Ok, firstly it seems that I've fixed my new lil bike 'HH', the regulator/rectifier seems to be at fault, that is gone and a fresh-un is on the throne and the battery is currently being re-soaked with billions of atoms of energy. good.
Now the bad, Richard died this week, this is his Harley. Rest in peace dude. My respects go out to Mandy at his time.
