Zenbike I just had a mess of charging issues. Finally got them sorted out. Look under "help I have gone through 3 alternators" Thread. The folks were great in helping me get it sorted out.

Cheers!!

Dave,
I'm really sorry to read about your mishap. You're a smart rider for wearing the proper gear, and it aparently paid off. I really hope you can get the bike back together. I hate reading about any bike going down. But the 955 Sprints are special to me.

Good luck,

---Charlie

Sometimes when it's really hot out I'll skip the armored overpants on my commute. Now I'll think twice about that now thanks to Dave.

My work here is done (limps off into sunset, as heroic music swells in the background...)
