With my reoccurring optical syndrome flareing up today, I was finally able to find time to go for a ride. It has been several months since Fugly has been given any attention and naturally balked when I pushed the magic button. Yep, dead battery. No problem, two kicks and she ROARED to life. Thanks Brian. The battery can charge while I ride. 30 miles into my ride and decide to take a break and look around a bit. Push the magic button once again and nuttin, not even a a low dim bulb. The battery is a goner. A kick and we are back in business. Thanks again Brian. In my younger days I probably would have continued on my trek into the back country, but the more mature me decided to head for the moto shop for a new battery. Lucky for me they had one. I installed it in the parking lot and enjoyed my ride home, the long way. 90 almost relaxing miles and my reoccurring optical syndrome has now been properly treated.
