I used to hate racing in the rain. Over the years, I’ve gained a bit of experience in the wet (it rains a lot in Ireland) and I’ve managed to dial in the setup on the M3. Even with the supercharger, it is very predictable – a really nice forgiving car to drive.
We took in a trabant tour while in Berlin. It was brilliant – really enjoyable. I have a little tradition whereby I try to drive in every country I visit. So far, apart from Austria and the US (I was not of driving age at the time), I have managed to do it! I’ve even managed to drive in the exclusion zone around Chernobyl… but more on that again!
I had one of these back in 1998. Absolutely loved it. Mine was stolen back in 2001 and I was heartbroken after it! I finally found one for a reasonable price on ebay in 2016… a size larger than I would like, but it’s still a fab bike.
