Went to my local independant tyre shop to get the new Bridgestones fitted yesterday. Of course just as the final nut was being torqued-up it started to rain; still better than snow, eh? I decided to put some miles on the tyres to scrub them in, just in case the weather was fine the weekend and I could get out for a ride. There's some brilliant riding roads just a few miles outside Aberdeen, so I set off North then turned inland. Yikes! All the side roads still have snow/ice/crap on them; so it was a sort of tippy-toe ride. I was going to take a photo of the rear tyre to show off my riding skills to everyone, but the wear strip is only about half-inch wide so that'll have to wait.
