    That sounds like a right good laugh. Very Happy Go for it!... Very Happy
    I have these heated trips there great.

    Fiting is easy & you use standard grips, so they feel the same.
    I wear mx gloves in the snow with these.

    Maybe worth a look at helmet torches, that way you can see where your riding & not where your handle bars are pointing.
    You can get mountain bike head lights, which are bright & can easy be adapted
    to clip on & off your peak.
    Check on battery life to make sure you have spares for that avent tho! Very Happy

    Its a right buzz flat out through lanes in the dark.

    I think it looks like old duffers chugging along lanes in the dark on some slightly random old bikes.
    I've never done one, but i think the challenge is actually getting there more than anything else

    Not sure loons roaring around on WR 450's shouting ''power, power, power'' would quite fit in with the ethos Very Happy
    One way to find out though. Team SWTR????

    Ps. will look at those heated grips - i might even consider some of those huge handlebar muff things favoured by MZ/Superdream owners, and look a proper twat if it meant not having freezing paws all night Very Happy Very Happy

    Yes, a bit weird isn't it?
    Imagine how pissed off you could get watching blokes in Morris Marinas etc go past drinking tea with thier heaters flat out!
    Maybe thats the challenge - not cracking and punching the git's Very Happy

    Thanks for the offer, but I hadn't even thought of how you manage to stay awake all night - but it being done via a loon on a WR 450 is giving me nightmares already Very Happy

    This sounds a more and more stupid all the time!

    I have a better idea.
    No need for extra lights
    No need for heated grips
    We keep Geraint happy.
    We all chip in and do it in one of these
