Sorry you didn't make it KJ.

However arriving in a submarine on Saturday would have been more appropriate as transportation.

Batteries can do that sometimes.

What bike is it? CBR? Early one?

Refit later reg-rec from one of the MOSFET equipped 05> (big IIRC caveat there) CBR-RRs or something rather than the early ones as they're just the same weakness.

That is just my guess anyway.

Sorry you didn't make it KJ, specially after that last minute decision.

And shame about your oil leak as well Tony
You were both missed xx
