Saturday dawned with the promise of a near-60 degree (F) day and a short HONEYDO list. For kicks, I rolled my bike out of the garage to fire it up, only to find that the old battery, which had been on a traditional tender, was DEAD. Morte. Finito. Unreal. The dang charger had been glowing green at me for the past 4 months or more. So much for old technology! Now to pull that dead weight out of the bike. If you’ve ever tried to finagle an old, heavy battery out of a battery box with just your fingertips, you’ll appreciate how much fun I had. With the old battery out of the way, the new unit slipped easily into place.
