ... you’re a good man.
You guys took a very interesting turn with this thread.. I'm 25 and I already feel time is flying by.
Haha no it's okay I only said that because now I'm feeling it too. I collect mechanical watches as well, nothing expensive but still,headphones are my other hobby, not that uni leaves me with enough cash for eitherSorry for de-railing the thread. Back on track!
I collected mechanical watches for a while. Nothing too fancy, but still expensive enough to get me a River jump or two.
Overall I think travelling has probably been the most expensive “hobby” though. It’s fantastic the things you have time to see when you have Swedish 5-6 weeks of vacation a year Interestingly enough, Japan was at the top of the “go back to” list, even before the rabbit hole. Nature, food, people, history, culture, they really have something of everything.
I miss racing motorcycles, but trying to start a family hasn't been cheap or easy. Reading this already helps confirm what I assumed though and makes it a little easier to miss them, ha.I used to skydive.
Now I have a family and the risk/reward ratio no longer makes sense. Don’t think I could ever step off of something again, knowing there’s a very real risk of it being the last thing I do. The longing is still there, but so is waking up everyday to being a father and a husband to three wonderful loved ones.
