Hey Brian. Glad you got out for a ride yesterday; I don't care what kind of bike a person rides, it's great to just be out riding. I saw one other bike in my ride and it was a big Harley with a grinning rider . It was warmish here, about 52*F, but VERY gusty winds. I was clearing brush and fooling around outside when I decided I needed to run to town for some stuff, so took the GS rather than a car. I lived in Wyoming for 34 years and you simply don't ride year-round there, the bikes would stay covered in the garage with a battery tender for about five months straight. Sometimes I'd get stir crazy and load one up in the truck and head south until it got warm and dry enough that I could ride.

Yeah, you'll love all the power the BMW alternator puts out. I don't think my Chevy truck puts out as much and you can run all manner of electrics off it.

Take care, hope to see you out there on the road sometime!

Doug
