i normally store the bike in my heated shop with a battery trickle. This new battery really cranks. It may last the rest of my life!

by the way, it still is raining. The monsoons moved to the midwest.

I just pulled my dead battery and am installing another AGM. It is a little smaller but more cranking amps. Technology improved over the last few years. I did take to old battery and put it on a rejuvinator I build. I was amazed that that little circuit actually restored the old battery. This year was a bad year for me in batteries. We had minus 20F or colder for over 33 days and most of my old batteries that were not on a trickle froze.

Anyway, raining and cold here today, so just pushing a broom around the garage.
