There are two ways :?:

1. Put some coloured paper in the jars that you have been saving daylight in, and just let them glow - no more power needed.

2. Get some glow worms, and use them in the jars when the daylight savings run low. :lol: :lol:

Both of these solutions will overcome your power issue, but dont know about the other of legality. Is this lady a 'keeper'? If not, go to a flea market and trade her in. :twisted:

This whole thread is the silliest I have ever seen. Do you folks not realize that Christmas is lit up with luminaria? That is candles, in brown paper bags. So, get 50 candles and 50 brown paper bags, and 100 pounds of sand to hold the bags down and the candles upright, and decorate the bike with luminaria.... Hawwwwwww. And after Christmas, when all is said and done, and I am finished using the bridge that goes over that river in the middle of London, I will be willing to sell it to you....... :lol:

Come on you lot, the answer is obvious! Get online and start buying as many bits of chrome and lighted accessories for your bike as you can possibly find! She's given you a blank check!!!

Even better.....
- She wants to decorate your bike....so say "Honey, I love you very much. Obviously you really want a connection with this ride, so I am handing you the keys, you decorate it to your heart's content. By the way, it is now your bike."

Roll up the garage door and show the new shiny ride that you just rolled home....

Then scream.....LET'S RIDE!!!!!

Well, I suppose WingAdmins suggestion was probably safer than my luminaria scenario. Could have the entire house in flames with luminaria. Enjoy the bike decorating party, squirrel.

But you know - none of us ever asked if you keep your bike in the living room......... that might make a difference.

He is so compliant about putting lights on, he likes to see the colour of the oil when he does an oil change in the lounge :lol:
