Other motorsports hobbies?
I'm sure a bunch of y'all have some other pretty cool motorsport interests. What else do you enjoy other than motorcycles?
I always joke if it has an engine I love it. Pretty true...two wheels, four wheels, a hull, on road, off road....love it all.
Cars have always held a big part of my heart. Definitely love/hate though. I'm drawn to drifting because it allows you to be creative and aggressive. Amazing feeling getting to know how a car feels at the extremes. But cars areally so damn expensive to modify and a pain in the *** to fix hah. There's the hate part. My track GTO rarely gets used and is the most expensive money pit I own. It lives on the track or the garage. Sometimes on the street, but not after I bent the coilover at the last drift event.
Then there is offroading where you constantly break stuff. Just part of the game. I used to think side by sides were dumb until my fiancÚ bought one. Holy **** they are incredibly capable. We took it to the motocross track and I was impressed with the suspension's ability to soak up so much even at high speed. Fascinating. Minus getting stuck in mud, navigating trails also has it's own challenges.
A recent, within the last few years at least, and also fascinating endeavor has been stand up jet skis. Never felt so sore from just riding something for the first time. Started running buoys this year and almost thinking about racing. They are similar to riding a motorcycle, but you can be so much more aggressive. A high side can hurt you, but not like on a bike. Incredible workout for your mind and body. I'd love to try some wave riding too.
I often try to ask myself which motorsport I like more and it's hard to say. Along with motorcycles they all have their pros and cons.
