So, I go out to the garage today to see if I can get old faithful fired up. It's been sitting since I broke my leg on it Sep 15th. I turn on the petcock, pull the choke, and give the throttle about 6 whacks. Hit the starter button, and the battery is so low on charge, the bike cranks over about 3 seconds, and BLAM fires right up.:p

This bike has been beat into the ground ever since I got it, and it will not die. Can't say the same about my other bikes.:ride:

Did you start it without the forks/shock installed? That would be just cruel..., starting it while it's suffering in pieces.:p
