Yep....Well rode it 300 miles sunday got home covered it up in the driveway. We've been over 100 degrees all week. Went out wednesday to crank it and nothing jumped it off the car battery it fired up so let it run awhile then put the charger on it. Went inside and ordered a new battery Its the stock battery so its 7 years old. Yesterday went out it cranked up so i adjusted the idle after it warmed up. Thought it was be okay for today left it on the charger last night. Got all ready to head out and its dead as a door nail. So its looks like this weekend will suck.

I was stationed at Port Who Needs Me from 1988 to 1991. I had a 1986 VF500F Interceptor. What an awesome bike for the canyons. Every chance I'd get I'd be riding down the PCH to Decker Canyon 23. Man I loved that piece. I had friends in Thousand Oaks I'd stop at for a quick soda or water, then head back down again and either repeat or find Mulholland, Malibu, Gorge, etc. North of Decker Canyon was Deer Creek south of Point Mugu NAS. Deer Creek was almost always vacant of traffic on a weekday afternoon. Heck, even Decker was mostly clear on weekends. The corners were too tight for car drivers. There were always hubcaps in the ditches along the shoulder. Its been so many years. Those roads were still relatively unpolluted with residential development. I've been told I'd never recognize them now. I still think about traveling down to find out. I can always watch facetube to see squids crashing their R6s around some corners.

I like that area a lot but i only go on weekdays. Too many tourist and idiots out there on the weekends.
