So no top down and no slk !!!

But i made most of my day off in the wife's 90bhp tdi Fiesta , on its winter tyres in the yorkshire Dales
Did i have as much fun as in the slk.....hummmm almost.
hope you like the pics and the mods let me off as its not the slk 😉
So now i need to trade the tdi for a fiesta St with a extra 110 bhp.....bet that fun.

Very good 🙂 60mph most of the day on snow/ice...anti skid did not come on once ! And that was up hill.

I did take the slk out for a top down run today as it was nice and sunny and forcast no snow.
Came out the shops to find it had gone pitch black and then it chucked it down !
Drive out 45mins......car clean and dry 2hrs
Should of stuck to the festa 🤣

So no top down and no SLK !!!

But though it may be sunny(sh) in the Yorkshire Dales generally: (Think "All Creatures Great & Small" country side..!!)

I question whether it is ever Top Down weather at Tan Hill Inn...??

I went to the shops. Said 10c on the dash but I'm not sure that accounted for the windchill 😂 . I don't really mind though as I've been riding a bike for 45 years in all elements. Thought I'd get an over the shoulder shot on the way home:

I sort of like supermarket car parks. Here in the centre of town it's rare to see so much sky.

Shake down run today.

5 mins and the rain hit.

Shake down run tonight.
Amazing how much more likely folks are nibbling an AMG, top down and at night.
More amazing that they think striding the lane lines, being in an SUV, being in a little box with go faster tin tray,
makes it any more likely that they can stick with a 55.

Never mind Global Warming - That's Your Air-Scarf melting all the snow....!! 🧐

My friend wanted to know what the air scarf does. I said it blows warm air on your neck, sort of like a friendly date. She got the hint.

It is probably the Air Scarf and our strong passion for road trip that create global warming :D

I couldn't have answered such a question better myself ;)

After several days of 2ºF (-16ºC), the weekend finally warmed up a bit (62ºF). Did some maintenance (washed and vacuumed the car, then checked the drain holes). Once done, I quickly dashed off on an important errand.....
