View Full Version : Going for a Ride

Well, the mercury is only around the 40 degree mark right now, but the sun is shining and it's a beautiful day for a ride so I'll be firing up the six and heading out for a nice drive. Of course, the top will be down.

Anyone else going for a ride?

Yep - later this afternoon. S'posed to be near 60, and I don't see a cloud anywhere!

With cloudless skies and the mercury in the 50's, I've been out doing errands around town in the '6 already. Now debating between a longer drive into the Hill Country or yard work. Such a hard choice!

Started my riding at 9 a.m. this morning. It was a comfy 36 with bright sun and Carolina blue skies. Top was off and it was a glorious morning listening to the growling exhaust.

Looked out the window, the sun was shining, temp was 59 degrees, said woo-hoo first day in a week I seen that bright thing. Told the wife I'm heading out to the bank, put on my three upper layers of clothing, went down to the garage, opened the door, started up the 3, backed out and went to the bank and back under the coldest grey-est clouds you ever saw. Sun was gone and the temp dropped down to fifty (felt like twenty) in a matter of minutes. Along the way everybody looking at me and I can't figure out why! I finally figure it must a been that big smile on my face and they probably thought I was nuts.

Almost sixty here and not raining for a change. Weather must have thought today was Monday. Anyhow, nice 10 mile ride at lunch to blow out the dust and back into the garage until tomorrow. Office catch up day or I would be cruising.

the temperature is close to freezing here today but it has stopped raining (for now). Today will be the last TR4A drive of the year for me as I will drive it to storage.

No sun, 45 degrees, So I put my ski cap on and went for a ride for an hour or so. Some people looked at me like I am crazy. I am crazy, crazy about driving my TR6.

Coldy and cool...but not too cold. Took the 6 out for a run, with the hardtop on, windows up and heater blowin....then back home to do some work on it and I actually made some more progress. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/thumbsup.gif

A fun day was had by all. I hope tomorrow brings more of the same.

Yes sir, I have already volunteered for the morning run to the coffee shop. It should be about 34, sunny and perfect when I depart. Amazing how long it takes me to make that short trip. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/driving.gif

Are you temps in C or F? Seem kinda low for S Carolina?

high 50's yesterday here on Coastal MA, but alas my project is still up on jack stands.

Low 40's cloudy & raw today. Even the garage is cold & damp!

Also a past Rangie owner; '88 with a new 4.0 litre, miss the truck, but not the expensive maintenance, my '00 Landcruiser is much more reliable & cushy with more power, but still looks likes all the other jellybean SUV's out there. What year you running?
