Ever had a convertible? I had two, both didn't work. I had a hard top convertible, those are not to good if you leave it at home.

I've owned a convertible in the past, and it is a lot of fun. In my case, it was a sports car, which meant I could realistically only use it about five or six months out of the year. In winter conditions, it was simply undriveable.

One time - for my first mid-life crisis.

Sold it less than a year later before it went off warranty. The Ford Mustang had a lot of issues and I realized that it wasn't going to get better after the warranty ran out.

Wife bought an '05 Beetle a few weeks ago. Pretty easy to hit a button and the top goes down. I'm digging it for some canyon drives but the motorcycle is still more fun!
