I've stopped the bike, hit the kill switch and forgot to turn off the ignition three times in the last couple of months. I've caught it soon enough that the bike cranked slowly but did fire up. Until I did it again Saturday. I did it this time at the staging for a PGR mission. We were there awhile so she was dead by the time I got on to ride the mission. I caught a ride in a cage and afterward we jumped her and got her started. I was thankful that I killed the battery while in a group but embarrassed as you know what that I can't remember simple things anymore. Like TURN OFF THE IGNITION DUMMY. Anyone know of a fountain of youth? Oh yeah. The kicker. We staged in the state capital parking lot. While we were gone the road crews prepped the lot for the ice/snow we were supposed to get. So the bike had a nice film of salt dust all over her. That took a while to clean off. And the weather never got here anyway.
