Default Motorcycles and...yoga!

So I started a yoga class a week ago and have gone every day so far. I think I am getting addicted.

Maybe it's just me, but I am thinking motorcycle riding and yoga aren't exactly the first two pasttimes one would picture the same person doing. So it made me want to ask - what other hobby/pasttime do you have that might surprise us?

My only real hobby is work and I am a self confessed workaholic. I rarely watch anything longer than 30 minute TV shows because I can't sit still much longer than that. I clean my bike a lot. My wife and kids never have dirty windows on their cars. My yard is cut at least 3 times per week and when I'm bored I vacume my garage.

If yoga gives you more energy I would stay far away from it but if it let's you relax I may try it. That is try it until I see something else that needs to be done or I realize that I have zero flexibility.

Maybe I'm just hyper and have the attention span of a goldfish...

Ha - you sound like my husband! He can't sit still to save his life, and the house and yard are better for it.

Paradoxically, yoga is giving me more energy AND relaxing me at the same time! I am less stressed at work, sleeping better but waking up earlier and easily, which if you knew me you would know I have never used those two words in the same sentence when discussing morning,

I try and choose interests that compliment my motorcycling interest...like video production. I thought about doing yoga at one point, but I figured it might be dangerous trying to do those poses going down the freeway at 70 mph.

My other hobby is music. I like to write and record songs. I've played in numerous bands over the years.

I do yoga as well but only as part of my P90X routine. First time I tried it I thought I had an easy night ahead of me.... my God was I wrong!!

Other than working out, I am into computers, old cars (have a 63 Lincoln and a 60 F100), glass artist, jack of all trades master of absolutely none
