    We only got the lightest of dustings down here in farmer land, so not really any opportunity for getting out and playing about... Didn't stop me taking pictures though...

    Do it mate, thats exactly what I did last year!

    I think we're due some later in the week down this way, but I don't think it will be much. http://www.metcheck.com/V40/UK/FREE/...p?zipcode=GL11.

    We got about an inch maybe just over, and that was mostly on the hills.

    Yet everyone seemed to forget how to drive.

    i wanted an imola, but when i was buying there was either pre facelift, or facelift with yellow interior, i wanted facelift with full black leather. everytime i see an imola i punch myself

    I know the feeling dude, really love the yellow but when i bought mine it had so much history and optional extras i would have been silly not to buy it, especially as all the others i had seen was a rough as a dog, im happy with it now TBH even though i'd love a yellow one but having said that silver is by far the fastest colour, as we all know

    And the yellow ones break the most IMO...

    That's why mine is now a yellow/black hybrid... I thought it might reduce breakages by 50%.

    My journey this morning was exactly the same, people stuck all over the place, a white van man giving it far too much right foot and just snakeing side to side where i just drove calmly past them all with no fuss at all, even had to do a hill start and she just pulled off with just the smallest amount of wheelspin and trundled off up the hill.

    Still very boring here in Oxfordshire. Totalled around 3mm snow over the last week. Enough to close the golf course, but not enough for having any fun in the snow...

    Have still come to work on the motorbike every day this week!

    Cheers,

    Haven't taken any pictures this year yet but here's a few from last time it snowed.








    There's a crap load more snow this year so a bigger better snow body kit is achieveable
