Traded the RT for an R. I don't drive as fast on the R....you hit 100 mph without a windshield and you KNOW you're going 100.

Yeah, the 100mph only happens on rural highways and only when there is no traffic.

I pretty much assume no one can see me when I'm in traffic, approaching intersections, etc. But most of the time I spend cruising country back roads taking in the scenery.

Be careful mate, at those speeds small furry animals or hoofed animals crossing the road can be deadly.

Had an MG Midget in college and got hooked. Since then, I went to a Fiat Spyder, an Alpha Romeo Quadrafoglio, a Boxster and now a Z4. For some reason, I’ve always had the most fun in that crummy MG. Thinking hard about getting a ‘52 MG TD. Yep... total death trap, wooden frame, steering column that’s designed to impale the driver, tin foil doors, lucky if it makes 50 mph or stops within 100 feet. You can actually hand crank it. Might keep the Z though. Can’t afford maintenance on a Boxster S.... yet!

Very nice.

I've had an RT and an R- struggled a bit with legroom on both of them.
I've just bought my second GS Adventure- perfect bike for me- it arrived in a couple of weeks.

I LOVE the GS series, but I'm only 5'6". I can actually ride the GS no problem, but it doesn't look cool with me on my tip toes when coming to a stop. The new 1250 power train is SWEET....R1250GS is a hack of a bike, and something I may get down the road if I can find time for some actual adventure.

I sometimes miss the RT, as I used to cover some distance, but these days I just don't have the time. Such a different beast than a naked cruiser. Much more refined. Almost car-like. I would often find myself hitting 100+ mph without even realizing....you don't even have to crouch.

It was made before they invented 'Play' buttons. Back in the old days, we used to just scream insults at these things until they worked.

Now that our son is in college, I no longer need a back seat, so I traded my old BMW on something newer.

Long time lurker, second time poster. Here's my 1999 Jaguar Vanden Plas. And no, me and my mechanic aren't BFFs that hang out regularly. We're pretty close though. Also pictured, the back end of my old Benz C-class.

2009 Dodge Challenger R/T with modifications & Dyno Tune running 425HP. My mid-life crisis car,lol... wish I would have kept a handful of the muscle cars I had during the 70's,... they would have topped up my retirement contributions nicely.

OK, thought I would add a buddy's Dodge Challenger Demon SRT to the mix. I met SRTHayes at a car meet years ago. He bought the Dodge Demon in 2018,... only one for 300 made for the Canadian market and 3,000 were made for the USA market. The cars are manufactured at the Chrysler Brampton Assembly Plant, a couple hours from where I live.

The Demon has 840HP and 770 lb.ft. of torque and is certified as the fastest production car by acceleration ever manufactured in the world. Top certified NHRA 1/4 mile time of 9.65sec @ 140mph. It has double the horsepower of my Dodge Challenger R/T.

I went down the 1/4 mile track in this car at the Grand Bend Motorplex event held by Dave Hayes and some of his Demon friends. This thing is an absolute beast and will set you back in the seat bug-eyed & grinning ear to ear,

Just for kicks I lined up with a Demon at the Sparta rate track annual Mopar event and as expected it was a total embarrassment, lol, I watched the ass end of that Demon fade away for the full 9.8 seconds it took to cross the line,... I made it to the finish in 13.15,

Check out SRTHayes at the Grand Bend Motorplex event where he takes folks down the track for $50.00 a pop,... well, somebody has to pay for the fuel and maintenance,lol.
