Yeah, everybody has hobbies when they retire. Some like getting new cars every 3 years. You'd save a lot of money on meals too if you just had bread and water (well maybe not that severe) but who wants to live like that in retirement? If it's not a financial hardship, there's no reason not to do it if you want to. Leasing isn't right for a certain segment, but it's a rather broad brush to paint everyone into that corner.My uncle's father is riding his Goldwing. He celebrated 80 with an Iron Butt ride. Celebrated 83 with a 50cc. (Hilton Head to LA in 50 hours.) Celebrated 85 with a 8-ride. (49 states in 10 days.) Far as I know, he drives a 2009-ish F-150.
