I'll get on that, it seems to struggle to spin via the starter.

Solo in the Solitaro….40 miles from my campsite, in the most rugged part of the BBRSP.
Thank you so much...for rubbing it in!
Due to snow and ice up here, fondling bling blue parts is all the solace I get for now. Really nice pix HF!!

Great photos, nice story line, well done. You get any Banditos or get shaken down by the Border Patrol?...
Nikon D7000 w/ 10-24mm

I didn't haul it on my bike while backcountry recon into hostile territory, though I could. I have a Zac Speed chest protector with a large pack that can easily haul it. But, I just took Wheezer along for the ride (my little Cannon A590is). Had need to maintain...uhmmm...a defendable posture, you might say.

Didn't see any Banditos, though appear to have discovered one of their uber secret hideouts in the freaking middle of Nowhere:








You'd fit right in, Finn. They have a personal invitation extended….



I'm telling you, I could of hold up a week here if my bike had broke down.



Strange find to say the least. I could have used a beer!

You just can't imagine how remote this hide is unless you've been here.

I wrote in my AAR: "Further surveillance warranted....its recommended I return soon"

Its a dangerous place….terribly unpredictable and desolate. Temps ranged from 22 - 55 degrees during my mission. I was fortunate this time. I've been unfortunate other times. Very unfortunate! Lesser men have died.

Hey Cyborg,

I am getting ready to install my Squadron light and the Skene Design controller. I have the same bike, and was wondering if you could help speed up my wiring or is it pretty straight fwd. Thanks.

Xmoto, I did not (and won't) go into the wiring in my install thread. That would have taken a lot more work to document online and it's too late now, I didn't take pix of that. The wiring is pretty easy if you know electrical wiring well. The Skene dimmer comes with a simple schematic and it is also on their website. How you wire it depends on your switchgear.

Cool, things are looking good for me and I hopefully will be picking up the Husa tomorrow. Let me know if you're coming, though it shouldn't be hard to spot since we should have the only 70º bikes there in a sea of Orange.
I'm not into big group riding at all, but could be fun if we could go ride and get some dual Husaporn photos.

Looks like 3 long 3 short. Check your users manual should have an error code list. Page 77 in my manual " check the injection valve". " Malfunction in injection valve circuit cylinder 1". There is only 1 cylinder so not sure why they say that ;)

Makes sense. I searched my manual - I knew it was in there somewhere, but for the life of me, I couldn't find the codes. Thanks.

I replaced my OEM Yuassa battery right off the bat with a Shorai... I know there has been a lot of discussion about their problems with starting in the cold.. and there are youtube videos that support those problems. Those videos seem to be all about bigger bikes, where I think the CCA of the Shorai battery is fairly close to the OEM requirement.. I thought I would head to the garage yesterday and see how the bike would start after sitting, not on a charger, in a cold garage for over two months. Temps here in RI have been as low as 8 F and some days have prob reached 45F.. but the average has prob been in the 30's. Yesterday it was 30 and snowing.. sorry about the goofy phone video and piss poor commentating
