    dead friggin' battery


    Went to jump on the bike this morning and after not riding it for three weeks or so the battery is dead. Can I jump it off my truck with a regular set of cables or do I need to hook it up to a charger for a while? Since I was strapped for time now I'm just strolling around in my A-star boots.

    It's all water under the bridge, and we do enter the next round-robin. Am I wrong?

    Hey I have an idea. Why don't you hook it up to my battery charger you borrowed. Oh that's right you backed over it and smashed it to pieces.

    Hook it up to your truck with some cables and you'll be fine.

    My brother backed over Vin's battery charger that you found in Vin's garage. And I gave you two high end amps for that rusted peice of crap. Maybe I could have jumped the bike with the juice from that alpine V12.

    why do you think I didn't have time to change my boots was sweating my nuts off. I pushed the thing all the way down my street and back and all that happened was the battery died more. Why don't you come push and bump start it for me Mr. Stamina.

    I just want a beer

    Actually it was Brian's friend Stevie dad's charger that I borrowed that I gave to you to borrow that your brother backed over.

    Get it right. Either way I acquired it from someone and therefore it became mine.

    Jump start that bitch with your truck.

    I hope you all are smart enough to not have the truck running when you jump the bike. There is too much juice when the truck is running and could possibly blow up the bikes battery while trying this approach! But you knew that right????

    Did you ever get her going?

    yup, it's all set. Left the truck off when I jumped it.
