Welcome back

Good to see your posts again. So many fabulous photos. I think my favorite is the wheat fields.

I realize that they aren't current problems but they may come up again;
Engine cutting out - I immediately thought about clogged fuel injectors. The ethanol in the gasoline combines with water and makes crud that can clog the super fine holes in the fuel injectors - a problem with all F800s. I keep it under control with Star-tron, Techron also helps.
Oil light on but oil is OK - the computer pops up this warning if the fan cannot turn - rocks, mud, sticks can do this. I've seen this on my bike and my buddy's.

We met briefly in Dawson City in 2009. Many miles and adventures for both of us since then.

Thanks for your photos and stories.
