Had my 2008 RT out yesterday for the first time this season. Last rode it 12/18/11, home from the shop for its 18,000 mile service (at 16,686). Was on the trickle charger this winter, and had a full tank of brand new gas to start the trip. Started right up to leave, again at the gas station, again after a short destination stop 60 miles out and again after lunch. Then, 10 miles toward home, at about 70 mph, the engine just stopped. Battery still worked, would turn engine over but wouldn't catch and fire. Wouldn't jump start. Double checked battery cables, kill switch, kickstand and center stand, put it on a charger, and still could not get it to fire. I think I read a similar chain on here from a member on an LA freeway. As the tow truck guy said to me, "Well, you found the middle of nowhere." Computer/fuel sender failure? Thoughts or suggestions before I tow it back to the shop? Thanks.
