I was hit at traffic lights once too... although the other (drunk) driver was only going about 50km/h. Wrote off my car And the guy just got up and walked away.
Hehe my little Kia, well it's not little really, has more horsepower and torque than some cars with a bigger engine. It's all in the engineering. They can make smaller engines output more power now than they could before. But it's a weight balance to engine size. Eventually you can have the car weigh too much so it makes the efficent engine worthless and it will suck more gas than a bigger less efficient engine in the same vehicle.

In my state it costs more to register the vehicle based on the the states thinks your car to be worth. Tires can get very expensive, depends what you want though, I know how to shop for them, never paid more than $80 per tire even for my truck.

Other drivers drive me nuts. It's insane what a lot of people can get away with.

All these stories make me almost happy I have to rely on public transport and shanks' pony, if only for the wellbeing of my pocket! Deep down I desperately want an old Ford Mustang though...

Hehe I take the metro to work. But I'm so far out of the city I have to have a car. No transport runs outside of rushhour mon-fri here and definitely doesn't go to the store or the barn.

I love stock saddles, horns not so much lol. Uncomfy place to get whammed by a horn down there LOL. But stock saddles are like dressage saddles with superglue seats

I have my new stock saddle I have yet to ride in.

Actually I managed to rope off the path the arena and take Rosie up there yesterday, she went pretty well, I think I may even get on her in the next few days, with my new stock saddle

She's just been not so great on the ground in her stable lately..

Still not quite settled but she's eating and stuff, not pacing and neighing.

Hehe here stock and Aussie are interchangeable. I don't even know if it will fit yet lol. But for 125 I couldn't pass it up. I'm so excited. I needed a trail saddle with horn so I can bring ropes and stuff with.
