The GS's after market driving lights weren't much to talk about, and the wiring was kind of a cluster. I did a fair amount of night riding this fall on that bike and the OEM lights on those early 1200s were terrible.
I have pulled the trigger on some Baja Designs Squadron Sport LED's. I also ordered a Hex ezCan can bus controller. This will make nice work of all my accessory wiring and use the existing switches (like the turn signal cancel switch) to turn off and on my driving lights thru the bikes' can bus. I can also do some programming like turning off my right driving light when I have the right turn signal on.
I should have this done in a week or two and will l post up the results.
Had the RT on the road by 6 this morning, high-balled over to Bonneville. Went to the beginning of the Santa Fe Trail at the Old Franklin town site and then over to the old Arrow Rock Ferry Landing. Arrow Rock is really nice, interesting area with lots to see. Campground, bed & breakfasts and the Big Muddy National Wildlife Refuge. I plan on going back soon. Rode the alphabet a lot on the way home, staring with TT just west of Arrow Rock. Went by lots of places on the National Historic Register.
Lights schmites seeing deer well before you hit em is over rated. I prefer to be surprised
That area around booneville is great, been to Glasgow but not arrow rock landing but will.

I swear, there was no sign where I entered the old rail road bed.

Good riding but dusty.
The "Road Closed" gate was open on Box Turtle. All the rock shelves are gone.
The nannies ruined BT. Been wanting to go see Box Turtles condition
You aint kidding about the dust
Yesterday was a little windy for riding, but a good day for hiking. Went over to Tallgrass Prairie and I noticed that the Nature Conservancy has purchased Little Jerusalem. This is old news but I did do a little reading. The Conservancy does not have a solid plan or time line in place but it sounds like they are wanting to turn it over to Kansas Wildlife and Parks.
I would like to do a similar trip like you guys did with Sally. Experience from riding 96 west to Colorado has taught me that you may have to ride a long ways to find a decent place to stay or meal. We may just make a base camp out at Cedar Bluff State Park and take a couple of day trips from there.
Following the Smokey Hill River is not far from I-70 so there is always hotels and food nearby.
Wilson is along the river and has fantastic hotel with restaurant and a nice B&B.
The Hotel was booked on our trip so we stayed at the BandB and were very happy with the accommodations. http://www.simplehavenbandb.com/
I get a Forbidden when I click the dudasite link???
One of our goals was to check out Little Jerusalem. As large as the area was I hoped we could find a road that was nearby that would allow us to see the formations. We rode around the area, there is no place with a good view. We did see where they are putting in a parking lot and trail head but it was behind locked gates.
Not going anywhere this year for Christmas.
Probably taking day trips Friday & Saturday.
It is amazing how many of you that I know where you live or your address.
Probably go hiking and camping with Clem over the New Year's.
