    New BMW Battery?

    Saw a new R1150RT was being prep'd for delivery. Left side tupperware and the seat was off. The battery had an auxiliary positive terminal in the center of the battery and about an inch and half down from the top. This lug is used to jump start/ charge the battery. To access it all you have to do is pull the front seat.

    Maybe it is so you can run 6 volt accessories.

    Hmm. Maybe you are due a small refund?

    If you insist on exercising a right to burn our flag, first be so kind as to wrap yourself in it and then douse yourself with gasoline just before you strike the match.
