Glad you are enjoying your bike!
I just read your whole ride report. Good thing I didn't have anything important to do tonight. Really good stuff. I'm glad to see that the Striple is a bike that can hold up for many 10's of thousands of miles. When are you going to finish the report?

A few pics of your relay install would be really helpful. I'm pretty mechanical, but I don't know much about electronics so I have been holding off on doing this job. I do have a soldering iron and have experience using that. Did you also install an accessory socket? I have a powerlet socket to install, but that item came with a pretty good plug and play setup. Looking forward to any tech support you can provide (and also the end of your report).

Cheers,
Julia

P.S. almost forgot....was that a ventura rack you had your Pelican mounted to? I'm wondering what became of the rack after the ride. I have heard of a few of the arms breaking and that ventura is pretty good about replacing them if that problem occurs. I'll have to keep an eye on mine.
