Mine died once because the connector to the regulator came undone just enough to not charge the batt anymore. It's always fun when the power goes out and the bike dies while ridding on the freeway.

If you don't get in more riding this year, you'll be a year older next year.

We ran into this last year in Iowa and had to wait 2 hours for our guys ride to charge. Tried to push and pop the clutch but to no avail. Now I have cables. It makes sense to have the bike in 2nd gear. Never thought of that. This is a great thread.
