    Since I posted this, I've ridden down to Homer and back to Anchorage adding another 491 miles. I took the bike to The Motorcycle Shop in Anchorage for a new rear tire and the Tractionator had a 5mm tread depth. Alaska roads are definitely easier on tires than the Canadian roads I traveled.

    They do not get that hot. Even the cat never gets above 400°, the muffler only about 250°.

    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!
