Awe you speak to soon, they just put a Tesla charging center here in our big town of 10,000. Guess were between Boise and Portland so it works, Have seen cars there many times charging those thing are wicked fast too!! Seen a Tesla Semi truck as well charging, then seen it go get its trailer and hit the road, just a slight hum as it went by. I cant help but wonder how they do on the ice and snow. Worked in the garage a bit today, putting a Shadow 600 back together from sitting 3 years, wont fire and I feel like Im chasing my tail at times. All the dang safety features are crazy, clutch and kickstand. Got it all bypassed still wont fire going to check a little wiring since coils test good but seems to point to the CDI. Going to rule everything out then guess if need be I'll buy one, since my buddy says he can still get them.
Got to change the battery in the wifes car tomorrow too, cold weather killed it finally but it lasted 5 years to me thats good for a factory battery. Am still amazed at the new OBII reader I bought showed the Battery the charging system the drain of the starter all real time and freeze framed it for me. Best 100.00 bucks Ive spent in a long time (used) fixed my truck as well since it wouldnt throw a code I had to check each coil via the reader and it gives a % of misfires per cylinder. Sure isnt like the old days! Been working and teaching my son to be son in law how to do simple things (proposed today), after my blessing. Glad some things are not lost in this new world we are becoming!
Its always been Mind over Matter. I dont Mind You dont matter.
