Tell me about it .

I have never seen fog like this .
Had to use the lights too to commute and impossible to go for a road ride as too dangerous .

All very surreal riding in the fog. Very quiet and still.

Think riding a bike is quiet and wierd?
I'm sat on a tug boat moored to a buoy off Canvey Island until the 3rd of jan! Can't see the shore (or the other tugs which are only 200m away). Can hear the engines of passing ships but can't see a thing. Had to assist some ship's the other day and trying to find them by Radar is no fun I can assure you! Hope it clears soon!

Oh and BP in their infinite wisom have booked a Tanker in for the 25th at 11am. Genius!

Drifting a car is like jumping a bike, once you can you can't imagine how you lived without it! :lol: (Volvo 740 GLT 16v with 165bhp, surprisingly fun even after my BMW 635csi)
