    Before you get too bummed out, check your grounds and battery cables. This has happened to me. Turned out to be a loose wire on the negative terminal.

    The dying fuel pump on my KTM 950 survived the trip home today. It was an uneventful 200 miles of using as little throttle as possible. I think keeping the tank topped off helped (stopped every hour for gas) by letting gravity do as much as possible to feed the carbs.

    I hope everyone has a safe couple days of riding and great time tonight with dinner and whatnot...

    EDIT: Replaced the fuel pump after unpacking and unwinding a bit, washed the bike and took it out for a shakedown ride. It's back to normal. Time to plan a ride for tomorrow since I have a three day hall pass from SWMBO...

    I got home at about 3:30 after about 450 miles of mostly super slab.

    Thanks to Weave for getting us together and to Mark O for organizing T-shirts and steekers.

    It was great seeing some old buddies and making some new ones. :clap

    Ya'll have fun tonight.

    Safe travels,
