Buddy of mine has a older bike and rode it out of state to visit family and doesn't have much fun on return trip.

Said his charging system started acting up and his battery went bad..So he bought a lawn mower battery and a cheap charger and strapped battery to passenger seat and would ride and charge..ride and charge....said he only had to do it three times on last 300-400 miles of trip???

I remember when my charging system quit on me outta town got a ride about 50 miles and got my truck.

But if it ever happens again.......:laugh

Any rode side hassle stories and how you dealt with them....:what?

On my old 89 883 I busted a chain while out on a back road. Most recently I busted a throttle cable while my daughter and I were on our way to church, we left the bike in a driveway and went on to services. After church I took the wife and kids home, got a few more tools together then went back. I swapped the throttle and idle cable at the grip and carborator.
Good one..I remember it now!!:)
