I just finished up finals and it has been weeks since I last rode my bike. We were gonna go hit the twisties today (as it is 60 degrees out and sunny). I have full gear on and some extra insulation incase I get cold, I put the key in the ignition and what do you know... The battery is dead....

I will take some of the blame because I haven't ridden the bike consistently for a couple of months. It will usually be two weeks that go by then I'll ride it for a couple hours and then another two weeks goes by. In addition to that I do have a PCIII, Scorpio alarm, and Speedo-healer connected directly to the battery. Sux for me. :( Well I hope someone gets to ride today and I will try not to count my blessings.

OK done ranting....

Might have to do that. Bike is only a year old. Kind of annoying.

Battery Tender is on my Xmas list. Thanks a lot guys. BTW, I think I am going to get a second battery anyway. Seems like the right thing to do.
