Drive your bus

Don't disrupt threads on the main boards - get it all out of your system here. Think of it as 'playtime'.

Agree 110% with this!

They don't like not being used as things seize up, sag etc. whereas regular occasional use I find keeps things more reliable generally.

In fact, I'm at work now and looking at my bus in the car park!
Drive it, love it, live it as they say :flower:

Managed to get 9200km on my bus this season (May-Oct). No dailydriving.
They are meant to be driven, not just standing at a display looking pretty.

OK who wants to drive my bus from Hungary to the UK? It has to be done in January but I'm in Dubai, there is no heating in the bus but you can always open the safaris if the windscreen gets misty or frosty for better vision :) The best trip is to drive it over the Alps (just a hint) :compress: Any interest?

:bigsmurf:

On a more serious note, it will be driven back to Hungary for sure once the work is done, by me - can't wait. Will try to match the dates with the Grossglockner Bullitreffen 2014 too, on my way back. Yeeeeeah!

I totally understand a resto / maintenance but once it's roadworthy just get out and use it ?

We have short summers and long winters

Get some road trips done. I was persuaded to do Hessich earlier this year and it's the best show ever !

Stop coming up with excuses and live your life.

You get one shot at this guys - live it !

Rant over
I have to disagree, it's my bus & I'll do as I please with it. :D

Oh, and it's my life so I'll live it how I want too. :D
