Hi there! After work I started my bike(2002 Triumph TT600 22000miles) today and as I switched headlight on - bike died. Same happened day before. It was hard to restart it. Starter was spining but like vague to start. Switched headlighs on- and bike died again. But after I went home ok. Switched lights after some riding and it was ok. Any idea what could cause it?I keep my bike outside. Could it be battery? Thanks

Yes i would suspect the battery being in a low state of charge more so this cold weather.
How old is the battery and do you have a multimeter?
Sounds like a dying battery. Get your hands on a mult-meter and check your electrical system.
Look at the battery and the alternator as well closly linked but overlooked.
