Lee, The Driving Guy (TDG) here. I’m a self-proclaimed car and motorcycle junkie who was born and has lived his entire life in Southern California. I have decades of experience driving and riding in many different types of road, weather, and traffic conditions. Living in what is arguably the most car-based culture in the United States, perhaps the world, has deeply ingrained all aspects of motoring into my being.
I am presently in search of my passion, that is, figuring out what I want to be when I grow up.
I do know that I want to be working with cars and motorcycles in some capacity so, while I’m on my path to discovery, I thought I’d write stuff about cars and motorcycles that I do know. I’ve been driving for 30+ years, riding motorcycles for 40+ years, and have eclipsed 1,000,000 road miles.
I am bursting with observations and opinions about general driving skills and styles. Universally, everyone believes they are the best driver on the road. In that context, and as aptly put by the late comedian George Carlin, it means that all you other drivers are either idiots (drive slower than I do) or maniacs (drive faster than I do). Which are you?
- Continue learning as much as possible about people, cars, and motorcycles
- Enjoy therapeutic benefit of writing about motoring related stress and frustration
- Educate road users and, darn it, help make the world a better place
- Retain a positive orientation, provide useful information and entertainment
- Create an environment where others can share their motoring experiences
- Obtain a job offer for on camera host of Top Gear (either country is fine)
- Driving Skills & Habits
- Buying & Selling
- Dedicated Male/Female Page
This is the start of a journey during which I expect to experience great personal growth while providing a benefit to those who invest their time consuming my scribblings. It is also my first foray into blogging and public writing. As such, I’m hopeful my writing skills, along with the content, format, layout, and graphical presentation of this site, will continually improve with experience gained. Your feedback is crucial to this process.
I thank you for reading this far and look forward to your participation in my journey….
