So yesterday I get the GT out to go for a ride with my son to Carmel for lunch. I get ready and go to start the bike...nothin. Dead battery. I charge it for a while and still only a small bit tries the starter. I've been expecting this. Its needed charging in excess lately.

So I ordered up a new Odessey. This one lasted for 5yrs 10mths and 41k miles. Not bad I guess.

I wouldn't complain after 5 years. Over charging will shorten the battery life. Here, in the American Siberian winters. I only hook mine up to the battery tender about once every 3-4 weeks and she has always had enough juice for those odd warm winter days good enough to get out. We had a short string of 60's this last Feb. Hope it happens again. I LOVE global warming. :snowlaff:
