    Nah, that would actually cool it down due to airflow. I did it at 4K RPM for 3 minutes in a hot garage. It wouldn't get any hotter.

    Rode 742 miles yesterday and 350 this morning to get to the National Rally. With my 83 year old father inlaw. We rocked it and his RT and my GS just are such great motorcycles to turn those miles on. Having a blast.

    Finished my Denali CanSmart install and set up. Since I only run 4 items, I swapped a pdm60 for the CanSmart. Set up Denali D2 lights to the low power light circuit. The B6 brake light to the brake circuit. Spiced my heated gear harness to the horn circuit and spliced my heated seats to the high power light circuit. Configured these last 2 as simple switched circuits. Everything works as it should and a cleaner wiring set up. :clap

    Looking good man!

    Don't spoil your enjoyment along the way with too much added effort or stress over "high production quality" vlogs or whatever...but sure would enjoy seeing some of the sights on your channel when you get back.

    Safe travels...sure sounds like an awesome time!

    Took mine for a 626 mile ride from Vegas to Pasadena for lunch at a Steakhouse. We rode there and back on the Angeles Crest Highway CA2. What a ride!
    Yes we got stickers!

    Gulf for fall...
    I was out in the middle of nowhere getting my typical 100+ mile coffee run in this morning when I hit the right farm and picked up the first SWEET CORN for this year. Yeah baby, THAT is what I'm talking about .....
    I shall sharpen up my cobb twirlers and have some fresh sweet corn and tomaters for dinner.
    Finally I recall there is at least SOME benefit to being in the midwest this time of year other than the meaty mosquitoes which fry up great ..... and are too fat to fit between the grill on my headlamp protector ....
