More disturbingly, the battery problem I had last night manifested itself again. The bike's maximum speed all-of-a-sudden changed from 45 to 30 km/h, and I was then slowly creeping my way to school. I am not sure what the problem is and if it was on account of the rain last night. I hope it is not a dead battery -- I should mention that I have two batteries in the bike. I don't want to shell out the money for a new one. I hope it is just a short in the system that can be repaired.
One thing is for sure; one battery doesn't have any juice. When I arrived at the school, I flipped a switch which I presume is for switching the primary battery source for the bike. Doing that, the bike had no power. So I switched it back.
I don't think I will be able to see a repairman till Monday. I work all day Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.
I will have to take the bike home tonight to get it to the repairman whose shop is near our apartment. The trip could be perilous. I may be doing some pushing.
