Canny run out today, after pub lunch!

Marsden (by Standedge Canal Tunnel)
Over and past The Saddleworth Hotel
Delph
Onto A672, over Saddleworth Moor
Elland
Birstal

Christ on a bike.... Some 1:4 and hairpins!!

Really sensed a lengthening brake pedal (constantly in tranny lockdown ๐Ÿ˜ฑ) and the 'smell of death' wisping up from the discs ๐Ÿ˜ต.

When we finally returned to Tesco, to buy a bite for supper, I sizzled my fingers on the front ally spokes..... Gahhhh ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

Had a very relaxed [... and turkey baked] trundle out today.

Sowerby Bridge (Tuel Lane lock)
& along Calder Valley...
Hebden Bridge
Todmorden
Littleborough
Milnrow
&M62 back.

Y'know... for a guy thrashing his works van from A to B these places, dotted along the valley, will just be ' bloody queues!'.....

Taking it more sedately, however, there are old mills [the canal is always by the road] and the railway, commanding a large chunk of the little valley bottom left - massive stone arches forcing themselves into/over the road.

Very impressive...

Never seen the Pyramids ๐Ÿค”, "all that history" >> nah, gimmie Industrial Revolution every time.... We have our pyramids ๐Ÿ†๐Ÿ˜Ž

Just an 'end of term' report.... 870miles, not a drop of oil used/water/TX pink.

Stormed up from Leeds at a truly 'zoomy/throbb/throbb' 68.... Traffic nicely spaced + no jams.

MOT due 07/09.. We will find out what that ยฃ30 CAT has managed in a year ๐Ÿค”

That's lovely but not a daily surely. Keep the one you've got and have that as a toy?

@Matty.... No, one car at a time (street/permit parking) ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

Y'know.... For a grand, 2yr no FTP, no rust & having spent about ยฃ200 in consumibles+ large hatch/5 door arse end ๐Ÿ˜ต๐Ÿค”....

There's no way I could get that much of a laugh [yupp.... STILL flooring it @lights ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚] for as little... and be happy the car is 100% top banana ๐Ÿ’ž๐Ÿ‘Œ

No Fu##kin Way is it getting chopped in ๐Ÿ‘๏ธ

As my alloys will be removed, for tyres on Monday....ย  I decided to have a go at the brake grime, using the [I believe it is TFR..] stuff I got a while ago.

I gave each wheel two doses, around 5min soak. 4/1 water in a spray bottle...

After picking at flaky 'plasti-sill coating' when SuziQ was up on the MOT lift.....

I'm popping into Toolstation for some more of this....

'Real World' tyre opinion.... ๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ†

The balance is spot on... I was getting the dreaded 'wrist jiggle'@67 prior = now creams it through to 85 *officer๐Ÿ˜ฑ

Will see 'wear patterns' over the next 10k but nice enough ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿš™๐Ÿ’จ
