Took my S3 out today -- she had been sitting for a month or two. I recently got my XR650L and my KZ900 out of mothballs and have been riding and commuting on them and the FJR. Went to start the Buell a couple of days ago and the battery was completely dead. Mind you it is the original battery from 2000 -- but I usually keep it on the tender. Used the tender for a couple of days and she fired right up today. I gotta say the Buell is more fun the the other 3 combined -- I was feeling bad -- but in that "bad to the bone" kind of way. Maybe it's just that tubers are getting rarer but she drew a little crowd everywhere I went. Just thought I'd share the feeling with those that would appreciate it and those that might be frustrated with mechanical woes .. Keep wrenching it's worth every minute.
