Bloody AWESOME - full on blizzards - snow nice and deep - even the gritters are getting stuck!!!

Just been for a play in the 110 - not even a hint of getting stuck although the tyres help quite a bit. Bashed through some 3ft drifts no problem at all.Just wish the heater worked a bit better - should take the viscous fan off and fit a Kenlowe I suppose.

As usual carried enough kit to sink a battleship but didn't need any of it - bet if I hadn't been carrying it I would have though!!!

Best get to bed now I suppose - got to be up at 7.30.

None of the impending doom happened around here last night, clear skyís this morning with no sign of any snow, frost, or ice & I didnít notice any strong winds either.
All in all a pleasant ride on the motorcycle in to work for 45mins, didnít get cold & with nice dry Roads it was better than itís been all week.







Oops
I didnít mention the ĎMí word did I?

Now I know you live in a different country.

The Solenti Riviera is basked in warm sunshine and blue skies this morning

so the gritters are getting stuck but you are ploughing thru 3 ft drifts in your 110. hmmmmmmmmmmmm must be down to skill i guess.

you should take some pics of the snow cos we havent seen any yet and it might be the only snow we see

Lovely day here today, crips bright blue skies. A little cool it's true but a glorious November day.

The snow is a long long way away. Might pop over to yarmouth for a lunchtime snifter or 2.
