I called BMW and they said my battery probably imploded. Short story, bike was dead....
Some pics of the long walk into a lonely night...
A scene no one likes to see. The long ride home with a dead bike in the back of the truck.
And the recovery ride.... all is well so far...
Old mill known the "Packard Saw Mill" in the TV series known as "Twin Peaks".
A forest service road the runs out and into the Alpine Lakes Wilderness. Shortly before I encountered snow and had to turn around.
We'll see if the battery holds out.
