I DONT BELIEVE IT.

Post by guest2360 »

Yesterday was dry and sunny here but with a cold wind, so I cut the grass.  Cloudy but calm today and 10C so time to wake it up after 2 months.  Only took half an hour to find all the kit and get the dust off the visor.  Pushed it off the drive into a heavy drizzle.  Try again tomorrow. Bugger.

Not a very good forecast up ere today, although yesterday was brill. Had the Twincam MOT in thr morning then a cracking run over the moors in the afternoon. Wall to wall blue skies if a tad breezy.

It's allright for those living in sub tropical Salisbury, but up here a Derbyshire drizzle requires a wet suit.

At last, back on the road.  My winter preparation has paid off.  Nothing added to a tank full of Tesco cheapest, no goo all over the shiny bits and battery plugged in once a fortnight for half a day. Went just as it did in December .

Well not 16deg as promised but at least it was dry up until we headed for home. Then it was only a bit of drizzle.
170miles not 200 as expected. Anne (SWMBO) led out and I led back.
All in all a good day. Roll on the better weather.
