did another Oklahoma wuss night ride ... bad conditions for a battery... cold start at 30f ... full heated gear for about a 20 minute ride to a buddy's house.

parked outside while they welded up a motorcycle carrier.... 3 hours later it was 20f ... Earth-X ETX36C cranked over R80G/S at 20f degree with authority.... 20 minutes to home with full heated gear.

this is where one needs a battery with ample spare amp hours. 20 minutes with full heated suit is not long enough to charge battery back up to full. as alternator is doing good just keeping up with added overhead from heated suit, etc.

next morning ETX 36C had power to spare!!!
