At least I discovered some pretty decent road improvements on the A49 in the north Wigan area.
I'd decided to give the Suzuki some exercise. My heated gloves helped, but I wish I'd taken my old banger (which has handshields, a tall screen and heated grips).
Never been a great fan of microwaved meals but I was happy to consume one when I arrived home. That and two mugs of tea with sweetners. (Ran out of sugar.)
