Jumping my bike from a car
Well I finally did it.... again....
I left the keys in the bike with the bike on. Good news - no one stole it. Bad news, the battery drained. I could only jump it from a nearby car since there was nothing nearby. It was only connected for perhaps 25 seconds (long enough to start it from zero).
I figure worst case it fried the battery although it starts fine. Anything I should look for in the electrical system that might be damaged?
