Aut cum scuto aut in scuto
I don't usually tie stuff around my neck.My first ride (61 Triumph Herald) at age 14 was a stick and most of my driving since than has been with a stick, all the way up to a 22 yard tractor dump. I firmly believe a stick forces the driver to be in tune with their vehicle. My wife doesn't drive a stick and when trying to teach her how she said it was very distracting. Funny how 2 people can live together for almost 4 decades with such differing views without killing each other. lol
That's probably only because she can't use a stick.
My driving the way I do with attitude- Is a running commentary of other drivers parentage with snarky remarks on their inability to drive correctly. Think lack of use of turn signals.
My rule of thumb is go fast enough to get that shit behind you.
I learned to drive in So. Cal. in the mid 60's. They hammered us with "Drive defensively!". I already knew the best defense is a good offense, so my driving style is described by Brian and HH. Works in Tennessee too.
My driving has been compared with that of a Boston cab driver. Not sure if that's good or bad.
Used to love my stick shift until a million out-of-staters efdup my Boise!Hundreds of clutching just to get to the light! Now I let an autotranny creep me along to ea light.........
My motto is "Drive like everybody else on the road is out to get you. Because in a way they are."It worked for me. In 12 years driving commercial vehicles I had no accidents and no moving violations.
