    Not too far from me. If I'm not working I'll come - be good to meet you.

    I’ve just been checking the diary. The weekend after Mothering Sunday ( mum prefers this nomenclature over mother’s day). Plus having a look on the map - it’s the other side of Ruthin.  All being dry I can come up for a few days and give the x1/9 a run.

    It's only* got to get there though, it's down hill nearly all the way home!
     
     
    If it's not lobbing it down I'm up for coming along on one of the scooters.

    I got back today from a short break in France.  Chariot of choice was the 406, despite my reservations due to the running rough when cold issue.  611 miles on Thursday down to Bordeaux and all was well.  But on Friday morning my sphincter got a workout as it kept cutting out on roundabouts and at T-junctions.
    Mrs T asked what my plan B was.  Dump it and fly home was my response.  However, before the hols I knew at full operating temperature it was fine, so lesson learnt I left it to warm up for 20 mins each morning and problem solved*.

    Closest I'll ever get to a bottle of Petrus.
    Saw several 205s and a few R4s.

    There's also shit loads of 406s in and around Bordeaux, as well as plenty of other 90s shite.  It's the first time I've ever been to the region and I really like it,  as it has a nice relaxed feel (out of season anyway).
    The Dune du Pilat near Arcachon is a sight to behold.  Tallest sand dune in Europe.

    On the way home today, the Mulsanne straight.  Fastest I went was 60, as the locals were pottering along...

    1,500 miles in total at high 40s mpg, and apart from a sore right butt cheek it's a comfy old cruiser.

    You are more than welcome to some of mine. 
    We only had a few inches last night, but still meant I had to scrape the car off and then drive at 20mph below the speed limit all of the way to work. 
    This is a shot from the Starbucks / garage where I’ve dropped in for lunch today...

    I’d take wet and windy today!

    I'm not sure, I don't think I have the only one today, mine waited until I parked the car so it could dump hailstones on me as I walked to the house tonight
