Sounds like the gps circuit has failed. I could be wrong, but I've had one spot gen2 unit fail similarly. Only solution was to replace it. Luckily it was still under warranty.

My HardFrisbeeChasingDog won't fit. He gets left behind when we're on 2 wheels. A sidecar would suit him just fine, I think. :D

Hey SFMCjohn,

Where'd the pooch come from? Doesn't look like a native of the Mendo NF, and I don't see a larryboy-style dog house on the back of your KLR. Ride in the saddlebag?
