It was 25 degrees outside today, but I had to rearrange the garage so the Bonnie was out. I decided I'd start her up to put her back (it had been about three weeks), but she wouldn't fire after her three hours or so on the driveway in the sun. I could get about three, maybe four pops, then she'd die. Full choke, idle left where it was last time I rode. I keep my bikes on Battery Tenders, so I had plenty of juice there. Smelled gas, and I had to be getting spark to get those few pops. Any thoughts why she won't go? :???:

Got her to fire today. I think it was basically just cobwebs (that's technical talk!) needing to be blown out. Once she started and settle in without choke, I adjusted the idle and shut her down. Refire was a snap. I won't let her go dormant and unattended so long again.
