Another motorcyclist here, pretty much agree with the other guys. I love riding, but I'm often having to go a bit below the limit, sometimes by a good 15-20mph. I know a limit isn't a target, but it's certainly a pain when you can go safely at the limit, and find yourself going 20mph under. A lot of the times you just wait for an overtake opportunity, and it’s fine – but you could be waiting for a while or won’t be able to overtake at all. When it matters the most, IMO on bendy A-roads, overtake opportunities might not show up, and that’s when it can get really annoying. Bendy NSL A-road at 60+ (60, perhaps briefly 61mph =]) is fun, but not when you’re stuck behind a car doing 40, or sometimes less – which is what most cars do on the NSL roads along my commute. Oh well, I still enjoy riding, don’t think’ I’d get bored of it any time soon.
I've been driving for two years and I still enjoy driving, although I don't get excited about it.
Obviously depends on the drive though. At home the roads are flat and fairly tedious. At uni they're all coastal and twisty-turny and although I have a pretty rubbish car, it is pretty fun.
It doesn't bother me.
I don't love it though.
When you come off the M25
I never get bored of driving, I'm excited everytime I get in my car. 2nd gear all the way up to 55 YEAHHHHHHH
It depends, if you're actually a petrolhead and enjoy driving, I'm not sure it does.
I've been driving 2 1/2 years, and done around 92,000 miles in the that time and I still enjoy it. Always get a buzz driving in an unfamiliar/difficult/hooning environment - Even though most of the time I'm more concerned with fuel consumption.
The reality is, that driving 150 miles down the A1 at 2am isn't going to be as exciting as hooning it around the Snake Pass on a summer's day. The other reality is that for most people, driving is something to utilised and/or tolerated. Not something to be enjoyed.
I think it also depends on the kind of car one has. If the car is driver's car (the one which drives very well, has great control, great power- like VW or Audi) , the person will never get bored of driving. But otherwise you might.
Your question has no single answer. I have been driving for around 9-10 years now. First car was a micra ( i never got the rush) untill i pulled handbrake hard and car spinned like a joke. Second car, e46 m3 and till this day i love and get the same rush around the corners. My audi a7 doesn't give me adrenaline rush such as my m3. So really it all narrows down to the car you're driving. For example: a 14 year old might feel like ferrari in a micra.
