I just talked to RenoB and he thinks his charging system is shot........Batt is only 2 weeks old. I think his girlfriend is going to pick him up with the truck. If not he has Foxedupone's number.

I lost power in Gordonsville last spring. Turned out it was as simple as the battery terminal connections being loose. Might be worth a look-see...

Well I'm home. Italian Stallion is in the barn.

I stopped for gas on the way to the SMIB RTE. I shut the bike off, filled up, grabbed a Gatorade (last night was a little too much fun) and suited back up. The bike wouldnt even turn over. Pulled the plastics and the fuel tank. Got a jump from a nice guy who was there getting coffee. Bike roars to life and the voltage meter is slowly rising. We shake hands and the guy leaves. The bike i idling ad i start reinstalling plastics. Then the instrument cluster starts acting up! Lights, speedometer (it was reading 200mph at one point) and the odometer was counting up. Then the bike shuts down. I say F it and call my brother. We get the bike home. I hooked up the charger and it indicated the battery was healthy, just low on juice. Not sure why it caused the instrument cluster to go crazy but I'm gonna let it charge up and see what happens. Thanks for the advise and PMs from everyone. I guess I did RTE but a Blimpie sub was not what I had planned!

Too cold?

So while everyone is complaining about the temperature, I thought it'd be cool to ride 107 miles back from Hancock MD with this beauty.










Yeah, that dude next to me has an awesome paint job. Picked up a 2006 SV650S with 15k on the clock. I had an 03' SV650S in high school, it was my favorite bike and still is.

CAN I STILL ADVENTURE!?
