Made it to Chicago safe and sound. Found out that I needed the practice of a 800 mile day. Throttle lock worked well but I wish I had a real cruise control.
Glad you made it safe. I you can find a Audiovox CCS-100 cruise still floating around (out of production) they work fine even on a CAN-Bus bike.
Garmin has a new Zumo on the way if anyone was about to pull the trigger(like me cause my 550 is acting flaky). Looks promising with Lifetime Map upgrades Zumo 350LM.
Dan, do you still have that new screen for the zumo 550?
I checked the Spotwalla link this morning and it showed you made it. How long did it take you?
Left the house @8 went by the way of Morton's to have Stewart look at the oil leak/set up apt for fix. Stopped for Lunch/Gas and Dinner/Gas and got into Chicago about 11Pm and promptly got to practice my slow riding skills. Being stuck in crawling traffic after 800 miles SUCKS.
Did he say anything else about the oil leak or where its coming from?
There is a bolt with a crush washer by the cam/chain tensioner that is most likely the cause.
If you find one I'll buy it from you. I'll even help you install it.
Here you go!
I would worry about this statement:
Not sure what the interferance issue is, but if it relates at all to width--we are so screwed. I believe the big-wide, assed BMW will be wider than the Ford Econoline Van....

$1200 plus install is a little pricy.
How much was the exhaust and it has no real use?
I didn't buy a whole new bike to gain 10HP.
A TTR will get you 10 horse....
They make a new one that is all digital ( no vacumn canister). I have not installed one of these yet. I have installed many of the ccs-100 's on many different kinds of bikes and they worked fine. I have installed at least 3 MCCruise units and the innards appear to be "Rostra" who makes the Audiovox unit.as well. MCCruise uses its own switch gear.
Good meeting you this morning Xuare and glad to hear the bike is running well!
Nice to meet everyone! I appreciate getting to meet and talk with everyone who came.
As for the bike, that was before it fell off the trailer 3 (as in three) times today. Fortunately I could ride it back. Now I have to inspect the front brake, straighten the bars to the front wheel, clean the fuel cap vent, and fix the right hid light casing. Most of the impacts were taken by the right highway peg, which is bent to hell but not critical to having a working bike. Also _very_ fortunate the bike fell on the trailer without touching the street!
The fun part was running from home back to the wagon to get the tow vehicle...after having sweatily wrestled withthe straps and standing up the bike while on the trailer
