A safe delivery

Today saw the delivery of Paul's new toy, sorry I mean new piece of essential farm machinery - yes the new quad has arrived.

Spot on time the very nice man from Robson & Cowan arrived with our shiny new Honda ATV, complete with warming handle bars which will come in very handy next winter I can tell you!!!
Seeing as Paul was at work I thought I'd best take it for a quick spin, well I had to make sure it worked ok didn't I. I was thinking about taking it through a few muddy puddles or through the ford but then thought better of it, Paul wouldn't be impressed if I'd got it dirty before he'd even seen it.

I have a very long job list for the new bit of kit tomorrow so fingers crossed the sun will be shining and I can work out how to put it in reverse.

Love the warming handlebars Debbie - you'll never get off the bike! Can they be fitted to a wheelbarrow? Add a picnic to tomorrows chores.

Very nice.... but those rear mud flaps are a bit gay Paul!!!

Remove to keep street cred high ;o))

But Rob, it's Ferrari red, I've got a Ferrari key ring for it and a picture of the great Michael Schumacher to stick on the farings (I know you're one of his greatest fans!) - ok I know he's with Mercedes now and the quad is a Honda but who's counting - it's big, new and fast!

Warming handlebars! Never knew you could get them! What a fantastic idea!

Why would you want to locate reverse? That would be very dangerous!
