As the title stated, I never thought I would ever own a truck. I concur a truck would've been beneficial and practical for me but I've never been attracted nor interested. When I first mentioned to my girlfriend "bae I'm thinking about getting a truck" she looked at me in disbelief and I quote "what the hell did you just say, you want a what now" knowing full well she heard me. Not that she dislike trucks but due to the silent I have shown to every acquiring such a vehicle. I explained the Ridgeline will be a excellent daily driver, with many perks and not to mention future wise it's real family friendly, which had her >:) Well here I am today, the proud owner of a new BE! I've been lurking around this forum for about a month or so, ever since I had a slight peak of fascination when Car & Driver raved in their review during first drive. The fact that the interior leaned a bit more on the luxurious side along with numerous comments stating the Ridgeline rides more like a car than a "real" truck deepen my curiosity. Due to the positive reviews of forum members such as yourself, and with my Infiniti FX exhibiting signs of retirement, I came to the conclusion I MUST PURCHASE THIS TRUCK! Well that's my story, and no in-depth review besides I truly enjoy driving my BE. Here is a picture of her, and one with her new best friend. Yes I refer to my BE as her :laugh:

You're proof that Honda's marketing to sell trucks to folks you never thought about owning a truck is working! It's practical, functional and not a bad mix of ride, performance and fun. Enjoy your ride. This is now my 3rd truck (one Ranger and one other RL). This is the best ride yet.

Congratulations on your new wheels. My favorite part of the photo is your neighbor down the street with their two BA black vehicles, don't pick a race with them !

Nice BE! Looks good with her new BF. Welcome to the ROC. The only slight downside I see is keeping TWO black vehicles shiny; however, I'm sure you can live with that! (and here while scrolling down, I thought we'd have a pic of your new BE with your girlfriend!!)

Haha someones thirsty! Not sure how she would feel about that but yes definitely will be a challenge, not to mention the additional heat black brings in Texas. All my cars been black so far and I keep telling myself next one would be different, next thing I know I wake up with a black car 0:) Although it was hilarious when she asked "Why didn't you get the black edition in a different color..." Had me like :act024:

I think that's probably about the best driveway duo I've seen yet!

Enjoy, Enjoy ! !
That's high remark, thank you! But I don't know, that duo behind my cars might give me a run for my money. Their Prius hybrid vs my hybrid, their Suv vs my BE :laugh:

That sounds like your new vehicle is going to get expensive very quickly!

Remember the rule for engagement rings: it's 3 months' gross salary, not net!
Some great taste in cars!
A more "cost effective" ring went out the window as soon as I decided to purchase the i8 for myself :crying:

Thanks, haven't drove the weekend car (bmw) once since purchasing the BE!
