Spotted the silver blue pointy from Felixstowe Solar superstore on it's way home yesterday too. Will try to make contact with the owner somehow.

Need an Org calling card.

Yup - I flattened my Blackbirds battery by starting it about 12 times with the lights on and not actually riding it anywhere (getting onto the IOM ferry) - afterwards I thought - that's a lot of engine for that little battery to be turning over!

I wouldn't worry - my Blackbirds battery was the original and that was 9 years old - it still worked fine (even after the IOM incident) so as long as its starts the bike easily and "sprightly" I wouldn't worry.

It might not be the battery, it might be a problem with my alarm or something else draining charge, but i've no idea how old the battery is, and the bike clocked up 35,000 miles at the weekend so i decided to replace it anyway (the battery, not the bike!).
At least this way, if i have any further problems i'll know i need to start looking elsewhere for the cause, or just have a good cry cos ive wasted 40 on a battery i didnt need
