Looking good Gary, as usual....

a little envious of those low miles... and the new bespoke fuel tank is a beast. :thumbup:

Cheers @clivehorridge.
I'm loving the new tank, I went from a cracked tank to this one a lot easier then expected especially with lockdowns etc. Ryan did an awesome job.

Get towards the £200 area to fill but I run on super unleaded. Next months trip will be a good test of the range. (Obviously will be a full trip report)

I missed it by a few miles but during the coast to coast the 80 hit 95k!

I reckon about 18 months or so it'll be at 100k.

We've not had a shiny picture for a while either, this was a few weeks back

Still looking clean but where it belongs.

Added heat shields seem to be doing their job and keeping the exhaust heat from burning the paint off the chassis etc.

While I've had a couple of days off work for school holidays, we had a last minute trip out. Kids and wife wanted seaside, forecast wasn't looking good. I suggested lanes, picnic, fish and chips at the coast.
So off we went
Tablet chucked in the mount, picnic In the cool bag (don't keep the fridge in the boot) didn't even need fuel as had 3/4 tank (have I mentioned I love my long range tank)
Onto the lanes we go

Carried on with glorious weather.
New tablet mount now fully tried and tested.

Nice little Ford crossing

Only about 18inch deep so nothing to worry to 80

have driven this before when water was over the stepping stones! Not in the 80!

Did a few more lanes then continued with the other part of the deal.
A rather chilly and foggy Whitby!
Drove down into the clouds from the sun

Rather then sitting in traffic on the way home we decided to have a sit in the restaurant, been nearly a year since we had a family meal out!!

A little trip out turned into 140ish miles, meal out, ice cream and another great time.
80 still just does what I ask with no fuss.
