    My kids are in their 20's, I still drive them everywhere and don't forget I still have my wife to drive around.

    All Canadians do. If you live near Toronto, you must drive at least two hours go to work and back home plus you need to drive for your daily routine. If you are not living in the big cities, you must drive to survive cause everything is so far apart.

    I also like running. I do about 20km total in a week, but that's going WAY down after it started snowing. Probably going to hit up the treadmills in the gym.

    Yep, driving is definitely on my list. I bought my first PS3 solely in anticipation for the GT5 release.

    We were very close to getting a 335i but decided to go for it's smaller brother in the end. Great engine, looking to add a BMW performance exhaust soon.

    Post some pics of your 335 would love to see it!

    MTB-ing was another hobbie of mine until I had a bit of an accident 3yrs ago and never got back on it since - partly as my son occupies most of my time now.

    Here's my bike - collecting dust now.

    Those 300hp are really hard to hold back and have almost gotten me into trouble a few times. But the fun is in the corners. It's alpine white. Added a short M shift knob, a modest front splitter, and smoked LED side and tail lights.

    PS3: Come to think of it, GT5 is my only game on it. But for the full experience, you should really try the Logitech G27 force feedback racing wheel.

    Mine's alpine white too - the best colour!

    Haven't tried GT5 with a steering wheel, but my games room has now become my son's play area and he doesn't like sharing! lol

    Haven't got any decent photos of my 135, but here's some off my phone.

    It's the later N55 engine - single twin scroll turbo. Thinking about a getting a Cobb AP and a few other bits (if my wife approves) - hopefully take me closer to my 400bhp dream!

    that's too bad R20190, you've got a nice ride there and plenty of nice trails to hit too from what I've read.
    I just ended up buying my son an FSR stumpy so he could ride with me. Here's my TB.
    all the best and def GREAT thread

    I coach youth football (soccer) ages 6-14, still help out with strength and conditioning coaches with weightlifters and rugby players. I still occasionally do some powerlifting training, I'm still 80% as strong as I was as a lifter myself and I run at least 20km a week.

    yeah boys and their toys. Otherwise we would never make it. That's pretty old school definitely. Oddly enough I was never able to part with my first MTB, Fisher Montare from '86, all original XT components. Amazing how far parts have come when I look at it. I keep it on the trainer for the off season.

    @R20190
    Nice ride.
    Before you boost to 400hp, don't forget to put in a limited slip diff.

    The past-times listed so far can be broken into a couple categories:
    Fancy cars and golf - expensive.
    Other sports and fitness - makes sense on a sports forum.

    But only a few mentioned music or the arts.

    Surely, there must be a few more musicians, artists or authours out there! Or even a professional clown (Heaven knows we have a few amateurs here, already ).

    I'll have you know that I tickle the ivories every now and then, and enjoy relaxing to music.
