Its pretty discusting really as read earlier that the average tanker driver earns 45K pa + final salery pension  :o . Strike ! I would do it for less half that ....... but roll on empty roads for a C5 run and advertising.

Used the C5 to commute to work today for the first time.

Was pretty awesome, and beat most of the cars... took 10 minutes longer than usual and I went the wrong sodding way!

Agreed, but luckily most of my route is a bike path and I just went under the bridge instead of over.....

Agreed!. I'm currently making sure mines OK for the job after being locked away for most of the winter.

I'm also thinking of getting one of these to protect it against the elements:

I use something very similar to cover Goldfinger when transporting it on my trailer - works well  :)
