Last week my truck's alternator died down in Colorado Springs. A friend came and we got the battery juiced up enough to get me back to Castle Rock, but I would be without a truck for a few days while I ordered the alternator, installed it, etc.



So, with God smiling down on me by allowing the alternator to go while we had a brief period of not only warmer weather, but veritable riding weather, I looked over at T-dub. I hadn't taken her out of winter hibernation yet, but I woke the poor girl up and determined her battery needed a little juice.



After a few minutes of quick charging I started her up and took her for a spin around the neighborhood to check brakes, etc. Good as when I set her in for winter!



So, for 2 days T-dub got to play the heroine in the story while my truck played the part of the villain. It was just enough to get the riding bug back and now I can't wait for warmer weather.



Now to install the kick-starter and the XT350 tank before I really need them!

My TW came to the rescue yesterday when a friend's 96 CR125 wouldn't start while we were a couple miles from home. I rode back to his place and picked up a tow strap, then rode back to him and towed him on his bike with the TW! We got some funny looks as I'm 220ish and he's damn near 300 himself...

At least no one had to push their bike home. Even a couple of miles would be horrible.
