Im mad about scooters, especially classic vespas and everything that goes with them - Ska music The Jam, Weller, Style Council the whole scene really after watching Quadrophenia as an impressionable youth which was a very errr long time ago now.
Love cycling and have just started going off road (intentionally) which is much more challenging and interesting than just riding along main roads.
The Gym in the Winter but not as often as I should, Cooking indian and chinese food and exploring the coast aroud Devon and recently South Wales on My Scoot.

I'm into aviation. Give me a flying machine and some fuel and I'm happy.

I visit airshows, fly-ins and gatherings whenever I can.

Also into military re-enactments, preferably WW2 and occasionally get dressed up in 1940's uniforms with my wife and go dancing to the tunes of the 40's.

Well into history and old buildings/castles/abbeys etc.

I also collect aviation art and make Airfix models.
Fly low, Fly fast.

I hate flying more than most things. I have to get drugged up before I go onboard any plane. I am then scared all the way listening to the engine's noises and my heart is in my throat every time the plane turns or changes height. I am truly pathetic! :slhi:

I change my passions quite often. At the moment its Judo that makes me happy. I go three times a week and at the moment I am sporting a black eye and a cut lip. I just love it even when I get hurt :slbx:

I am pretty new to the site as my application references are still being processed, plus I still have my medical and fitness to pass! But in my spare time I am a keen follower of Rugby Union (Sarries fan), Formula 1 and Snooker. I also enjoy cooking influenced by my overseas travelling through past jobs.

Hobbies? Well, with what little spare time the Mrs. allows me . . . reading (both fiction and non fiction : crime novels, history), music (rock, blues, classical) and cooking (as and when shifts allow).
I have seen the truth and it makes no sense.

I used to be mad keen on table top dungeons and dragons but I outgrew that years ago. I spend my time watching sci fi/gangster films or on my ps3. I like my motorbike and doing stuff with the kids.

I don't think I have any? :slwo:

I may get time one day when I retire and kids are moved out. At the moment I am a "provider" or a worker bee...

Rather than just a list of my hobbies, here's a quote from my C.V. ...


I am a dynamic figure, often seen scaling mountains and skiing couloirs. I have been known to remodel stabvests in my lunch breaks, making them more efficient in the area of heat dissipation. I translate staff requirements for the Chief Constable, I write award-winning articles for Police News, I manage time efficiently.

I woo women with my sensuous and godlike sincerity, I can pilot bicycles up severe inclines with unflagging speed, and I cook a boiled egg in 3 minutes. I am an expert in Black Adder, a veteran in love, and an outlaw in Peru.

I enjoy urban parachuting. I am the subject of numerous Press releases. On Wednesdays, after work, I repair oscillating fans free of charge. I never cheat at squash. I am a fearless canoeist. Under pressure, I rely on chirpy optimism, I never panic. Occasionally, I tread water for three days in a row.

I am an abstract creator, a generous tipper, and a ruthless gigolo. I once turned down an offer from London Zoo for my trouser snake, lounge lizard and tent rhino. Critics world-wide swoon over my original line of walking shorts. I can defecate and ski at the same time.

I don't perspire. I am a private citizen, yet I receive fan mail. Last summer I toured Barbados with a travelling libido. My eyebrows have earned me fame in international botany circles. Children trust me.

I can hurl tennis rackets at small moving objects with deadly accuracy.

I balance, I weave, I dodge, I frolic. I have exchanged groins, advised the UN, and won the Nobel Peace prize in 1994 for my amusing anecdote on uses of the unemployed. Years ago I discovered the meaning of life, but forgot to write it down.

I once read the Bible, Ullysses and the Koran in one day and still had time to complete an entire attic conversion that evening. I am a legendary Kart racer. I know the exact location of every food item in the kitchen. I have performed several covert operations for the SAS. I sleep once a week; when I do sleep, I sleep in a chair. The laws of physics do not apply to me.

I am the special person in my life. I am an unstable extrovert, a whisky connoisseur and the perfect son. While on holiday in Africa, I donated a kidney to save the life of a young Massai girl; then had sex with her.

I have made extraordinary four course chicken meals using only a candle and a toaster. I breed prize-winning clematis in my roof garden. I have won the Cresta run in St Moritz, tennis matches in Wimbledon, and friends worldwide. I have played Hamlet, I have performed open-heart surgery, I have survived Shuttlecock, and I have spoken with Elvis.

BUT I HAVE NOT YET MET A POLICE CONSTABLE WHO HAS NOT LOOKED DOWN THEIR NOSE AT ME !

so do you have a surf board? I know that feeling of the waves (on holiday!) :slwoot: gorgeous but never been surfing

Could going to the gym actually be called a HOBBY!?

I am still doing my DUNGEONS (as per 8 posts above) I got a Dungeon Game and played it but half way through I found an option of the menu "Dungeon Editor" and that was it!! I was OFF :sldv:

I collect fluff in my belly button.
