    Replaced the old driving lights on the Jeep with some new led cubes, and gave it a good clean and detail for Spring. Not too bad looking for a daily driven 21 year old Jeep. It’ll probably rain by the end of the evening.

    Had a ride out on the Tuonos with my son this afternoon. It started off dry, but we both got a bit of a soaking on the way back. :confused:

    Your Jeep looks great, OsteKuste! Did your washing of it bring on the rain? Funny how often that holds true. :rolleyes::joy:

    I knew that 50p Meccano set you bought off Uddersfield market would come good one day. :p:D

    Honestly, I’d love a Meccano set. We don’t really have the equivalent here in the States.

    Got out on the interceptor today. It tried to rain a couple of times, but managed get home without getting wet. Was in the house about 20 mins and the heavens opened up.

    That is one good looking bike. I’ve pondered a Continental GT as a second bike in the shed

    I test rode the GT and the interceptor. Both bikes are capable, and competitively priced, which is no surprise as they are almost identical. However I preferred the more upright riding position on the interceptor to the GT. Both are cracking looking bikes though. :):)

    Take it that it feels more ‘period’ than the thruxton?

    Apart from the obvious power differences the Thruxton feels much more planted on the road to the Interceptor. The weight is almost identical so it is a bit of a surprise that there is so much difference in the feel when on the bikes. However, It could be down to the riding position ?

    Plus better suspension and tyres and maybe a stiffer frame?

    Had some family over for lunch today. Survived with this non-Triumph branded beverage. About six gnt in and I can almost be sociable.

    Fitted an MRA touring screen to the GS this morning, managed a short half an hour test ride. So far I'm impressed, a lot less wind noise and buffeting.
