Ha ha...oh yes! Definitely generator light. I must be getting "some" charge,
but it's not full on. The light is dim when on, and sometimes flickers. To me

not charging

When I say died, I actually mean the battery (which is a fairly new Odyssey)

That's the right place!

Yes, you hit the right place! You have to sign up for the R80ST Rider's Group

I'll 3rd that!

Never have seen this kind of discount out of them.
Used to have a Fitzroy. That was one super duty piece of equipment.
High mountains, snow storms, and 60+ winds no problem. Plenty of
room too.
