Rejection letter?? Was there a cut off for times or something?? Thought your running history would’ve been plenty good enough for that marathon!!

Its a ballot entry. There are something like 300,000 entries for 25,000 places.

A couple of small LED sensor lights for the house. I get the impression from the layout of the electrics that the floorplans for the house were altered but no one told the sparks. We've got some strange placements for lights and their switches.

I need some lights in a couple of places but I suspect getting a sparkie to fit lights and switches will be too much of a pain in the ass. This is a cheaper and simpler solution.

A kick starter rubber grip for the GB400.

I actually meant to order a gear lever rubber grip (facepalm)

So now I’ve ordered one of those.. and a fuel cock overhaul kit

@Cav - best book a day off on Monday right now if you haven’t already! (rock)

@ Kwacky, Best make sure the bikes not idling when you test that, it’ll stall the engine. (lol)
