    Re: What are the cars/bikes/cycles you drive?

    I'd love to have a Prius, but would have to go into debt to buy one, so the vehicle that I share with my better half is a used Chrysler mini-van. No, we don't have kids, he just wants a van to haul around his ever-expanding collection of bikes. I insisted on one we could pay cash for. Apart from the door locks, which seem to be possessed by demons, it runs beautifully.
    I've lost count of his bikes, but I now have four. A Sabatini track bike, which I'll probably sell, a screaming scarlet road bike made by a local frame builder from Reynolds 531 tubing some 20-odd years ago, a 23 year old BRC touring bike with 26" wheels, and a recently purchased Rocky Mountain Metropolis commuting bike, which has disc brakes and an internal 8-speed hub gear. If we have another 40 days and 40 nights of rain in June, as we did last year, I'm ready.

    Shank's mare here!

    40 days and 40 nights of rain doesn't seem uncommon, any more!

    I did lose a bike after a huge rainstorm. Road washed out. I was swimming across deeply flooded fields and trying to drag the bike with me.

    Then I got a Peugeot (bike) and felt very classy.

    Most of the time I drive a Honda Ridgeline. 2 days a week, weather permitting, I drive an Acura NSX.

    I drive a Saturn Astra with a bike rack for my old old Caloi road bike or new K2 mountain bike (depending on my mood).

    Cub Cadet 2146 riding lawnmower on weekends. With the rain we've had, I seem to be using it more often than ever!
