    Hanging out in Pensacola. Spent the day at Adventure BMW. Service day.
    Max is closer to his goal of Bluetoothing every electronic gizmo known to man that he has mounted to the RT.
    The brick is back to 100%.
    Low beam was a bulb replacement.
    PIAA issue solved by correcting a faulty ground and replacing unavailable bulbs ($48.00 each and unobtainium) with $4.00 specials from Lowes.
    Very little modification required. Gotta love the innerwebs.
    Radar is back up along with screamer/VIs-alert.
    My Passport 9500ix took a shit and the tech just happen to have an identical one that had survived an R1 whangchung. Used his internals with my case and Bob's your uncle.

    Did the math tonight and determined that since we landed, we have averaged almost 40 miles a day!
    Most likely we'll need to pick up the pace.
    Heading towards NewOO tomorrow to
    link up with Rog on Sat.
    Gonna be a ball buster.

    Waiting for better connections to drop in the photos.
    Gotta go.

    IMG_0075.JPG I remember when we wired the FLYNBRK. Impressive array of gizmos and toggle switches. With all those connections....hard to imagine we missed a solid ground. Ride hard and take chances.

    It was NOT our work. Had a battery installed 2 years ago in Gainesville. His mistake that didn't
    surface till now. Interesting to say the least.
    Just rolled into New Orleans and hooked up with Rog. Tomorrow is WW2 museum and Bourbon Street. Hot rods were everywhere in Biloxi.
    Will be there Monday night. Still gotta drop in some photos. Hey ........ I've been busy!

    That should give us enough time!
    My thinking is Monday evening the 8th(?).
    Currently in NOLA. Spent the day being tourists.
    The WW 2 museum was way cool.

    OBTW...... the guy on the RT is questioning the condition of the road into your place.
    Any chance we can keep him on needles and pins for the next week??

    For the crew on the road, I'll put an "ADV" sign by our driveway Monday. Let me know if you have an ETA. I have a few ADV locals that might stop by as well.

    Arrived Bham. Rm212. Cooling down from hot ride from Athens GA.
    Toured Blue Moon Cycle en-route. Cool place. Worth a stop.
    Atlanta was a pain to get around.
    Will inspect the new museum tomorrow. Whats your ETA?

    Sounds good. RLee should be at the hotel now.
    Griz may also be in. The Three Amigos will depart Biloxi tomorrow and head into BHam for Thursday PM. See you tomorrow night.
