Thank for Kick-Starts (Short story time.

Good Afternoon MH.

So my Father and I went for one last ride today before I head out to Piney Piney Point Maryland for Maritime training Monday, Was a nice 140 Mile ride from Tomball to New Ulm then back tracked to Brenham and Tomball. Anyway, So this morning I noticed my bike sounded a little weak when the electric start BARELY kicked over the engine, I thought little of--Hey engines cold, it's kind of coolish out what ever right? So we head out, stop over at the British Motorcycles owner's club rally they were having out there. Get back on the bike same thing but still started so I'm not concerned with it--Stop off in Brenham, Same thing only this time it sounds EVEN WEAKER but HEY it still started--SO THE FINAL stop we made at the Yellow Retriever Pub up in Magnolia, I come back to the bike, hit the start- DEAD, just a click--THANKFULLY I still have power to my Dash and lights so I know the battery wasn't totally dead, I freaked out for a second until my father kindly pointed out I have a kick-start.. I guess that slipped my mind at that little moment of panic. Kicked it once, Coughed--Second time, She fired right up and off we went. Guess when I get back from school I'll need to think about a new battery.
You've seen it!... You've heard it!... and you're still asking questions?
