    A few will probably be familiar with my adventures on using my 1967 Norton 650SS as a daily rider. With severe flood warnings in place I had to pick dad and I a route that would be okish weather wise.

    Today was beyond freezing headed out with the intention of going to Matlock got as far as Monyash after starting out at the Cat some different country roads an dad was really cold so turned off for Monyash stopped and had some chips and dad had a bacon Sarny.

    The SS performed perfectly even in those rubbish conditions no matter what we came across she took it in her stride an as usual dad's GSXR 750 was great as well.

    Quite a few bike pic's should have some footage on the go pro of dad an I talking an riding which I'm gonna edit over the weekend once I've warmed up.

    Freezing in Monyash getting warm

    I have to say, that’s a refreshing outlook. Most people I have known with similar bikes keep them wrapped up in cotton wool (much like me with my blade) so it’s nice to see it being used and enjoyed :)

    The matching video to the pictures is up might take a while for the highest quality to kick in but it's getting there :)
