The Beating A Dead Horse Thread

Do you want to beat a dead horse? I sure like to every once in a while. So here is a thread for doing just that.




Wear your helmet

Get a battery tender/optimate3


So feel free to flog away. Those are my two personal favorites.

If you ain't with us, then it's just bad news.
