    Hey, I've been having battery/charging issues ever since I got my DL1000 last year.

  8. DL1000 from 2002-2012
    About 2/3 of the way through a 10 hour trip I hit a serious traffic jam. Cars were backed up for about 12 miles. I killed the engine so the bike wouldn't overheat. Then the bike wouldn't start.
