Drinking anisette (i'm french)
L'homme de la pampa, parfois rude, reste toujours courtois.
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.

Cat 6 going on PRO....
I'm in to photography, rock climbing (indoor at the moment), basketball (winter sport only), softball, clay target shooting and handguns, golf, automotive detailing and as of recently, running. I like to stay busy and with this list, it's not hard to do...

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.

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