Oh so sick!

Posted on

So, long story short, Raven is in the shop right now with a burnt starter solenoid.  While not 100% sure on the cause, I have a good idea the starter switch got stuck on.  It is the only thing I can think of that would have done that to a 6 month old motorcycle.  On the bad side, I wasted a free afternoon stuck on the side of the road waiting for a tow truck to haul her to the shop.  On the good side, she will be fixed and well again and the recall replacement of the dash is completed.  Frustrating, but better it happened in town rather than somewhere in the depths of the back roads of the state.  I am still waiting on the call to go pick her up, but they are only waiting on the parts, so it should be any day now.  I am hoping it will be before next Thursday, when I have her scheduled for a new front tire.  At least it is under warranty.
