I tend to do something whenever I'm sitting at a light waiting to make a turn when my turn indicator is on and I'm not listening to music... I drum on my thighs and steering wheel in time with the indicator and make up cool rhythms. Does anyone else do this? haha

I usually have music on, but sometimes I will forget my ipod and I can't stand listening to radio, so I drum instead biggrin.gif

I show the same symptoms. The acoustics of the car while drumming on the steering wheel are actually quite good wink.gif

My bike sounds like a metronome all by itself.. maybe I should fix it.

Well I don't do rhythms but in long lonely trips I end up singing to avoide getting asleep. Which I'm sure is shocking when other drivers go by and see me yelling all alone laugh.gif

Hahahahha I do this all the time hahahahah

And it's pretty hard to avoid smile.gif)) I would just bang 4th, 8th, 8th note triplets and other rhythms against the turn indicator click smile.gif))

My friend drives a Renault and I swear his turn indicator sounds just the same as my Korg MA-30 metronome!!! smile.gif)))
