first ride of the year (A BUST!!!!)

Went for a ride from Grand junction, Co. over the national monument to the Utah Colorado state line, then planed on going down to the Deloris river until....
I stoped for a minute tried starting the bike again and battery was dead. push started it then headed back. about 20minutes in and it just flat out died! after a bit of road side investigateing I found an exploded rectifier! DAAAAAAMMMMMITTTTT!!!!!!


Waited for 2 1/2hrs for my ride to get there. So I enjoyed a nice nap in the shade of my bike.

Well at least you had a bedroom with a view. Can't say that I have ever slept on the side of the road.

Just like a 30min Nap. But it WAS peaceful.

Intent is half the victory. And most of the time only the intent is in your control.

Not a bust at all. You had victory.
