Cool!

I also used to track my humble decades-old beemer. But cost of tires can be expensive too!

But as you know, very shiok man. Miss those track days.

Very good as an outlet for our need for speed. Let out the steam in the track in a safe way. Also learn how to recognize when we are approaching the limit of the car's performance envelope (tires about to slip, etc) and how to handle it.

Mr Big,

good to know a fellow aficionado.

You have good taste. I also quickly gravitated to Cohibas, unfortunately for my wallet.

It was cuban $, then cohibas $$, then cohiba maduro 5 $$$.... it quickly got out of hand cost-wise because once I've tasted the next level up, it's almost impossible to go back down,.

Which is why golf works for me. One round of golf is like the cost of a single good robusto.... and lasts much longer too! Laughing Laughing Laughing

I tried smoking cigars while golfing. But I find the two are a bit tricky to mix....

Totally Agree Lee36328~!

But ya gotta admit...
it does feel good to have a nice relaxing smoke & a good single malt from the low lands of Scotland, after a round & a bath.

Anyone else here into Music, Guitars and pedals ?

Wonder if other golfers face the same symptoms as musicians called G.A.S (Gear Acquisition Syndrome)?

When playing the electric guitar most would enter a phase where we change pickups, buy and sell lots of pedals, begin minor modifications to the guitars, pedals and amps.... all in search for that elusive tone we so desperately feel we need to have.

Quite addictive

Love music & modding electric guitar & bass effects.
Used to tie myself to a guitar shop to do mods....
but havent had the time to do it since the kid came along.




I bought an Ovation guitar.
Found that i got the time but no talent.
That's why not taking part in Talentime.

Now guitar is gathering dust, anyone keen to buy over?
It's a classical guitar.

Whiskey.... Yup, that's good stuff. You have fine taste. I have fine taste too... but don't have the money for it. No

So for me, I will just buy the cheap bourbon from the airport like Jacks or Jims then mod it. Idea

The latest experiment is soaking cut cubes of granny smith apples in bourbon for a minimum of six days. Then use a coffee sock to filter out the liquid gold from the apple cubes. It's suppose to make the whisky butter smoother. Don't know the results yet. It's just day 3. Will let the forummers know if it works.

The more I read the forum, the more I discover that fellow forummers are all sophisticated people.

No bro, although I got their albums, I'm more into Racer X (because of Paul Gilbert) than Mr Big. Lately the shows i caught are
- Judas Priest
- Dream Theatre
- Alice Cooper
- Iron Maiden
missed Avenged7Fold second time around cos my kakis not into new stuffs... haiz
so, that gives you a flavour of what I fancy. I already got tickets for Megadeth Twisted Evil

I'm hoping for Anthrax, The Cult, Disturbed
