after buying my 2004 out of the box in 2005 and putting 84200 miles on it i learned when it would not start that i needed a new battery. installed it in the dark holding a small flashlight in my mouth. bike runs well now... but don't know where i put the flashlight. a friend who knows me (and rides a harley) suggested that i might have swallowed it. hope not, but if i did it will become his christmas gift.
weather people are speaking of snow. guess the season is ending for us in the north.
regards and best wishes for all of you.
