What else do you play with??

Just a question that came on on another forum I used to visit when I had my 2004 GTO. So I have had fast cars (99 Camaro SS, 04 POntiac GTO), fast boat (1998 Baja Boss 252 454 MPI) and now back on a bike again after 10 years of not having one. But what else do you guys do for fun? My latest obsession that actually started when I was 13 and now consumes alsmost all my spare time is hunting Whitetail deer. My wife and I were finally able to venture out and purchase our own piece of property and I have been super hooked on bow hunting since trying it 3 years ago and only three days into it I shot a 145" 10-pointer that weighed over 200 lbs! The Hawk doesn't even give me that kinda rush! What about you guys?

I am 57 years old and am firstly a very keen surfer.

Having started when I was 12 I still surf as often as I can.


In my quiver I have 14 boards that I use for different breaks and conditions, and these are regularly replaced as my shaper and I search for that elusive perfect all round board just like we do with the modifications that we do to our bikes.


Bikes offer an alternative for when the surf is bad.


I am also a very keen traveller and have seen many parts of the world, sometimes surfing, sometimes with bikes and sometimes just for fun.


Being selfish, and not taking family into account it would be


Surfing, Bikes , and travel.

I was about to post that as well hoping I didn't get beat to it

I play with toy cars. I race a mugen mbx6 and am about to swap to the new mbx7 m-spec purely because I'm a dealer and it looks bad me using old equipment, but the 6 turns in a little slower and since I suck I'm faster with it lol. Run reedy engines (though I'm fixing to swap to nova rossi) and protek servos, airtronics radio, and run bones brew fuel

I just got a trials bike, a 2011 Beta 300 4T. I'll never be good. I just want to get better.

9 ball any chance I get. I used to play 6hrs a day and make most my living at it. Model railroading (n scale). Mountain biking to have fun and stay in shape for roadracing motorcyles (not hawks).

Raced Bridgehampton, Loudon, Pocono, New Jersey and Daytona.

Jeepn'






I've been "into" car audio for years but don't really share much about my stuff for obvious reasons.

I play with hifi gear when I have the time. I've built a number of retro vacuum tube preamplifiers and hot-rodded a few solid-state amplifiers. I try to aim for a modern detailed sound that is still easy on the ears.

Yeah, I do home too. I have.. Harmon Kardon Citation 21 & 22 connected to Klipsch Chorus II's via Audioquest cabling. Source is an old Sansui turntable, 16bit Onkyo cd, Audiosource eq-10, and I added an Onkyo surround processor to get the home theater set up. Boston Acoustics surrounds.
RobertLever, do you have any cool vacuum tube pics to share?
