    Naskart is a sport. Really works out the left hand which is often unused by 90% of the population.

    Ha ha, I could see how one could think that. Living in flat old Iowa certainly helped shaped my cycling preference...

    Do you have to be any good at it in order to be a hobby? If not then I can name a few.

    Other than cycling I like to:

    * Ride motorcycles
    * Draw / paint
    * Play the banjo / Guitar (poorly)
    * Diet vigorously whenever I feel like losing weight... not sure if a hobby but it's brutal.
    * Competitive sleeping, assuring quality and quantity of sleep are optimal for my daily energy expenditures!
    * Have a few LPs laying around
    * Starting to run
    * Collect beatles memorabilia (cheap ones)
    * Collect James bond movies & watch them
    * Watch World War 2 documentaries
    * Play Call of Duty and Forza Motorsports
    * In the beginning stages of becoming a cigar aficionado

    I think that covers about it... Only ones I can consider myself decent at are motorbikes, drawing and Videogames. Other than that the others are minor.

    Not too much of an interesting guy I guess.

    What someone does, isn't what makes them interesting. Who they are, does.

    I'm in to photography, rock climbing (indoor at the moment), basketball (winter sport only), softball, clay target shooting and *******s, golf, automotive detailing and as of recently, running. I like to stay busy and with this list, it's not hard to do...

    Quite an interesting argument from your part huh. Well maybe a list of the things I do won't do the trick but how about a photo.. Can you tell me if I seem like an interesting man?

    Oh that? Well the guy is himself a motorcyclist, I guess because of that I would let that comment go, not think twice about it, I thought it was somewhat self-deprecating. Just noodling around on your motorcycle is maybe not a sport but racing is certainly physical enough to be a sport. Indeed it is in the category of motorsports, is it not? Fishing & cigars, they are maybe more hobbies but this thread is about sports/hobbies, after all. Who cares about one possibly snarky comment?

    Lol on dieting as a hobby. When I saw you post to this thread, I wondered if you were going to say "dieting".

    I'd say drop the cigar aspirations, though. Not good for your cycling. Why work so hard everywhere else and then take up cigar smoking?

    It's easy to get obsessed about the diet thing! It becomes a complete lifestyle rather than a hobby. ... if anything now I am chubbying it up!

    On the cigar. All extremes are bad, and being TOO healthy is one of them . I think I am allowed one sin every now and then. If anything, I can't probably afford a cigar every day so maybe once a week won't kill me. I do agree they are kinda contradictory, lets just say they cancel each other.

    Just don't sin with cigars, bad for your lung capacity. Sin with good wine or too much alone time with your fiancee- both of which can actually be construed as good for your heart. But cigars? That just seem counterproductive to me. But really none of my business.

    I thought you weren't supposed to inhale cigars so if you were smoking them occasionally outside I can't see how it would really affect your lungs any... I wouldn't smoke them anyway though.

    Well that shows what I know. Just seems like a nasty, unattractive habit to me. I could understand if one were hooked already, but to take it up intentionally is beyond me, especially when there are so much better sins to be had out there. And especially for a guy like Luis who seems intent on doing everything else right.

    The cigars are a head-scratcher to me in this case, I will admit.

    Oh, I agree it seems out of place. I was at the LBS last week and as I was talking to the sales guy I noticed the other sales guy (and ride leader) coming in and finishing up a cigarette. Blew my mind that a guy who competes in triathlons (I know tri-guy ) would smoke.

    Wait, was I just judgey? Sorry Luis, my bad. Enjoy your cigar if no other sins appeal more. Just do me a favor & dont start chewing tobacco.

    Yeah, looks pretty stock to my untrained eyes.

    Internally it's still stock (I have a cold air intake, tune and catbacks that eventually will go on), externally it's about as far as I want to take it, save for the possibility of Saleen PJ Heritage rims.

    The "mods" are:
    Classic Design Concepts Classic chin spoiler
    Saleen/Parnelli Jones Heritage rear wing
    Tinted fog and taillights
    Nitto NT-555r tires (255 50R17 rear, 235 45R 17 front)

    This car does qualify for the local shows as it is a muscle car (it is a GT)

    I probably would not have entered shows had it not been for this piece they allowed a couple of years ago:

    As far as cigars go, whatever floats your boat; however, don't kid yourself. There are still more risks from smoking 'em than not smoking 'em. Things like tongue and mouth cancer, and perhaps you've heard about second-hand smoke - which also applies to cigars and pipes. Will one cigar per week cause any serious problems? I don't know. Will not smoking one cigar a week prevent serious problems? Again, I don't know. I can say you increase your cancer risk with every cigar (or cigarette or pipe) you smoke. Of course, just by being born you already upped your odds of dying by 100%. Riding a bike in the sun? There's a big increase in cancer risk. Living in a big city, or at altitude, or . . . Well, you get the picture. Nothing we do is entirely without risk, and you got to have fun.

    Sorry, if this came off as preachy - it wasn't meant to be.
