Subject:The bike is running
Time:12:11 pm
This morning I threw the freshly-charged battery back in the bike and then tried to start her up.

I got a few false starts (run for 2-3 seconds then die), and then she started up and kept running for a few minutes... until I turned her off and headed for work.

Yay! Happy bike. Now I get to change the oil, lube the chain, and take her out riding.

So was it really just the battery? I hope she provides years of enjoyment.

Nah, it was almost certainly also gunk in the fuel lines that got blown out enough to let her start.
