Thanks, that's great information. Am I right in thinking that anything over 13V is going to give at least a small charge to the battery?

Also, was your headlight on low or high?

I heard 6 inches on Paradise Divide, much lower than Pearl. People are XC skiing on Kebler. Probably not advisable to try Pearl, but I think that's true 365 days a year so take it for what it's worth.

Brake Pedal Adjustment?

I read somewhere, maybe in the service manual, that you can't adjust the height of the brake pedal. My wife would like to have it a bit power in relation to the peg. Can this be done?
