Ey-up

Post by nick280 » Thu Mar 05, 2015 11:03 pm

As an Adventure owner and having asked for a dedicated Adventure forum on this mighty site, I'd just like to say THANKS, and I'm pished!

Here's to saltless roads and the better weather to come. Roll on grit and salt shortages.

I guess this is a UK issue (we're a useless bunch). Learn to drive on snow and ice, don't aid the unprepared and incapable, let them stay at home.

Summer is no-but weeks away (I bloody hope)

Cheers!

Can't be letting KT suffer for my pleasure, even if I bath her afterwards ;)

Having said what I've said above, KT is coming out this weekend. Major withdrawal symptoms are hampering reality! Lovely bike JJay. Where are you located? I'm guessing in the south as the roads are road coloured rather than white lol. Ride round the North when the roads are dry and there is a cloud of salt behind the bike. My chain and nipples are suffering lol.

15 degrees and bright sunshine at Cadwell Park today. I don't want to jinx it (and I've already seen the forecast for tomorrow) but summer feels like it's already here.

Well, it's supposed to be half decent tomorrow but I noted the bloody gritters had been out in some areas tonight.

Might be an Adventure day tomorrow :D
