An idea to take the covers off Rhonda and head down to the local Argos store to spend some vouchers on bits failed in the extreme. Rhonda failed to start and I did not want to pester Ogri again, I decided I needed to buy my own Optimate battery charger. I also decided I needed it quick and drove to the nearest Halfords car accessory shop with no success and then to the nearest bikeshop I knew. Some 49 pounds later a charger was in my hands and within an hour the flat battery was on charge.
I did go to Argos to spend my 45 quid’s worth of gift vouchers but the item I wanted was out of stock so I came away with a miniature 12 volt tyre inflator which is small enough to fit under the seat and an Oxford first time tank bag. Total cost 39 pounds and I have a 10 pound gift voucher left. Total cost from scratch…
Bike £3024.1 Total spend £4214.09
The cost of electricity and inflation eh!
