Besides working full time, I have a two avocations: writing and music.

I've had a couple of books published, and I'm working on two more. But music is my deepest love. I played in my first band when I was 12, I've been lucky enough to play professionally, both as a hired studio gun and in a traveling band. I currently play in a local blues band with three very outstanding musicians.

Pretty much just BMWs/driving...


I used to be big into biking (no tourings or anything)... Also did some time in car audio, like big.


Also USED to be a big sports player. Like ball every day, football weekends, soccer every now and then... Thennnn some friends moved, and I bought the e36 which turned me into the laziest mofo you can imagine

[QUOTE]

it took me a loooong time to get used to it. i dont even use hand brakes anymore (notice the lack of them in the pic). it's really all about trying to create as little resistance as possible when trying to go fast, and as MUCH RESISTANCE as possible when trying to stop....toe clips are a must. you just have to learn the balance between applying pressure and still letting the wheels turn.

i suppose you don't really get it until you hop on one of them. but i live in an extremely flat town with basically one road so it was made for fixed gears. it's my transportation 90% of the time in the spring/summer.

oh ya, most important part of riding a fixie is to think about 6-10 seconds ahead of where you are.....nothing worse then getting leveld by someone opening a car door

You checked right.... But my laziness kicked in ever since I bought the e36 3 years ago lol

The e30 just amplified the laziness

Mein Auto: 328i, Nuclear Hedonbeast
I also love cute European girls and my E39 540i 6 speed, plus traveling, creative writing (fiction), music and eating unnecessarily hedonistic food like a bloody maniac. I also worship front-engined Porsches and am saving for my next one (968). To me, the Porsche 968 Club Sport is not just a great idea- it's religion.

Unfortunately I'm stuck focusing on my boring Finance job for seemingly 99% of the time though. Life's too short

haha! although i dont have 2 jobs nor go to school, I have a full time job that makes me work way more that 40 hrs a week and a gf. i find it surpring myself i have time for other things. i guess that justifies adjusting headlights at 10pm in 40deg weather or half washing my car in the rain.

we gotta do what we gotta do...lol

Mein Auto: '96 toyota LC2
im doing a bare shell rebuild on a '66 fiat 850 coupe, im not doing the welding, as i want the thing to drive straight and stay together over a bump ! but i have done all the engine suspension etc, its going to be almost stock, except for a slightly lower front end and a nice set of cromodora rims.

im also doing a rolling abarth conversion on a '68 fiat 600D, its already lowered, fitted with a slightly tuned 903cc motor and running 5 1/2 j cromdora rims... it looks cute with the engine lid propped open like the abrth racers of the 1960's..

apart from that im also renovating a house here in malaysia, built new, but abandoned for 10 years.......oh yea, when i get the time i go riding on the VN, sometimes road trips to thailand or just around malaysia

i also drink a LOT of beer :-)
