I'm writing a book: a series of short stories around a serviceman/veteran who happens to ride a motorcycle.

Slayer, You can't go wrong with Sig Sauers and Dan Wessons!

Totally agree about the "addiction" aspect!  

Mike

Thanks Mike. It's really like any other hobby. Start small & keep at it until you find something else to put cash into.
Good quality guns do have a habit of retaining their value, however.
I might also add that when I was racing motorcycles we strongly believed that racing vintage motorcycles was the fastest wat to turn money into noise!
Don't be ridiculous! It's only a flesh wound!

Playing games is considered a hobby, am I right? I enjoy playing multiplayer games, it helps reducing stress that I get from work.

Gotta love a posh V-8! My previous DD was a supercharged Range Rover Sport: 510hp, 468lb-ft stock.

It sounded great and really moved out well for such a heavy vehicle (5600lb, IIRC). And oh, was it fun to drive...

Picked up another LBC. I've done the muscle car thing and find the little sports cars more fun to drive. My 1968 Triumph Spitfire. A true "barn find" stored and forgotten about since the mid 70's.

Rolled another Darrell Waltrip race car off my work area. This time its his 1989 Daytona 500 winning Tide With Bleach Monte Carlo!!!!
First time I used Photo Etched parts. The five point harness and the window net use those tiny P.E. parts. 
Its also the first car I did with the window net in the down position. Plumbed the motor with a few scale AN fittings and hose.
