A few pictures from a 2 day (1st and 2nd of october) trip to Italy and Switzerland
I've been there at least 5 times, but there has never been so few traffic as this time. It might be helped be the late time in the year and the fact that I drove there on the evening of the first...
Me and a few of the lads are having a run out to The Tan Hill Inn and Buttertubs Pass next Sunday. If you'd like to join us we'll be meeting at The Scotch Corner Hotel at 11.00.

She cruised through without a problem. Gave me advice about front brake pads and disks, but I am planning to let Roger at Peak Alfa do these next month anyway. Now its all computerised through DVLA, they have to write some advice on the certificate, even if there is nothing wrong with the car...
Here's a list of AO members who have expressed an interest on Gil's original thread.

I've been planning, this winter, to do a run over the Hartside Pass in cumbria one weekend before xmas. Its an awesome route that is usually rammed with bikers, however the majority of them should be all tucked up for the winter now leaving the road free for us to play.
