The Motobrick Workshop / Re: Good Batteries to buy???
« Last post by stokester on October 19, 2020, 07:38:09 PM »
I like the Odyssey PC680 I bought for my K75. 

Avoid cheap Chinese AGM batteries like the plague.  They will die on you without notice at the least opportune time (Ha, like there is an opportune time for a battery to die come to think of it).  Ask me how I know.

I likewise use Odyssey batteries in my bricks and my airheads.  Yes they are pricey but I managed to get eight years out my last one.

All my bikes are on battery tenders throughout the year which I believe has added years to the life of previous Panasonic and Westco batteries.

Won a bet once that a Combi is basically the same length as a Beetle, the same chassis, with the same wheel base. Anyone wanna bet?

Had a '66 Westphalia in the 70's.  Super fun to drive, but was the definition of underpowered.  Just had to kick back and light up a cigarette at the start of every hill.  There were hills I had to avoid because I ran out of first gear before the top.

Don't see many buses anymore, fewer campers.  Way back had a Combi, it was perfect, could put the dogs in the backseat and firewood in the bed.  Being retired Covid hasn't effected us too much, doing lots of bicycling.

Well done Soggz, can be piloted from motorbike or hack, smartly done. ;)
We're going about a normal routine here in Montana, albeit having to put on mandatory masks in public establishments.
Cheers

Aye Soggz

We just got to sit this bloody virus out.

A boxer in a car beside a horizontal inline bike,  don't see that often.

Have wondered a bit about the story behind a name like Soggz?

How do you know rbm?
Dave, I thought you'd never ask!  Actually went out and bought some cheap $70 KMG-branded battery from a notoriously shady motorcycle aftermarket place and, don't ya know, after 1 lousy year and a bit the thing just crapped out.  Motorcycle stalled in the middle of the ride home from work and wouldn't even turn over.  Ten volts on the terminals when standing.  Luckily, it wasn't far from BocutterEd's place so he helped me push it to his garage where it stayed until I could get a new battery installed.

How long did it last?
Like I said 1 year and  a bit.  With good maintenance and winterizing practices observed also.
