    Whats your hobby ?

    Other than computers

    My main hobby is old motorcycles. I really like riding a nice restored old bike, my latest hobby is a 1973 Norton Commando 850 Roadster I always wanted to ride a Norton through the streets of Europe, maybe some day.Norton pic

    I also like photography, collecting and repairing old Nikon cameras.

    Great, I need a wedding photographer for next year! Let's see, does bodybuilding qualify as a hobby? Been doing it for 18 years now.

    I like to read, fish, hunt, and camp. I am into shade tree auto repair. I played American football for 12 years, so I'd call it a hobby.

    I am into dirt track racing too. I've always wanted to drive a street stock, late model, or sprint car.

    In case you don't know:

    Late Model:

    Sprint Car:

    I've been a dirt track fan since I was four or five years old.

    Well outside of computers, i like a little motorsport. I was big on F1 but it's beginning to get a little 'slow' so I'm not watching as much as I used to. I still like to go to the big race when it comes to Melbourne. Unfortunately of late, I've been working (casually) at the Melbourne International Motor Show which is on around the same time as the Melbourne Grand Prix, so I've had to miss out

    The majority of my hobbies relate to the PC so there isn't much else to say...I tamper with my PC constantly and love to muck about with digital video (loving my new Digital HDTV Tuner card ).

    I frequent a gym, but am no where near as big as Conan I just want to keep fit! My weekends are spent out with my friends, mostly with my girl...but out to bars and clubs until all hours of the morning

    Then it's back to work on Monday

    Well It used to be video Games my main hobby, but I don't even have time for hobby anymore . I am always working in some computer project, trying to learn more and doing more advance stuff that I can . Outside computers I would say
    that is spend time with my girlfriend. Of course, that happens every 3 months
    I also watch Anime, but I am not Otaku, listen to music (I have music almost 24/7) and of course Sleep. I usually sleep at least 9 hours (to keep myself young )

    Lets see - outside of computers :

    - I like to drink beer. (don't know if it qualifies as a hobby)

    - Collect toys (new and old - massive collection -most packed away in crates, remember when you were young and said "When I have money I'm gonna buy all the toys in the world."... I havn't been able to move on from there, much to the dissapointment of my girlfriend, Dammit - I just can't help myself.)

    My pride and joy




    Also into

    - painting and drawing.
