I can guarantee snow in West Cornwall on Saturday as I am taking the K75S and sidecar to the mechanic for a full service and MOT.

In the middle of all this talk of cold weather I saw a lizard out sunbathing today so it can’t be all bad.

it's bloody cold here, but I spent last night at Sarlat in the motorhome, I can't believe the difference 100 miles makes, the sun was out, bikes were out! I'd have been on my bike if I had it with me!
I'm back home now, had to smash the ice from the chickens water bowls! and drain the van down to protect the plumbing :(

ooh one thing though, on the way home I visited NOZ in Brive, they have battery powered heated insoles for your boots for a fiver, haven't tried them yet, but for that price !!!
I've always suffered with cold feet, even as a kid, (oddly I can't cope with hot feet either!)
