Default What Happened???

My bike ran fine yesterday, but it sat overnight in the rain, (stupid me), now it won't do anything. The radio and light all work fine, but it will not even try to turn over. All the fuses are fine.
Any ideas???

Turn on the ignition and try to push start it. If it works, then there is an issue with the starter circuit, if it won't even pop, then I would guess your ignition switch went south.

Castile,

First, when you ask about an issue with your bike, PLEASE tell us what kind of bike it is.

It is also sometimes helpful if you mention what part of the world you are occupying. For instance, what is this 'hill' thing of which you speak?

Now, does the headlamp(s) go out when you hit the starter button?

Check the battery terminals. A loose connection may be your problem.

The radio works fine? Sure you're not "riding" a Fiat?
