The first shot of adrenaline

Thanks Java for getting this going .

One of my joys of driving the S is that first shot of adrenaline. Maybe it is just me but after that first set of nice twisties that you "enjoy" there is that rush of adrenaline that is somewhat hard to explain. It kind of washes over you once you are through and take a breath. I always love that feeling and while I always enjoy the rest of the drive it just isn't the same as that.

Got to agree with you there. Also, when you crack the vtec for the first time. I was smiling ear to ear!

Razor sharp reflexes and a high strung 4 banger make for an exciting commute. Its better than coffee thats for sure.

My CR came at the end of a string of factory prepared sportbikes, so the thrill wasn't as devine for me.

However, the day after I picked it up I was waiting at a red light in San Francisco. Crossing the crosswalk was a mother and her son who looked to be around eight. He stopped, looked at my bright yellow CR, bugged his eyes, and as his annoyed mother dragged him away yelled the word AWESOOOOOOME!

I immediately threw him a thumbs-up and yelled; "Keep the dream alive, man". It was the single coolest experience I've ever had with any car, motorcycle, boat, or bicycle.

Sadly, my wife is the one who primarily gets compliments, people staring at her, random people trying to talk to her in traffic, etc. Some random girl(prob 16ish) did yell "I LIKE YOUR CAR" to me from the side of the road last week. I waved politely and it definitely made my day.

If I get my second press call before lunch I am gonna take the S out for a shot of adrenaline out near the Air Force Base for sure.

Classic happened today....

I pull into the Auto Parts Store today to get a set or brake pads for the Mrs. car. As I pull in there are Boy Scouts out front selling popcorn. I hear one of them say "Ooooo, there is a guy in a Porsche". I quickly here a reply "NOOOO that's a Honda S2000". I walk up and they ask if I would like to buy any popcorn and I say "no thanks" and then ask for the one that knew it was an S2000 and gave him $5 .

Lately, Although I shouldn't, I found a new way to have fun. Driving in the rain with your rear tires with almost no grip! =))

Haha of course i dont recommend this in any way, but once you take your driving to the next level you will try to drift, but make sure you do it somewhere safe where the streets are empty and wide! and of course no cops hahahaha (Dont over due it haha)

Man... people are going to flame me for doing "illegal **** in the streets", but really you know everyone here do it once in a while!!!

I have to get new rear tires...

"It is the middle ground between light and shadow, between science and superstition, and it lies between the pit of man's fears and the summit of his knowledge."

Pappy alwayz use'ta say: "Anybody can drive in'a dry."

(I've found that many go to great lengthz'da try'n prove this statement wrong.)
