The Daily Duh

You'd think I would remember this sort of thing after 10 years in the saddle, but it's been a few years, so here's today's "duh" moment - don't ever jump-start a motorcycle from a running car. Damn. Killed the battery AND the regulator/rectifier, which is a PITA to change out.

Bikes are still 6v right?

Why not just push/jog start the thing? :)

Heh, yeah, the last time I looked at a bike some guy wanted to trade me a 1968 BMW (dual bicycle seat!) for a 1884 Ford Tempo... almost did it until it took him half an hour to get it started again :)
