    Keep my Kit and Bike on what I think they call "Battery Optimisers / Optimizers" they are on permanently and monitor the batteries condition and keep the battery in Optimal Condition and purportedly slow down or minimise any deterioration of the Battery. Yes as has been mentioned by Andi previously watch out for deals on Aldi and Lidl where there are normally 3 year warranties which benefit us all

    Jim Clark- Best Motor Racing Driver Ever!?

    "When I were a lad"......I regularly cycled to Brands to watch anything going on. The most thrilling races I watched were between Mike Hailwood and Giacamo Agostini. They were riding almost un rideable bikes, too much power for the frames, which twisted every which way. Those guys had steel balls....... I'm probably biased because I could then stand right at the side of the track & be deafened. I'd love to see Rossi race in person, he looks scary just on the TV. Bob when I were a LAD I was lucky enough to meet Mike Hailwood when he had just got off the Honda 250 6 that he rode on the IOM TT in 1967. I was with a couple of guys who worked next door to my place of work. They worked for Stanley Schofield SOUND STORIES and as I was on holiday on the IOM during Diamond Jubilee TT week they asked me to come with them with the Sound Recorder for them to make the LP's of the TT. I tried to shake hands with Mike and all he could offer me was his leather elbow, he showed me the palms of his hands that were covered in blisters as he explained when you open the throttle there is so much power all it can do is keep shaking its head ! ............ As Bob rightly says they had the steel balls and the hands to match ! He was also an absolute pleasure to watch Giacomo Agostini was also very very amiable too

    Vice The Type To Hold/clamp Metal Etc

    Yup agreed with Andi and anyone else who said buy another one. Collected it this afternoon and if I was clever enough I would put a picture on here. Its a " No3 Record Vice. " £20.00 on GUMTREE looks to be in reasonable condition too, will strip it out and clean it to make sure all is up to scratch ! Might never work AGAIN Thanks for all the WORDS OF WISDOME Steve
