    Got to work after a rather chilly ride in at 2 degrees so had the heated grips on. Ordinarily, they auto turn off once the ignition is off, apparently not today. Came out of work this evening to see the 'battery saver' light flashing (ironic), turned key, Dead as a dodo .

    After 10 minutes of faffing managed to jump it off a workmates car, only to remember my first stop was going to be a petrol station as fuel light had come on on my way in and there's a petrol station near my work. Didn't fancy a mega short trip and risk it not starting again so had to ride like miss daisy to one on my way home.

    Lesson learnt, physically turn off the grips next time (used them plenty of times before without issue btw) and I now know that I can get just over 140 miles to a tank with a bit of squeaky bum time
