Rob, sorry - just can't help myself....We (really my dear wife's rocket) are not "driving it daily, accumulating boering, nonproductive hours and miles", AND we do "treat it with proper reect by pampering it and choosing to drive it only when we want to enjoy the form and function"! Actually RR is now hibernating with her cover, snug as a bug in a rug! Yea, I'll owe you a beer for this....

I drive mine every day that I can (not when it's wet-that's what the truck is for). I have yet to abuse mine, but any chance I'm offered to justify pushing the pedal to the floor always makes me grin.

I bought my Sky for pleasure only. It replaced my 25' Oday sailboat. My wife and I enjoy top down cruses out in the country or an occasional trip to Sandy Hook, NJ or the Highlands. There are times that I may clean it out a bit but try to stay within the speed limits. She sure likes to rev freely to the limit in the lower gears effortlessly.

It's my DD and yes, sometimes I needlessly abuse it but in the fun way.

Pamper.
Want it looking good. Rims shinning , clean, catching eyes, Know the power is under the hood but don't have to kick it to prove anything. I'm a old cruiser. Crank the stereo up, drop the top, lock the cruise control at 7 over and the sky and vette are for good times, and going places and my fun term,, Profiling.
When we go out to eat, its usually to the beach. 2 lane road and long straight stretches. cars will not pass and run 52 to 55. 5 and 6 car passes is when I enjoy driving it. Other than that. Its a cruiser and i'm a grandma.

I bought mine for commuting 45 miles each way and saving gas while looking good and having fun. I drive my truck in nasty weather.
I did however find out one afternoon after work, that this thing does great tight donuts!!

when i think of the question "do you needlessly abuse" the sky, i don't think of whether i drive a lot or a little, but whether i drive it like a d-bag, in which case the answer is no. I don't needless abuse my sky. I have 73K miles in 6yrs, so a daily driver and have a lot of fun in it but never driven it like a d-bag.

Abuse..

Not really. Do I drive it hard? Sometimes but I also take very good care of my Sky. I would call it more fun then abuse.
All the way to 104,000 miles on her now..

I do both.

They may be boring and tedious miles to work, but the Sky is one of the smiles that helps me keep my sanity! (no matter how many headaches or unwanted attention it ever brings)
