When a bike – or a car, for that matter – is older than 4 years, they have to go to a mandatory road worthiness inspection every two years.
If your vehicle is taken care of, i.e. keeping it serviced, there are rarely any problems.
So obviously, I didn’t expect any issues when taking the bike (aka Bertha) to the inspection.
Shortly after checking in, I was called forward and the bike just wouldn’t start. Sounded like a dead battery, but it had been charged overnight. Maybe the starter is toasted? The generator seemed to work fine, as there was no warning on the dash board.
Also, I had checked a few months back, with a voltmeter, that it had 14.4 volts when the engine running.
Anyway, it started eventually, and it passed the inspection without any issues.
At least it takes some years before I need to have Bucephalus inspected.
