VTX has been a little slower cranking than usual here lately. Went to crank it up this morning to ride it to work but it turned over too slow to start and the battery all but gave out. Put it on the charger on a slow charge and left it all day. Got home, put the battery back in and tried to crank it and it spun fast but quickly ran down again. Pulled it back out to see what kind of battery it was and saw the new date sticker on it, May 2007. Interstate motorcycle battery, well what do you know, 13½ years. Never put it on a maintainer in the winter and never had to charge it until now. I think Ill get another one.
