Been riding regularly despite bitter cold. Lithium battery makes cold starts interesting - turn every thing on including all electric clothes/gloves and then wait five min. Goes against everything you grew up thinking about batteries.

Cold (I'm convinced) caused the center throttle return spring to unwind one turn. I'd already intentionally unwound it one years ago. Two turns are too many and so the throttle wouldn't close. Made for an interesting ride home! Took about five hours to get in far enough to rewind it.
