Oh - the irony..
« on: July 05, 2013, 12:56:48 pm »
Well - i'm less than 24 hours before picking up the TT and i can't help but smile. I've spent most of the year whining about the lack of weather protection on the Ducati, i'm about to pick up a full faired tourer and the UK gets hit by a heatwave..

However, the one constant with our weather is you can bet on rain coming in..

If it's you trading the Ducati for a Trophy that's completely fixed our weather than I'd like to say "thanks very much!"  :001:

So, why didn't you do it two months earlier?!  :233:  :001:

Well I commute in most weathers on the TT  (infact my car has not moved for three weeks) but tomorrow it is under wraps as the thunderstorms move in! I don't mind rain, fog and frost but thunderstorms .......no

Take a look at you tube, 'Berlin Patrol 2013" by mxritchie13.
He captured about 10 mins of a 4 hour storm on our way to berlin.
