It didn't rain but it was windy. I just leaned into the gusts and it was fun.
Just returned home after emptying a tank of gas. I feel so relieved of stress... And worked out cause I had to push the bike twice lol.

I'm sure Mala will post pics in some thread. I want to see those too!
YAY! So the wind wasn't a problem? Glad you guys made it safe.

Grats on the new ride! My first bike I rode home for an hour in the rain on the highway, it's all part of the experience. I was just so happy that I was riding my own new (old) bike that I didn't really care about the conditions.

If the battery is for sure the problem maybe, but probably not. The bike should generate enough power while riding to keep the battery charged (and the bike running) if the battery is ok. Otherwise the charging system may be having issues. A trickle charger can hide a problem with the charging system by topping off the battery after short rides. I had that happen on my old bike.

If it hasn't been checked already, have the battery checked out including making sure that the cells have the correct amount of distilled water if the battery isn't a sealed one.

Well I thought that driving the bike for an hour would charge it up pretty well, but it didn't seem to get charged. I'm going to get my multimeter tomorrow and see. I just hope its not the charging system.

Now this is interesting, the Factory Service Manual says that the battery is 12v 8AH. Mine is only 12/6

Dang, I feel really bad. The bike rode perfect for me the day you came and looked at it the first time. I really don't know why it died on you twice after you left. If there's anything I can do let me know. I didn't know it would do that :(

Nah it's cool. It's just a maintenance part. Things like that happen. Thanks for all the help though.

A multimeter will tell you the static voltage of the battery, but you should have it load tested by a shop to determine the overall health of the battery. Testing is usually free.
