    I know, I know, it's something you guys do in your sleep. But I thought I'd post a few pictures of how I made use of the extra terminal cable from my BMW battery charger. I would have thrown this adapter away before I got the scooter. I'm glad I didn't. Tucks under the elastic battery band. Has its own nifty little protective cap. Plug it in, charge, good to go.
