Have never done a RR........but everytime I read one I think......I know just how some of this strange sheeet happens. You go Jenna.............I am proud of you. Great airhead too..........I am looking at buying a bike there in Atlanta area...........buy you a good beer if you let me. Glad you got back safe.

Nice job and a fun read!
I had the same "vapor lock" problem with my HPN tank the first time I took it out too! The funny thing is that I have the very same tank bag also. My theory is that the tank bag squashed the vent and caused the thing to not breathe.
My folks are in MI too! Oxford, just north of Pontiac.

I'll take some pics of my tank cover and send them over to you.

PS -- Go to Alaska.
