I'm still in "busted ass hold man" mode but I think I'm going to take a trip around the block a few times on the GS to see how it feels. I have to be careful, if I damage this repair I'm super fucked vs just fucked.

Awesome Seth, look forward to catching up with you.

I hear you Rick, heal up soon. the roads are not going anywhere. if you like, I will take that new ape out to make sure the gas in it does not go bad.

Should be in. Care if I show up on the GS? I might need the heated grips. :-D

stoked you can make it Shane.

Jim, if you want to ride the tonka truck bike, it is perfectly cool with me.

Could not push start it, but we were able to jump start it. I don't remember the name of the guy with the cables, but thanks. Going to take the battery and get it tested and buy a new one. Once I got home it started the bike several times.

Battery tested good, but not fully charged. I bought a new one anyway. It should have been fully charged by the time I got home. I'll have to keep an eye on the charging voltage on case there an issue there. It was holding at 14.2 the whole way home.

Bummer, I'm glad Dave had those "motorcycle" jumper cables. I need to add a set to my under seat tool stash.
