More memory, faster CPU, whatever.

I stopped tinkering with my car because it got too bloody expensive. But I LOVE to tinker. And sometimes if I don't feel like riding (rare) I'll ride just to test out my latest tinkering. Tinker tinker tinker! I can't keep my hands off of things.

But now I have all my bikes the way I want them, and it's a bit of a strange feeling.
Oh man, you perfectly described me. I'm always modifying or dissasembling and reassembling things. There has to be a Tinkerers Anonymous.
