Just change the battery, or look for gremlins?

A couple of months ago, rode my '03 1150RT a couple of hundred miles with several stops and starts, no problem; at the last stop 1/2 mile from home it would not restart...dead as a hammer, no...

Test rode the '15 RT & GS back to back today

Trying to decide whether to upgrade my '03 RT or switch to a GS; Bloodworth in Nashville had a demo available of each, so I spent 45min on each this morning.

I take Hwy 30 from McMinnville to Etowah

Several times each year, much better than I24; even 70S from M'boro to McMinnville isn't bad. Usually come home via I24.

Question Did I do something stupid, or just bad luck?

Granted, I'm not the sharpest tool in the shed when it comes to mechanical work, but I should be able to change the rear wheel on my '03 RT (51k). Read the repair manual, watched someone remove and...

Compatible with the Sena SMH10?

I thought the slider for the internal shield would prevent mounting a Sena, had about decided to go with a LaZer until I saw this thread. Love my 102, would prefer to stay with a Nolan.
