so what's faster? mr2 turbo or CBR600RR....
it wasn't even a close fight.
Decided yesterday with the fine evening weather to go visit my parents at their caravan in Invarary. Thought John might like to head up there too so I sakde if he wanted to bring his bike for a run up the coast.
Well, apart from a stupid muppet in a white van not knowing the Highway code and various other road users not paying attention it was a fun run.
I may have a quick car but that aint no use when there is oncoming traffic and I'm stuck behind 6 cars doing 45mph in a 60 zone. A bike however can just breeze on by at 50 and have loads of space to make it comfortable. Which of course he did. Shame he had to keep stopping in laybys waiting for me to catch up. ho ho
Anyhow's, saw the parents, had a light non alcoholic refreshment and then we headed back down to sunny glasgow.
Of course, had to take some pics on the shores of Loch Lomond. Just had to be done
lovely weather -
took the car for a drive. Ah beautiful feeling, lovely car to drive. I think either the CAT or the exhaust itself is giving up cause the car has a lovely bark to it when gunning it. Maybe its been a while since I gunned like that but either way sounds great ;-)))
air con no more -
indeed the seal that was fixed would have appear to have failed under pressure. I will need to get the guy to check the car out with the UV light and goggles to check where the dye can can be found. More hassles.......
On the up side the car passed its service ok, the spark plugs were expensive but they are only changed every 45k miles so not such an issue I guess.
The car needs a darned good drive to get everything back to normal as it now spends most days doing nothing but sitting on the road. Hopefully some decent weather will allow me to have some fun in the coming weeks.
