Well, I went to ride my Scoot work Thursday. I was all excited, had all my gear on, helmet, gloves. Briefcase stowed....
"Rrrrrr-Rrrrrr-Rrrrrr"....CRAP.... "Rrrrr-Rrrrr-Rrrrrr". No juice. We had already had nice long rides this year, we had been over 250 miles. Dead, just dead. I guess I was lucky, this was the 4th year on this battery (Note: I'm not usually good on batteries.) I never put them up for the winter. I don't put them on a trickle charge. Yes, I pay a premium for my laziness.
Oh well. Have the new battery, about to charge it and put it in.
On a much nicer note. I decided to also charge Stella's battery too since I couldn't get her to start either. Quickly found the problem. When your battery cable is tight, all is lovely.
