  2. Bump staring an AT

    Africa Twin
    Bump Starting that is...... I've never needed to bumpstart the beast but I've tried it a couple of times to see how easy/hard it was. I found it impossible. I once rolled down a hill with it and tried but also no luck. One day I might have to. Has anyone done this successfully?
