confused CRUISE (a definition)

It's been sad to hear about the couple of unfortunate events that have happened recently involving peoples rides and cruises.

Now unless the English language has changed that drastically (and I am not ruling out the possibility) my dictionary defines CRUISE thus:

.. to move to and fro, or from place to place for pleasure: (of a car, aeroplane, etc.) to move along easily at a moderate speed

Now from my perspective there are too key phrases here -

1. for Pleasure - which should imply that the whole experience is a life enriching one.

2. ..at a moderate speed - which of course states the bleeding obvious.

So I've got this to say with NO apology - if these aren't your intentions then don't go on a Cruise. You only needlessly endanger other people (both on the Cruise and general public) and risk damage to your pride and joy.
There are club events that give you the opportunity to test the limits of yours and the cars abilities (or your competitive streak) in relative safety and if you exceed those limits then there are no innocent bystanders to get caught up in your lunacy.

If you damage your ride in a competitive event then you have my sympathy but short of actual catastrophic mechanical failure if you damage it on a Cruise then you are on your own.

Let's enjoy CRUISING for the camaraderie and opportunity to see new / different places with those who share a common interest and leave the competition to the appropriate venues.
Cheers
Russ

YEs i totally agree

I love to crooze (even if it is just a T-18)

but i am forced not to go on organised croozes cause of dickheads with Egos the size of their exhaust tips (bigger the tip, bigger the dickhead) who want to show off but have no skill what so ever, hence accidents happen

just my $4.65....
