    No...that's not sadder...
    At least you were driving the damn thing.

    I used to take my Integra Type-R out in the silly hours when swinging off nightshift, just to hear the VTEC noise...I'd often do 200 miles and empty the tank...just because.

    Now, staring at tyres is just wrong...unless you are admiring how you've just shredded them, or how much of the lettering you've managed to buff off the sidewall with 'commited' cornering!
    Then, it's perfectly accepted...and indeed normal.

    Yeah the tyre thing is a little disturbing lol.

    Driving in the early hours is grrrrreat, not much other traffic so safer to 'experiment'

    i think thats worse than staring at the tyres.......just kiddin

    no harm in driving at night and admiring the car and how it performs etc, in my opinion you can only enjoy driving at night.... when your not stuck behind some asswipe doing 16mph in a 40 on sunday afternoon...

    I'm lucky that in 30-45 mins or so I can be in the Cairngorm National Park where Gods own roads can be found.
    No traffic, billiard table smooth...get there at 3-4am in summer and watch the sunrise as you clip apex after apex...superb!

    I used to do the same on the bike too!

    Two of my mates used to drive Taxis...once the drunks had gone home and they'd finished work, we'd get the leathers on and head inland...superb!

    It's a great feeling isn't it?
    Empty roads...and the sun rising. Ace!
    Cars and bikes always sound a bit fresher and go a bit better in the colder, denser early morning air too.

    I agree i work 12 hour shifts and when I finish at 6 in the morning I love giving it some stick round the corners, roundabouts etc..

    I also agree with the clocks thing they look really cool but I wouldn't advise starting at them whilst your driving.

    I turned a five minute drive home from my parents' house into an hour and a half's countryside hooning the other week. Going for a drive "just because" is ace.
