How did it go?

My bike is having a few renovations after 1,200 miles in driving rain to go to an old friends' 60th. Birthday party in the Dordogne. Kind of stupid thing you do for someone you've known over 2/3rds of your life.

Got a leak somewhere that's messing with the charging arrangements, the battery cover clips dislike me, and whereas I have no particular problem with cheapo Chinese electrics (specifically a phone charger), I wish I could find a reassuringly expensive one that just works without melting.

Oh, and did I mention cleaning off all the bloody French dung? <sigh...>
