    I won on the euro million lottery :hyper:

    Good Morning :hello:

    I'd like to be asleep but I'm not so hey ho best to get on with life. Blowing a gale here, probably 30+ at times. Forecast for tomorrow is heavy rain and 40+ winds. Not much riding this weekend so off to spinning in an hour.

    Later I'm taking the kids to look at cars. Fortunately there's a huge motor park in Preston where all the main dealers are located.

    Dog walked, just enjoying a nice relaxing Forest. Today I will be dismantling the drivers door of the Little Tykes car to replace the cable for the internal handle. Not a difficult job, but long winded cos the inner card and outer door skin have to both come off. New cable was £20 from Mercedes, and I'm not chucking cash at Fred In A Shed when I can do it myself.

    I know. We could be in for quite a lot of low temps and maybe even snow.

    Good morning people! I haven't had a good look outside yet but it seems a tad damp and breezy.

    Thats interesting and as you say if it helps to keep bums on saddles then great.
    I have noticed the weight and you never know in future as tecnology advances there may well be weight savings made.
    The other thing which I was curious about last night was the 15mph limit. You would have thought 18/20mph might have been a bit more realistic, however it seems there are ways to cheat it.
    I have noticed Ribble seem to be one of the brands that are at the forefront and thats what your mate has got.

    Its more the snow that is the worry. It causes chaos.
    The cold weather is not nice but you can cope with it I suppose.
    I saw hiw badly parts of Europe have fared and it didnt look good.
