    Lol!

    Yeah, unfortunately I fat-fingered the title, and it won't let me correct it...

    But, it's correct; it was raining all day today - and they're predicting possibly up to 2 inches of snow by tomorrow...

    Thanks!

    Thanks for the suggestion - it did not even occur to me to test the battery... I did, and on the battery tender it shows slightly over 13V. I hit the starter and it goes down to about 6.6V.

    I let...

    GS Dead - Electrical?

    Today, the 'Hornet' ('07 R1200GS) gave me grief...

  16. My $0.02

    I have Metzler Tourances on my new one (~8000 miles since late March), and the back tire looks like it won't make it past the 12,000 mile service. Had Michelin Anakees on my 2005 1200GS, and I got...
