Late for Work

It's been about 25 to 30 degrees in the morning so my wimpy ass has been driving to work. Theres a guy at work who rides his little Ninja 500 everyday and gives me crap about it. So last night I figure I'll man up and ride. I get all my gear on this morning (Takes a bit of time) lumber out to the garage feeling like that little kid in "Christmas Story" who cant put his arms down cuz he has too many clothes on...... The bike wont start because my keyfob battery is dead along with the spare one Moral of the story is don't leave home without spare batteries stashed on your bike. oh well the truck was warm

That's funny. Mine died at the same time too: at three years old to the month. It was almost like they were scheduled to die then.

I keep an extra in the plastic bag with my registration. So far I have always had to lend them to someone else who's fob battery died.

Mine same.

Both died when I stood my bike up in the garage - had to find Allen keys to pull cover to get @ main fuse to shut it up!

Can't you key in the PIN code to start it if your fob dies?

sent from my phone, expect bad grammer and typos.
