    I remember seeing in some magazine something that you can carry with you that will start your bike when the battery is completely dead. I have seen these for cars but this one was specifically for motorcyles. Anyone have an idea what it is and where I can get it? Anyone used one? Thanks.

    Breeze mine is pretty much the same but it says CAA, works great. Will even get the bike home if it won't start or has a flat tire.

    If you're thinking about one of those magical things that plug into the cigarette lighter & start a vehicle...forget it. That's why you don't see them out on the market (didn't work). Also, unless you have a touring bike, you'd have to have a functional lighter.
