Your License, proof of insurance and in some states registration are all that are gonig to be asked of you by state/local law enforcement.

In most cases just being a friendly foreigner will be enough to get you out of most minor infractions. make sure you are reading MPH vis KPH .

At a guess, if johhny law puts you on the curb, its probably going to be to talk about your trip/bike.

Great movie. I watched it again last night. You have to watch it to find out.

Pump up a rear tire once with a mini pump. Then decide if the electric is still not an option.
These are not bicycle tires.

Last weekend with Rhino sidewall gash. I would still be there with a mini pump.
Then again, I'm not in as good of shape as some of you pumpers.

Maybe, it seems like the last few rides I've been on there has been a flat involved
with someone. I've never had the Slime pump not work. Couple of the patch jobs
took several attempts. I'd rather let the battery do the dirty work than be bent over
jacking off a mini pump. I do carry the manual pumps on my trail bikes because
of room reasons.

1st time I plugged my Motopump into my black Tenere it instantly blew a fuse (might have blown a blue Tener all to hell). Have to run it off the battery(pump worked fine off the plug on my old GS12). A diesel pickup had a flat & no spare way back in the Nevada desert last year. We found it while on our bikes. We plugged it & the pump filled it up but it took awhile. Had I had that hand pump, we'd still be there.

Ya, the black ones can't wait to blow somethng. I think they come with a 3 amp fuse
for the power outlet. Designed for GPS or phone stuff, not an inflator. Up the fuse to
10 amp and you should be fine. I put a BMW style in for the inflator with heavy gauge
wire and straight off the battery. Just waiting for the recall now.

The same hapen to me ( BLUE Tenere ) a 3 Amp fuse...
I had to use 2 of the 16 grams cartridges to fill my front k60 with enough pressure to get to a fuel station ( or find a GS ), the k60 works well on low pressure

Sure sounds like to me the black one couldn't get it up, even with a pump... Do they have limp handguards, too?

I always run mine off an SAE cord wired directly to the battery, no issues yet.
