    Is it me or do y'all also feel the need to avoid the most direct route home? Granted it's still new to me, I can't help but take my time getting home.....even after being dog tired after working all these 12 hour nights. The power is RIGHT THERE whenever and where ever you want it, the ride is smooth (10 times better than I expected) and the sounds.....OH the sounds this car makes!! I have always felt this way when riding my sportbikes, but never thought I'd feel this way about a "cage". I've always driven pick-ups and took care of my need for speed with my bikes. Let's just say I am extremely pleased with my purchase...and the long wait has all been erased from my memory. Anyway...just thought I'd share. Y'all have a great day!

    It was the first word that I thought of, but the very first thing that popped into my head was this song:



    And now this song will be stuck in my head all day. LeSigh. Don't mind me, though, I do this all the time. A recurring theme with me.

    Peace and tranquility follows us when we drive our cars. I always take the long way or kinda go out of my way when going somewhere. Seat time and family time with your kids is priceless to me.

    Great thread idea

    Although our cars cost a ton of money, who could put a price on the sense of brother and sisterhood along with everything else that comes with owning these cars?

    It is worth much more to me than any car could ever cost

    You are much safer in the car than on the bikes as well. I know far to many guys who have gone down and died on those things, I like the "cage" as you call it. It is a nicely appointed cage by the way. Fit for a king. Or a queen for that matter.

    it's always just 2 or 3 miles to my destination. But it takes me 11 miles to get home. Whats wrong with that?

    I've been down once. My fault and I was the only one hurt. I've been very fortunate and had many close calls...even hitting a deer at about 50 (didn't put me down though:cool:) and had more than one friend die and witnessed many others go down hard...but I love to ride. It's hard to explain. I don't ride as much or as crazy as I used to. A riding buddy and I always talk about "how are we still alive" with the way we used to ride. Some skill...mostly LUCK! and a lot of the Big Guy upstairs looking out for us for some reason. Anyway...I have found a new hobby now and it looks like the bikes will be gathering dust for a while. ;)

    Sometime we need the time to cool off from s long day. Sometimes we need some time. Sometimes we drive our cars because we have become hellcat club supporters and we want to grow our community and family
