Right but is it better to call it dead or to try and desperately find a 110 plug? Excuse me can I plug into your outside plug for an hour for $20? tcycpher you are in Seattle right?
your point is valid, 'specially if you have to sit at a 110v for an hour to just get 10%.Right but is it better to call it dead or to try and desperately find a 110 plug? Excuse me can I plug into your outside plug for an hour for $20? tcycpher you are in Seattle right?
I have "heard of" some tow trucks carrying DCF converting batteries around - but never seen any as it would be a considerable cost to support EVs.I wonder when the will have a truck mounted DC service? Basically the out of gas for electrics.
We should probably see what ones might work with our bikes. But again I am guess the computer will reject it for DC of any speed.I have "heard of" some tow trucks carrying DCF converting batteries around - but never seen any as it would be a considerable cost to support EVs.
That said, there are some EVs that can charge back (like they brought you a can of gas.)
I used my HDMC (HOG) membership to tow.How hard is it to get motorcycle towing? Seems like this is something I should understand. I wonder if this is included in my insurance.
I use a smart plug so when I plug it in, I know the bike charges roughly 10% an hour, so, if I'm at 36% when I get home, I set the smart plug to shut off automatically, 3-3.5hrs later, so I'm in the perfect zone 30%-70% SoC.because I'm not getting out of bed at 2:00 a.m. to disconnect the charger, and haven't figured out how to get it to automatically stop charging at 80%
I wish I would have remembered this one my 2500 mile tour - that $125 with 'Buddy' the tow man was a painful excursion I'm glad I renewed my membership recently
I purchased the lifetime membership, 'cause I do love Harley and well, the towing alone has saved me once and could easily do it again in my lifetime. it was an inexpensive investmentIts weird they said I got a year HOG membership but haven't seen anything since the purchase. I guess it has only been a month.
The link goes to a page that basically has nothing other than roadside assistance at the top. This link works better.Regarding Motorcycle towing: Join the American Motorcyclist Ass'n and get their roadside assistance. It covers ANY vehicle you own; motorcycle, car, or truck, AND you'll help protect your right to ride. There are many other perks to AMA memerbership including a lot of product and service discounts -- well worth the low cost IMO.
