Nothing beats powder snow skiing on a black slope for on-pants thrills. Throw in a few moguls and you've got a real kneebreaker if you f*ck it up.
Riding a tuned 750cc Kawa jetski at 40 kts is great fun too, as is getting the 16' Hobie Cat up on one pontoon going close to 20 kts.

Drinking beer is great too, but if you combine either of the above with a few beers your life will most likely be cut short. But damn, it would fun to try !

Combining the fun would be great, but I don't know 'bout riding a Hobie cat in a skiing piste. You'd still have the beer though

Pants on, zip done up, there is only one answer:

Bat outa hell in my HSV on a tight 'n twisty road. The Great Ocean Road from Anglesea to Apollo Bay springs to mind. My skin still tingles from the memories of the last time :)

I'm not a PPRuNe addict. (just need one more post)

Aerobatics in a a/c with plenty of spare horsepower is a must do at least once in your life.

As for cheap thrills - Paragliding or a light @rsed holden ute on a dirt road usualy getts me going.

Jumping out of a C172 at 10'000ft over the Whitsunday Islands in Oz.

Wow - what a view...

Best - Watching the world spin 'round in circles from the comfort of an aerobatics plane. :)

Worst - Handing over large sums of cash after best activity is all over http://www.pprune.org/ubb/NonCGI/frown.gif (OK, so it's not the worst, but it still sucks... )

Flying is easy - just throw yourself at the ground and miss.

Best Uttering the following words

"Yes dear your bum does look big in that"

Worst The ensuing bloodbath.

Feeton - funny you should say that. My best mate has owned 2 Senators in the past. The standard test in putting the new car through its paces was a trip to Apollo Bay!!!

Good on ya Bird Strike!

And the beauty of your simplistic pleasure, is that it can be included in most of the above, with minimal disturbance to the driver/diver/skier/drinker's itinary!
