      Best thing I've seen all day.

    Why does the cat need two pairs of goggles?

      Because, the one pair of goggles do nothing.

    It just looks furry dangerous to me.
    This past week I rounded 150000km with the Honda. According to used car market myths, the vehicle should disintegrate any minute now. Took off early from work for some cross country skiing – to the mountains mid-week means driving on my own for 45 minutes without meeting traffic. Enjoyable.

      In my market, double that mileage, and it's still worth half-decent money.

        In my market, if it was a Volvo, it wouldn't affect its used car value. Since it is a Honda, I'd say it is worth 10-15% less than a similar car with below 150000km mileage.
        As I say above: "Myth". A lot of people get scared too easily.

      About 93K miles? That's about 40K-50K miles fewer than all 5 of my cars.

        We have been without electricity all weekend due to a huge storm, but when we get the juice back up, I'll find shots of my Volvo's odometers at 300000 and 333333km. VCNA was kind enough to send high mileage badges across the Atlantic for that, too

          I've pics of every odo as it crossed 100K, assuming I owned it then (Dad has done the same). 3 of our 4 daily drivers were 100K+ when we bought them as was my T'bird. My wife was driving my Mazda when it rolled 100K and she graciously humored me and got a picture.
          200K is the magic "time to move on" number for a daily driver. I've only taken one car past 200K, that was my '99 Odyssey and we traded it shortly after. My '93 Escort and '88 Caravan were both around 185K when I let them go. I suspect our Prius will be over 200K when we get rid of it.

            It's funny you call this time "magic" – I agree, just that I think it is the next level. A friend's friend, automotive engineer at VW, once said that they plan parts to last for 300000km. He himself drove a Volvo, pointing out that most moving parts looked as if their expected lifetime was twice that.

            I meant to say it's my magic number.
            Frankly, my Odyssey was still great at 200K, except for some hints that the trans was headed south. Again. The rest of the van was great, if worn. Engine used no oil, still had the original exhaust & shocks.struts, etc. We had started camping and pulling a large-ish pop up camper and thought it was best to move to an SUV, especially with the looming trans trouble.

      If I own the car, I don't consider it as high-mileage till it's traveled at least an entire light-second.

    I like your toy, Mr. Cat. How long have you been riding?

    I'm not sure wrapping the cat leash around the rider's neck is the best strategy. OTOH, Thai take away packaging is very creative.
