I had to get something from the back of the garage and the bike was in the way. Moved the snowblower out and cleared a path in snow and rolled the bike out. Haven't started it since probably November sometime but I keep it on the battery tender. It started first time and purred like a kitten... a big kitten maybe. As it was sitting there idling some friends showed up, told them I was getting ready to go for a ride if they could help me balance to the road I would probably be fine. They actually believed me and told me that I was crazy! I got on and rode it 15 feet back into the garage then shut it off. Not a great ride but a ride non the less. I wish I had as much room in my garage as Anne Marie does.
