  • First ride!





    Took Kai for his first ride down the driveway. He can't talk, but can sure scream. He made me take him 3 more times and then we had to pry him away from the car LOL



    Sean, what's the booster seat you had in your car?

    The funny thing is my wife goes " What is that car a Morgan ? " and I said "No that's a Caterham but there is a Morgan driving it " -delise

    .
    So cool!

    It is a Volvo booster seat. They pop up on Craigslist from time to time, or can be found through some Volvo dealers . Be careful with the dealers, as they sometimes advertise the "booster" alone without including the similarly priced "booster backrest", so their actual price for the whole thing ends up being double.

        No, I don't. I got lucky (after looking for 6 months) and found mine on CL for twenty five bucks out of Tiburon. Marin county has gotta have almost as many Volvos as Sweden.

          New seats goes for $200. I am on CL regularly looking for used ones.

          Sean:

          Total number of cars in Sweden: 4,401,352 (2012)
          Breakdown of top registration based on brand:
          Volvo: 1 000 633
          Volkswagen: 458 873
          Saab: 323 046
          Toyota: 286 683
          Ford: 270 414
          Audi: 218 517
          Renault: 179 306
          Opel: 170 692
          Peugeot: 166 033
          BMW: 162 702


          23% of the cars on Swedish roads are Volvos. Nobody, and I mean nobody, beats Sweden when it comes to Volvo fetishism.

              I'll take that challenge.
              Counting the vehicles in our driveway (i.e. not including those in the garage), we are at 66.67% Volvos at our house!

                  Just a quick question, Morgan.

                  How much money have you spent on bikes during the last 24 months?

                    He's got it bad Magnus. It's no different than upgradeitis.

                      You know better than that Magnus, one should never add up how much they spent on toys


                      All I know is that when I die, I hope my wife doesn't sell them for how much I told her I paid for them

                          I look at all of the lotions and potions and notions in the shower, in the medicine cabinet, under the vanity... most women have dozens of containers of this stuff in various places around the house - usually in the bathroom.

                          On the rare occasions I have found myself in a department store cosmetics section or a place like Bed, Bath, & Beyond, I have always been astounded by the disproportionately big price tags on those tiny bottles of stuff.
                          So I do the math, factoring in the estimated life span of those little containers that are used daily, and derive a rough estimate of monthly or annual expenditure on these types of things. Gee, suddenly that mapping session or Raceco silencer or carbon fiber bicycle frame (all of which last considerably longer than a 1.5 ounce bottle of "daily finishing scrub" or whatever, at God-knows-how-much per bottle!) or whatever upgrade-itis treatment doesn't seem so expensive after all.

                              That's odd. She said the same thing about all the jugs of dangerous, volatile organic compounds out in the garage.

                              It's all for a good cause my friend, all for a good cause.
