WUSSUP?!

For anyone who may not know, THIS is what NOT to do with your battery after you disconnect it and remove it from your bike. Yes, earlier this week I fried my battery due to negligence and stupidity. So last Sunday, I finally put my bike away in my brothers heated garage for winter storage. I proceeded to remove the battery from my bike then carefully placed it in a cardboard box in which my new winter dust cover came in then placed it in my trunk of my car and left it there until today when I went and picked up my battery tender. As I opened the box, this is what I found...



Yes, I inadvertently fried my battery. I wasn't even thinking about it but at the time, I kind of just threw the tools in and forgot about it. As you can see, the metal extension for my socket wrench became fused when it made contact with both the negative and positive terminals. I actually had to lightly pry the socket extension from the battery terminals. I admit, that was thoughtless and stupid. I wasn't even thinking about it when I threw my tools in there(what a f**kin' moron I am!). I haven't taken my battery to any kind of shop to have it checked but I'm pretty sure it's completely fried now. This was the result....





Yeah, DON'T ever be a f**kin' moron like me and do that. It's not the end of the world but it's probably an $80 mistake that I'll most likely NEVER ever make again.

Well, it's in my Brother's heated garage...so I'm pretty sure he didn't want any kind of excessive wires hooked up. So now I have a tender and a fried battery...oh well.

They should sell some kind of running track machine that you could put your bike on during a winter. Than you could ride it every once in a while in a garage :D
