I've been gone from ADV too long, and my beemer is probably missing me since I bought the Aprilia. I'm gonna have to tour the lowcountry again after the new year.
Careful with the Shorai that your bike isn't over charging the battery, bad things can happen
I made sure at 2500rpm that it wasn't putting out over 14.4v.
I put a Ballistic in my Ape and love it. Now that it's getting "colder" out, though I saw it was close to 80 the other day, I'll be back on the Beemer.
