fun on ice

Post by peter2b » Thu 29 Dec, 2016 18:20

just re disovered what fun you can have on icy roads in a rear wheel that ,i have to drive on the country lanes arround where I live to get to work , theses z3's are very forgiving with plenty of warning if you try to push things too hard , but with 40 + years of driving I know how to drive on icy/snowy roads but on seeng how other car drivers behave I have to really be on the ball

Quite right. :rtm: You're certainly on your metal today!..... just make sure you don't pedal it! (unless you get a good price that is) :puzzle: ?
