Bike is Getting Fixed again

So I took my bike to the shop this morning rather than just buying a new battery so I can get my brakes looked at as well as to make sure the KIPASS system is still ok. While there it was pointed out that both my tires are at a point where they should be replaced. 

So here's the things that are being replaced right now.

  • new Bridgestone Battleaxe BT-023 tires
  • Yuasa Battery
  • OEM Break Pads 

I'm also having the dongle installed from a new Battery Tender, that was $39.00.

Motorcycle Battery woes

This weekend I went into my garage and checked the battery on my motorcycle, knowing that it would be low because I have not ridden it in a while. Several reasons that I haven't ridden include the fact that the office at work is STILL being renovated, the weather has been very wet here in Northern California and I don't have anyone close by to ride with.

So when I go in there, I press the key in, and turn the ignition on, flip through the dash computer to the battery status page and note that the batter is sitting at about 8.4v.
