Drove it to the wrong side of Ipswich and back, and had to put some go-go juice in in the process.  That might be the first time I've put fuel on since Scotland...
Its well known what my views are of Ipswich.

It would appear a contracted something unpleasant on my day trip to the shithole  >:(

I keep telling you that you canít catch Gout! ::) ::) :D :D
It wasn't that I came away with.

The front end of mine has been very wandery on  cambers and even thickly painted white lines recently. Decided to swap front & rear wheels today to see if it helps. Discovered front tyres are close to the legal limit so that probably explains the symptoms.
When I took the rear wheels of I noticed serious cracking on the inner sidewall of one of the tyres, so need to replace all four.  :'(
Hoping to get one pair changed tomorrow and the other pair when I next get paid.
Also cleaned up and treat some minor areas of corrosion before it really gets a hold.

Left it running all night and finished off with an hour on the M23/A23 to top it off.

I pity the poor sod who gets lumped with it when we're done with it... Limited to 53mph and utterly gutless... :o struggled to maintain 40 up Handcross Hill empty :D
