That's never happened before. It cranked hard and started, but died soon as I let the clutch out. Did this twice. The dome light seemed dim also. My guess is it stems from the zero degree temps all night. Seems to run alright now.

Likely just cold fluids and friction of a cold clutch. By "started hard" do you mean it took a bit more than normal to crank? More of a let's see if it happens again scenario. If the battery is old it may be on the way out, cold temps rob the battery of cranking amps. Keep an eye on it and remember, driving does not charge a battery it only maintains the charge.

Keep us posted.

I have had the same here with both my Fozzy and F150 when we had sub zero temps for days and they were out side for a length of time.
