With it being a lovely mild dry day. I decided to go for a ride to Scarborough....

Got the bike turned round and facing in the right direction, got all me gear on (have you guessed what's coming yet?) and put the key in ignition, choke on and turned it on, pressed the start button and got a crack and a bang and then nothing. No lights on dash so played about for half an hour to find out that the battery is completely dead. Put battery on the charger and not a sign of life. I put the battery back on the bike and jumped it off the car battery and it fired up straight away.

Just ordered a new battery from flea bay but it wont be delivered while Thurs/ Friday so that has buggered my day up. Damn and blast. I keep looking out of the window at the lovely blue sky. mad mad mad mad mad mad

Probably a bit late now, but tayna-batteries on evil bay are great. Got a gel battery, brand spanking new for the Thunderace for 30 delivered. Can't go wrong with that!!
