There really isn't much to say, I'm an almost 50 year old IT nerd that's been into cars and bikes since forever - my old man always had a collection of old, shit cars and I love the very ordinary machines.
My daily is a 2010 Octavia diesel wagon workhorse with ~140k on it, and the back up is an SV650. We also have a Yamaha 125 and a modern Kona electric for the Mrs.

Occasionally buy and play with old tat before getting bored and changing to something else to play with.

Lack of space prevents serious collecting of cars and likely divorce, but I do have space and an inkling for a couple of older bikes.

We like older bikes. I find they are best stored in the kitchen.

That's no lady.
As I suspected I was right about everything.
