Blog Stuff: My practicality deficiency...

Many folks who love sportscars have a little roadster for sunny weather and weekends, and a truck or SUV to haul stuff or to drive when it's icky outside.

I have a motorcycle for sunny weather and weekends, and a two-seat roadster to haul stuff or to drive when it's icky outside.

Either I have some pretty lax "haul stuff" requirements, or I was born without a Practicality Gene...

Sometimes you have to "light out for the Territory ahead of the rest." You don't need to haul much at those times.

The meaning of "practicality" shifted after I married and had children. There is far more stuff to tote: groceries, school back packs, band instruments, gym bags, etc. Then we have more dogs now. They ride along between the kids. The kids and the dogs got to fighting, so we got an even larger vehicle.

I tried to make it the best of both worlds with as small a truck as possible, with the intention of doing a little tweaking for handling... What I can do remains to be seen.

But, right now I can haul 1000/tow 2500 pounds no problem and still get 27mpg :)

All I can haul is ass. ;)

The benefits of marraige. I get the motorcycle. I also get the truck to haul said motorcycle (a Triumph) around in when it inevitably fails to function. The wife gets the sports car. It all works out.
