Default Re: Build or Ride? Which Do You Enjoy More?

I'm going to bump this old thread because I was just setting in the garage, too cold for an evening ride, and realized how much time I spend just 'looking' at my bikes. To be honest, if I calculated it out I'd have to say that my 'looking time' outweighs my building and riding times.

I sit, kick back with a cup of coffee, or a beer if it's early enough, and just stare at my bikes. I engineer and come up with ways to make them better, more comfortable, faster or look better. I'll bet if I kept track of those hours I'd have many more of them than building and riding combined.
What about you? Anyone else enjoy their contemplation time?
