Oh, and I also have a heated garage if you need a project headquarters.

Why do you have an electrical diagram from Larrys GS1200?

Going to IMS, transportation mode uncertain

Arenacross is ok but the track is so short it's like watching a toy train go around a Christmas Tree, take your ear plugs.

That's most peoples mistake, a Dual Sport isn't a race and the speeds some people attain on the connector roads can be downright retarded. Anyone can go fast on a gravel road, save them for sucking down a drink or snack as you tool along then when you hit the trail, go as fast as you want where the speeds are lower. A typical DS ride will have some Joe Rocket smoke past me just as we get to the woods then become a rolling road block.

Riding on broken bones is tough and it hurts, I hope to never have to do that again, twice was enough.

I can't believe no one commented on the "take shirt off while wiring this part" part... Slipping folks, slipping…

Speaking of headlights Mark, I never did find anything in the O.R.C. that dissuaded me from running my helmet lights. I've never had a bit of trouble (knock on wood) from law enforcement either.
