    I used to enjoy so many things before I bought my MS.
    The GoldWing sits in garage not used because of you.
    I used to enjoy sitting at home reading....now anytime anything is needed at the store I can't help myself...I jump up and say "I'll go get it"

    My antisocial tendencies are being tested as people want to look at and talk about the car.
    I have to fight the urge too drag race every car at every stop light.
    I don't listen to music much in the car now as it is so quiet.

    I wonder how many more changes are occurring that I am missing.

    You don’t realize how much of an introvert you might be until you get something rare like a Tesla. I was in the same boat as some of your comments have displayed about not wanting to talk to people about the car, or the motorcycle just sitting in the garage (put 2K miles on my supersport bike in 1 year, put 300 on it since we got the first Tesla almost 18 months ago).

    Did you own a Volt before? Still have that as well?

    Yes the Volt is still in the family. My GF bought it from me.

    I thought I was the only one to look for excuses to go for a drive. I am even taking the fam to Gillette Stadium to watch NCAA men’s lacrosse final, just to stop at the 16 stall Manchester supercharger and grab a bite at Artisinal Burger. Damn you Tesla, but in a good way!

    I know it is a gold wing but it is still too wheels...

    The Tesla is good but you might need to go see the doctor and get a check up.

    Technically you could have three and that would explain it.

    I used to love the sound of a throaty V8 or a supercar V12 but now they disgust me. You also at some point realise how stupid an ICE vehicle is and why we ever invented them. Ridiculous.

    All I see now are boys with baseball cards stuck in their bicycle spokes.

    I always say that I take the Porsche, if I want to go slow... That usually gets the point across. Still won't get rid of the car, as it was my childhood dream.

    We have an FJR1300 and Concours 1400 sitting in the garage since we bought the MS. The fact that it has been raining for 15 days straight has nothing to do with the bikes being parked... lol
