    Adding a 650S is what I'm considering. Going to test out a Huracan today.

    Ahh, time to roll big I see. Keep in mind that the McLarens are great but don't hold their value as well as the Huracan and the 488. The 488 is the king of this price bracket when it comes to holding value, and that biturbo V8 is really well liked. The Huracan is a monster though, and it's rather inexpensive to bump the power up to the 900 range and create a wonderful final resting place for yourself ;)

    It's interesting though that the Huracan is the most produced Lamborghini because of how well it's selling. May really hurt resale down the road, who knows.

    488 is way out of budget. 458 is a slug compared to these two. It's coming down to 650S vs. Huracan. Wife likes the Huracan more, I like the 650S more after driving the two in short. The 650S prices have come down and are on the further end of the depreciation curve.

    Ahh. I think the 458 is ugly anyway. The 650S is definitely the best looking out of the two, I would personally go with that

    I've been living in Tokyo for the last year, The Saab and Panda have been in storage in the UK, so this has been the weapon of choice.

    Awesome. Someone who lives here has a black one that I've seen a few times. He isn't shy with that accelerator pedal, that's for sure. That V10 sounds great.

    Funny how you were considering completely different cars last month :)

    I was testing them all out...

    This, McLaren 570S, 650S, and Lamborghini Huracan. Long story short this is a more luxurious Huracan for less cash and better ride quality. If we want a rough ride we take out the GT-R. The McLaren we did not like the 570S but I really did enjoy the 650S. At the end of the day we didn't want a risky purchase. The McLaren reliability in some cases was questionable at best. In addition, the resale market is in total disarray with them and didn't want to be out a lot of cash with a potential unreliable car.

    Drove the R8 and heard the exhaust note it was everything of the Huracan without it's negatives for us. If you go to a car meet or drive around everyone with exotics has either a Ferrari or the Lamborghini. This is a bit less seen in our area. The rest is history. :)

    Just want to put something out there for everyone.

    Be mindful of motorcycles.

    Be mindful of bikes.

    Be mindful of cars.

    Be mindful of trucks.

    Be mindful of public safety.

    Just be mindful of everyone on the road.

    I've seen good and bad operators in all these categories. I've seen accidents caused by all of these categories as well.

    We lost a good friend yesterday in Toledo, he was on his motorcycle and a drunk guy in a truck turned in front of him and he couldn't stop in time.

    Don't drive drunk, don't drive exhausted, pay attention to others on the road, do not drive offensively, just share the road with everyone else like you're suppose to.

    As much as I agree, I tend to lean the other way. There will always be people who are terrible drivers and make disgustingly bad decisions. Every time you ride a motorcycle, you put yourself at risk to run into one of these people. It's just how it is. You don't have any protection on a bike. I personally always drive to the highest standards, but I know most people don't.

    Rest in peace to your friend, and ride safe my friend.

    Yeah I mean that being said, definitely of course be on the look out for motorcycles. We risk going out on a motorcycle every time we ride. This is why I tell other folks I ride with, even when they make fun of me wearing all my gear(Jacket, armor, gloves, helmet, padded pants, canvas shoes) in say near 100 degree heat yeah it gets pretty procreating hot lmao. But can't put a price on your protection. Plus when I'm going my gear has pretty good airflow. And I try not to speed on the main roads or busy intersections or when it's rush hour on the highway, but we get our bikes up there sometimes out in the boonies lol.

    The kid that just died on Laskey is my buddy I was talking about.

    For sure, I'm always watching out for them. I don't blame you for always wearing your full gear, it can turn a potential trip to the ER into a situation where you walk away. And I did hear about him, really sad. I think I was out on the road when it happened.
