The weather through the week was either heavy frost (car scraping) or light snow.
So I emailed Laguna to say if the weather didn't improve maybe postpone today's booking and re-arrange.
Jim emailed to say they would come and pick it up. Free of charge.
Pepé went this morning. Back this afternoon.
Test passed but an advisory on front tyre that's getting low. I know that it is getting near replacement time.

Good old Father Christmas left this under the tree and I have used it to secure Pepé against the bike thieves that infest our civilised society.
It is supposed to be difficult to cut through and carries the Sold Secure label.
Okay it won't stop the scum with a van and a team to lift the bike in, but it might deter the wanker that tries to ride it away. Or at least make them go and try someone else's bike instead.
I opted for yellow as it looks bright as a reminder it is fitted. The alternative was black like my Abus HB and the Oxford Chain I also use.
I let him warm up whilst I went and got togged up. . The air temperature according to my car was 2°C.
Once I set off I found I had an air gap around my back! My thermal technical shirt had ridden up leaving a gap. Luckily it didn't affect me too much on the ten mile ride to the Blue & White Café.
When I went out on New Year's Day I forgot to reset Trip 2 to keep a total of mileage. This time I did.
After breakfast and a chat I needed the jump to get Pepé going again. Once started he runs perfectly.
The run back was pretty gentle. The wet patches had dried out a bit and it felt safer on two wheels. It was no warmer though.
So total recorded Trip 2 mileage looks about 20 miles. I didn't check when I stashed him away in the garage.
Next week. The MoT.
