The man flu is still keeping me down, but I got around to installing the battery tender plug & charge indicator. The idea is that I can see the condition of the battery at a glance and keep the battery charged during the winter without the need to attach cables to the battery or open any panels to access the battery.
I had some trouble finding a good spot for the plug, but finally settled in placing on a small crevice between the rear plastic panel and tool box. It’s now neatly out of the way and I can see it easily when approaching the bike.
I though about running the wires so that I could mount the plug on the dash as I did on my 660 Tenere, but gave up on that idea. No need for constant battery monitoring as this is a Honda.
