Thought I'd pose an opportunity to share some of our pleasant driving experiences with each other, even if it is a little esoteric. Plus I want to hear everyone shamelessly praising their cars and saying what they like most about them. Comfy? Fast? Like driving your favourite armchair? Tell me! Here's my most recent: It wasn't exactly under the best of circumstances. I was consoling a friend going through a break-up when mid-evening, she got a text informing her she had one hour to get her stuff from this guy's house, move out and go back to live with her folks. It's a good forty mile drive from here straight down a dual-carriageway which unfortunately has been receiving some much needed resurfacing for the last two years, holding us up with lane closures, diversions and escort vehicles. Surprisingly, we made it there in time despite all the average speed cameras and roadworks. We loaded the boot with space to spare and set off for her parents, a further fifteen or twenty miles. We unpacked her things and arranged her old room. Once everything had calmed down, we drove back to my house leaving at around 11pm. Taking into account all the roadworks on the dual-carriageway, we opted to drive back over Dartmoor towards Moretonhampstead, before finally hitting the A30. Despite it all, we had a lovely journey. For those who don't live around here, Dartmoor is a massive nature reserve in the South of England. From our starting point, there are a lot of neglected, bumpy, windy and hilly singletrack roads before you get to the reasonably well maintained B roads. Either way, no matter the weather conditions or time of day, it's a very bad idea to take these roads lightly and put your foot down. They require constant attention, two hands on the wheel and invariably you'll be shifting up and down the gears. And the journey was fantastic. The car performed wonderfully. The handling was beautifully responsive, while the power was perfectly adequate to take on the slopes without breaking a sweat. We barely noticed how bumpy the roads were as the ride was very comfortable, which was surprising since we've both always said how hard the standard upholstered seats in the 6th Generation Accords are. They were fairly hard in my old one too, while the seats in the Citroen were very soft. But this didn't bother us at all this time. She was especially enjoying herself with the stereo, playing music to help herself feel a bit better. We're both huge fans of the stock speakers in Honda cars. Despite their age, they're fantastic. The frequency response is beautifully sharp and clear. Never muddy and never distorted. And this is all with my personal EQ settings (an intermediate mid-scoop with bass and treble boosted) which some car speaker systems have found punishing. It took us about an hour and a half to complete the 70 mile journey, at the end of which she was fast asleep and I wasn't far off myself. Apologies for the rambling, but I am very impressed with the beastie. He's comfortable, responsive and above all fun to drive. I'm gonna keep him for many years ahead!
