Re: Got a motorcycle?? We want pics!!
Sorry no new pictures, but been out putting some miles on the Guzzi the last few weeks. Just got the state safety inspection on friday so Im all good and legal! Funny that on friday morning as Im getting the bike out to go to the shop, I get all suited up, and hit the starter.... nothing... not even a click. So I tossed the charger on for a hour and got a click... but no turn. WHAAAA!!! Well another charge for a bit, and pull out the VOM and find my 12vt... is down to 9 after I try to start.. shes dead!!!! So now I go out and play the game of "try to explain to the counter guy what a moto guzzi is" To add to that... these bikes take two different size batteries.. one with, and one with out the evap canister. Canister in mounted in the battery box, and takes up half... Well all the listings show mine having the big one... and it doesn't. So not believing the one in it was correct.. I took over the computer terminal, and went through all the guzzi listings till i found one.. Found one for a newer model that was higher capacity then stock... but still the size that would fit.. OUCH $115 later and my new fancy AGM battery is in the bike.. [I guess the days of a $20 motorcycle battery are over huh? ] So off to the shop a few hours late, and passed with flying colors!! So im on the road! Ill get some pics when I get some time to go for a nice long ride.
