On the bright side, once the US air force have dropped some defoliant the garden is perfect to set up some sections for a trials bike.
Still have to sell our old house before we can move in, so time & money is exceedingly tight. We may need to clear out the cob webs this weekend & go for a wobble.
Anybody like to buy my house in the beautiful Bay of Islands, hmmmm? Got a huge garage.......

It's not *my* traction that I'm worried about (even though I live on the side of a mountain). It's all the other idiots who are still driving as if it were summertime that keep me off my bike in the winter!

That is exactly what prompted me to sit my driving test after riding through 12 Scottish winters, a coach coming at me sideways.... Oh, I still cringe at the thought.

SS, I would be made to stand in the corner if I rolled out a flame thrower. More's the pity.

Multistory car park.... I've seen motards racing in them.
I have to ride an hour to remind myself what a traffic light does. Where I live we have a round about, a small one, right by the beach, close to two avocado trees. Very proud of it we are too. It's close to Countdown, my only indoor option.
Fortunately the worst we get is wind & rain.
