Cruising for no reason.

How many of you go out cruising for absolutely no other reason, then just driving around?

I find myself almost every night going out for about an hour, it's costing me so much in gas... but I can't control myself. It's a severe addiction

I wish I had that much free time. I prefer the bike (motorcycle) though!

I cruise when I'm in a bad mood. I just put the top down, crank the tunes, and head somewhere...anywhere. Not ever night though

I do agree, I take the Yamaha r6 out quite a lot too.

What kind of bike do you have?

I used to love doing it, but just like the others, the price of gas is killing me.

Just so you all know, If I think you're an ******* I will gladly tell you. I'm not your everyday girl, so don't expect me to act like one. And yeah, I do like it topless and dirty!

Quoted Jetscuh: "I really have to force myself to eat nuts. There are other forms of protein as well, but it can be hard making sure you get enough at times."

You must be a teenager.
Us older folks would rather stay home, get hammered, and rewrite the Kamasutra with the old lady.

I only have 3 months left of being a teenager, so I'm taking advantage of it. Before you know it, I'll be one of those old geezers who rewrites Kamasutra

I do that a lot, just pick a road and start driving. Sometimes the girlfriend and I will leave on Friday night with no particular destination and stay gone until Sunday evening. If money were not an issue, I'd probably be one of those people with an RV who just travel the continent.

I did - until gas went over about $3.25/gallon. Now I only drive when I have somewhere specific to go.

I do it quite a bit, just to explore the area around me, see if there is any trouble to be gotten in to off-road wise, and pretty much just to spend time in the Jeep. I find myself cruising in to the car wash at 3 or 4 am, just to give her a touch up washing, without a speck of dirt anywhere to be found.

It is quite addicting, even though they drive like bricks, you can't beat the way it feels behind the wheel.

The wife and I lose the top and drive around quite often. I just can't figure out how to get her to lose her top.....
