How far could I go with no charging system?
My bike is currently dead on the side of the road in a remote location (halfway up to Mt. Baker in Washington). The charging system is pretty clearly broken (I jump-started it earlier, but then foolishly drove it up towards my camp site, hoping to retrieve some camping gear).
I'm staying with friends who will help me, but don't have capacity to haul the bike. One possibility is to pull the battery, charge it, put it back in, and ride the bike to where I could get repairs. But I have no idea how far I could expect to get on a bike with no functional charging system. Do any of you know?
I should add that the battery is only nine months old, so I am pretty confident that there's something else wrong.
Will someone please tell my lower back that I'm 'Junior'?
