Pretty sure I've been down some of those roads and over that water crossing, but HighFive swore me to secrecy. The Talimena scenic byway reminded me a lot of Skyline Drive however.

That would be the Ouichita National Forest.

I'm going to try to organize a group ride up there at some point.

Check out the north Texas dirt thread in regionals to be kept in the loop.

Oh I forgot about Skiered who has 50k+ on his WRX.
43,xxx miles. Its been a long cold winter, but roads should be clear enough for riding in a couple weeks...

Note to self, don't buy one of Meefzah's bikes. I wish I had taken my swingarm off for a regreasing more often, otherwise the bastard wouldn't be stuck so bad. Live and learn... fwiw it doesn't take all that long to do the maintenance, its just a bother to skip a nice day of riding weather and spend it wrenching. Maybe one day I'll get a garage...

Gorgeous shots. Where were they taken? I'd like to look it up on Google Maps. I'm headed down to a cousin's place in Austin in May, and I'd love to start building a tic list of places twixt here and there.

+1 When I'm working on my bike time just flies. Throw on some tunes, can't think of many better ways to spend the day.

sounds about it.
They look like seat bolts to me. That said, I had lots of nuts bolts and random doohickies after doing all that stuff. I've come to not worry about it, I just check for what needs to be buttoned down and don't sweat it.

what do I do here so I don't throw a code? I don't want to spend $50 on some module.

Thanks.
Unless you know how to fab one up, yeah. You could just disconnect the cables and leave it in place too.

Hmm. Kind of out of the way on the way to Austin, but maybe after.

What size bolts are they? 10mm, rear fender bolts. 8mm, they're something else. Too short to be seat bolts.

This is where I get confused.. should I removed the electrical connectors? Or just those two wired cables going to the valve? You just leave the cables hanging there? Won't that throw a code?

I'm looking to run my iPhone as a GPS once in a while on my WR, picked up a nice little mouning case, etc. I plan to run an SAE => cigarrette plug from the Battery Tender lead to the front, where I can plug in a phone car charger to keep the phone juiced.

My question is: the phone charger will basically be plugged directly into the battery. Is that OK for the phone? Should I look at putting a fuse in line? Any other issues? I don't want to fry my phone.
