Beginning to think it was only me that was going mad with this issue, fine all year put the aux lights on, click ! 2010 America on its second battery, was thinking about getting one of those new fancy lithium batteries, heard they hold the charge a little better, any thoughts ?

Most major battery manufacturers make more than one type of battery for our use, basic(budget)-premium-super premium.
Okay, the results are as follows:
Ignition Off: 12.68 V
Ignition On (Lights): 12.20 V (Dropping to 12.14 V over 30 secs)
At Idle: 13.60 V
All of which looks okay to my untrained eye. I'll be carrying the multimeter around with me over the next few days to do spot checks dependent upon temperature, length of time the bike is left standing and should the dreaded 'click' occur.
(On the plus side we hit about -1 here last night which has usually been the sign to grab the jump leads, it groaned a little bit did start).
