Our local county council  were out gritting for the first time this autumn/winter last night. The temp got down to 2'C on bone dry roads, so out they came   :230: I knew I should have gone out on the CrossTourer powered by Honda  yesterday, instead of Cross Fire 2 powered by Saxon 

It won't stop me riding ,but we've only had 5 clear months since the roads were last white over  :157:

BLU . YOU JAMMY  :172: ARD !!

Managed to get out yesterday and do a breakfast run, only got 700 ml on bike so still trying to get my head around the  bike, it's a dct so a bit of a departure from the old only had it about 7 weeks , so it's gotta go back and get serviced. This is going to be a long winter I think

I bought my DCT in Feb this year ,and rode it through all the salt and ***te until it cleared in May. The only bit of tarnish I got was on one or two nipples against the hub.
Got over 6k on it now and still loving it  :152: Even more so when it warms up again  :190:
