The last time I was on the Notom Road, which was 2 years ago, it was in very good condition. It is flat and straight, and goes through a wash or two. My recollection is that there are more deep...

The Burr Trail (In SE Utah, BTW) is a good "starter" road for someone on a GS transitioning to dirt. It is mostly firm, and mostly straight, and mostly flat. I wouldn't try it if it has rained...

Check your fuses. Look in your manual for the fuse that deals with the RID. Pull the fuse and look at it very carefully. I had the same problem on my 1100RS, and the fuse had a hairline crack in...

Sorry, I've gotten beyond that stage. After numerous attempts at soldering, I trashed the thing. No numbers to be had. Trash day is Tuesday in my neighborhood. Thanks for the suggestions, though.

I actually tried that. When I plugged the unit in afterward, the left signal lights (front, rear, and panel) came on solid, even before the ignition was switched on! What's up with that?
