Good point. Yeah, still 20/50 dead dino juice. Next service will be
my 24K service and I was going to switch to synthetic at that time. I
think the synthetic is 15w50. Typical winter temps here (SF bay area)
are only in the 40s. Just happened to be quite cold Sunday morning.
Thread drift: I stayed plenty warm without electrics, thank you :-)
Yeah, I did use my heated grips.

Heh.... I've got the BMW charger that came with the K11LT I bought in '94.
It works just fine on the R1150RT. Also, the RT is my primary transportation.
It gets ridden enough that a low battery isn't typically an issue.
