Good Start

I'm commuting by sports tourer at the moment, as the little Yam has developed an annoying habit of losing its electrics at random times, and until I find and fix the fault I can't rely on it to get me to work and back on unlit roads.

This morning, I had the most amazing run into work. The roads were dry and clear (two cars, one bicycle in the entire journey, which is no big surprise at 5.30 am on New Year's Day) and visibility was excellent. Although not exactly warm, the temperature was mild enough to be unnoticed. So much high-speed tomfoolery was to be had, even in the pitch-dark with the standard crappy Triumph lighting.

Dry road, clear air, warmish, sparse traffic. Let's hope it's an omen for 2012.

  4. From a scrapped Fiat Panda that was used for ten years as a boat anchor in Novosibirsk. And then pickled in nitric acid for a month.
