My battery warning light has started flashing on start up, so I figure I need to get a charger. 8o

Has anyone used one of the solar powered ones?

I don't have power in the garage so would this would be a good option - if it works.

I was looking into this as I have the same problem. There was a thread on here a few weeks ago.

You could pick up a small solar battery conditioning unit in Maplins at £9.99 (discounted at the time by £5)

I duly went to Maplins, however when I spoke to the store assistants there, I was told that the unit was designed to be placed on the dashboard of a car so the rays would get it. Unfortunately it is not waterproof.

My idea was to connect it to my Optimate terminals and run a lead through a small hole on the side wall of my garage and just throw it on the roof, however as the nit is not waterproff I didn't want to waste a tenner on something that would fail in a rainstorm instead I bought a couple of bottles of wine and gave myself a hang over!

It sounds like you'll need to be running some armoured cable into that garage of yours real soon Phil.

Ooh be quiet!!!!!!!!

I had a hard day in the office and was just about to sack it for the day (well that's my excuse!)

The 'U' fell off the 'nit', but I have no Idea where the waterproff came from!

Talking of Borat, has anyone seen it yet?

A few American friends on another bike site have said that it is amazingly funny, even if he is taking the piss out of their gullability...now is that a word???8o

I bought an Oxford solar-panel battery charger today. All wired up now, so let's see it it works!

Hi Andy,

My Daughter went to see the film last week and was almost pi$$ing herself when she came home and was telling me about it.

I've seen a few trailer clips and it looked pretty funny to me.... but I'm a Borat fan anyway.

Re: Borat!

Yeah, I think I am going to be speaking to my neighbours and seeing if some of them fancy an evening out next weekend to see the film... should be a laugh (especially as I live in a Cul-de-Sac full of single and mostly unattached females!!!!!!!!!!)

Damn, Andy, I need to move to your neighborhood! ;)
My neighborhood has absolutely nothing to offer in that area of life :(

Re: Borat!

Hey Mark,

If all the ladies are single in your cul-de-sac, I think you should post the name of it on here, so when we are out riding our Nelli's (when they arent in the dealerships being fixed !!) we can knock on their doors and say - "Mark said if ever we were passing that you girls would always make us welcome an offer us a nice...........cuppa !!"

Re: Borat!

Hey, if you make it stateside, all the way to California, do let me know, I have plenty of room and bikes to ride. And hopefully in 2007 I'll be able to ride again, leg willing....
