If anyone sees any two piece leather bargains about could you let me know. My 14 year old Triumph (Alpinestars) leathers appear to have shrunk due to lack of use during lockdown.

Had a message from Halfrauds to say my battery was in store for collection.
Arrived to collect it & was presented with a sealed Yuasa box :)
Then I noticed a label stating "ready to fit, no acid inside this box" :^
I asked the assistant "Joe" to cut the seal for me & sure enough, no acid ampoule & the capping tray had been installed. :@
I pointed out that this was "Not a new battery, as it has clearly been opened because the space where the acid would be is empty & it has been activated".
He replied; "that is brand new, we only get them from Yuasa like that and never with the acid separate" :?

Rather disappointed, to say the least. :(

Spoilsports.. It does have a lovely "citric tang"

Fwiw it will probably be those scumbag scooter muggers that are behind it.
Would be more appropriate to make the twunts self-inflict with their weapon of choice, rather than disrupt everyone with this legislation. it would also possibly be a more effective deterrent, imo.
