1st Ride on the SPR!!!

was a bust!! Here I am somewhere in Michigan all by myself because everyone I was going to ride with the next day were at work. I called my sister and wife, who were of course shopping, to bring some jumper cables.


A ride I will never forget..........by the way, has this happened to anyone else? any ideas on what could have caused this?

I'm going to buy a dual charger and sell the single one I have for the Brutale. I ended up buying a new battery because the old one charged all night and it still didn't have enough juice to start the bike.

The weekend kept getting worse because my brother-in-law was side swipped by a mini-van when he went to get his bike from his parents house Luckily he was o.k., but he ended up not riding, so it was only me and a buddy on his '08 R1.

What a different ride from the Brutale!! Night and Day!!! Can't wait for it to show up here in Cali later this week.

Congrats on the new bike, I knew you were excited about it. Can't wait to see it in Cali.

I was thinking old battery, plus you don't know the age of it.

Glad to hear your brother-in-law is safe...Accidents and never good for a rider

Awesome Darkside.
SPR demands the ultimate respect from fellow bikers.....instant street cred, wonderful bike...

One of the best F4's ever produced.
I was lucky enough to ride one at the track...a wonderful experience.
