tomorrow, I am trading the smurf (similar photo below) for a new (to me) bike.

so, tonight at 7PM, I went into the garage to make sure it started and ran....aaannnddddd it didnt.


cue 3 hours of running around like a chicken with its head off trying to diagnose it. was it solenoid? started switch corroded? burnt wire? WTF?!!?

end result: it was the battery that was totally and utterly FUCKED. it held the voltage, but held no charge.

Bought a new battery to go with the bike. crisis averted!

Also, wait until you guys see what Iā€™m picking up next ;)
