  Kumho KU31's -
I was impressed with these on my wee jaunt North. I was leaving bite marks on the drivers seat but the tyres gripped in the wet no problem even with steering corrections mid corner they gripped well. I still have the F1's up front and the car is fairly well balanced.

  Run oop north -
had some time off and decided to head away for a couple of days to get some fresh air in me lungs. So headed up to Fort William and then across to Aviemore via the Newtonmore road. Was kinda damp with patches of sun and ended up having a play with a de-badged 5 series. Was good fun and very safe (not much other traffic on that road anyway) but er the brakes are giving some grief now hehe. After that a wee run up the A9, very boring but dear god do some folks try and do daft things to spice it up!

After a fuel stop in Inverness it was onwards to Ullapool and yet another BMW, 3 series this time decided to have a go. At this point the roads were just a little on damp side so i was pretty cautious however Toyota 2 BMW 0 hehe. Booked into the Arch Inn and kicked back with a shower and a rest. A few beers in the bar then off for a chippy (an in joke but funny nonetheless) then some more beers and some sleep. A couple of pics of Rannoch Moor covered in snow

Up early the following day and onto the Gairloch road and that bloody front drivers caliper decided it wasn't going to let go of the disc grrrrrr. However I had a cunning plan. A picnic on Little Gruinard beach, on me own ( all together now.. aaaawwwwwww ) but sod it what a beach! Just kick back and think happy thoughts

  sun's up!
indeed was out yesterday looking for new brake pipes and on the way back via the parents I had the tbars out. Wasn't exactly warm but the sun was shinning and that's all that mattered. I must get a video with decent sound of the induction kit / turbo spooling through the Clyde Tunnel. It did sound very nice :-)
