    Welcome to the forum. I don't dislike cars. I just try to drive only when necessary. Cheers

    Hello jawnn, welcome to MBc.

    Welcome aboard.

    We think sorta alike, with some differences. I think of myself as being in "advanced youth". Love bicycles. And I actually do like most cars, but I hate the numbers of them and driving in traffic. It's way too much like standing in line.

    but the whole bicycle/MB scene is a great getaway.

    You'll like it here.

    See you around
