My motivation for the hobby burned hard for the first four years. Then my wife and I bought a house. This disturbed my motivation quite a lot. Suddenly other things became more important. After some months most work on the house was done and the fire came back again.
In September I surprisingly bought a Superbike. Again the hobby suddenly was much less important to me. Now the weather does not allow driving the bike, so the "old" hobby will fill this hole until next summer. Then I will return to the track and spend the money on the bike. I am not sure if after six years in the hobby I will still do it in 2017... 1:1 Motorsport just seems to be the next (logical?) step and the first racetrack event this year brought back the good feelings I had in my first year in RC.
Maybe the threadstarter just needs a new challenge
