Setting the Alarm When Touring
« on: 11 July, 2012, 12:31:59 AM »
Guys,

Sort of a warning really. Just got back from a tour over to Germany and back via France (La Rochelle & St Nazaire) which included two nights in Friedrichshafen. A great little hotel including a secure garage for the three bikes right next to the railway line.

An early morning start turned into a lunch time get away. The alarm/immobiliser wouldn't disable and after a whole load of messing about I realised that the battery was flat. I surmised that the auto-set to tremble mode had dumped a bit of battery every time a train went past until it was flat. I now recall seeing this same problem here before. A trusting local bike shop loaned me a spare battery and a set of jump leads plus the mod to hold off the headlamp when the side stand is down did the trick.

It pissed with rain getting there, raining a bit while we were there and it pissed with rain on the way back into France. We also got drenched on the M25 today.

How do you hold the headlight off while the side stand is down?
