    People from other countries on the same lattitude laugh at us, a little bit of snow and it all grinds to a halt, everyone is driving on the cheapest 'summer' tyres which offer next to no grip in these conditions, all the Polish and Romanian people who work with me think its ridiculous, when you look around the car park almost all of them have matching sets of winter or all season tyres on their cars as they prepare for adverse conditions, its hugely annoying being stuck in a jam when you know that you have the tyres and ability to get where you need to go.

    The sensible way is to fit all season tyres, the cross climates on the wife's car lasted almost 25k and provided grip in all conditions, we get a lot of snow here in Cumbria and 'summer tyres are just not worth the hassle when you can buy an alternative that will give you the best of both worlds.

    ZIEX are summer tyres so they will be crap in any snow, they are good for the rest of the year though.
    No snow here yet but I've fitted a set of Hankook 4 season tyres to the golf to make sure I can get to work when the weather does turn.

    I found the only way to get leathers that fit is to go and try them all on in J&S then either buy new or find someone selling the same ones that fit you that they bought online and get them for half price.
    Italian leathers are always too small, German ones are generous in the fit and UK sizes are generally about right.

    @Dave_Q If you are near the M62 then Oulton is the only choice for a bike trackday, it is simply the best circuit in the UK on a bike.
    I have a set of well used hein gericke leathers you can have for cost of postage, I fell off at the top of clay Hill in them at 110mph so they look like I have been bear wresting with them but they are still in good order, they should fit you, they are red and white and black, drop me a line if you want them.

    They are like this but in worse condition

    There are no cheap campers these days, buy a convertible and AB&B/pod it, I was supposed to be doing the NC500 with a friend on our bikes in may this year, it didn't happen, so myself and the wife are going to do it in her 308CC early next year, we will have the roof down all the time unless its raining, using a camper wears thin when you are shitting in a bucket and you want a comfy bed and hot shower.

    If you can’t/won’t/would never because OMG depreciation/whatever buy a new petrol car today, why are you worried about not being able to do so in 10 years time? There will still be plenty of old shitboxes around, asking prices might firm up a little mind. 🤦‍♂️

    What's the issue here? It's not banning petrol or diesel cars, just the sale of NEW ones. Going to be plenty of diesel and petrol cars still around for a good while longer.

    This arrived last week:


    Much lighter than the standard one, and feels nicely made. Tidies the rear end up nicely.

    This had to come out too, with it in it sounded close to standard.



    It doesn't look like much but makes a big enough difference. It was rivetted in place too - taking a drill to your nice new exhaust is fun......I guess they have to do this to pass type approval?

    I even made a wee video. I'll do a better one on the bike it it ever stops raining'
