    Carbon is reassembled, but has not been ridden or tested since. I was expecting Lori to take it for a road trip with the new tent she bought. *Sigh* I guess it is up to me to bear the responsibility of taking it into the mountains for a few days.

    Also, not sure if these were the ones that were giving trouble on the Versys, but on my bike Kawasaki uses a lot of these little plastic rivet things. This guy has a good video that shows how to remove them, at least for me this was not intuitive and I probably would have broken them without the video!

    I did post this in text form on Lori's facebook post back when we were talking about it there, but forgot that the video where this is shown is different from the USB charger video.

    Ahh the old fairing puzzle. And the reason why simple crashes on the side can often be so expensive; high quality plastic moulds pumping out big pieces in low volumes.

    Rode the Blue Ridge Parkway for a couple of days, almost to Roanoke, VA. Alas, the Parkway is closed for a significant portion around Roanoke, so I just came home. It was a nice ride. I camped two nights. I certainly do not have an iron butt. I was fatigued by the time I got home. My butt, back and legs were uncomfortable. I need to start working out again and doing yoga to alleviate that. I have fallen out of shape.

    The charger worked great!
