Thumb tank options

Also do you feel you went with the correct tank options for increasing fueling distances? What other options were you looking at? Thanks so much

Rick's MOSFET Reg.

I put one of Rick's regulators on my wife's '08 690 in the fall (in prep for the LA Barstow Vegas ride - which was great - kudos to AMA D37!). I had a Shorai battery in it too. The day of LAB2V the battery was dead. Being well prepped 690 riders, I just pulled out the jumper cables, and was shortly under way. I've read that some people think the Lithium batteries are part of the regulator problem on the 690's (that they help cause the problem.)

Luckily the dealership sponsoring the start had a lead acid battery that fit the 690. Made for a fun morning hustling to get a new battery in the bike, get our rollcharts loaded, etc., and to get on the trail while the organizers where yelling at us to get moving before the sweep riders went out.

The old reg seemed to act up when the bike was under load (sand). Well, we did 400 miles over LAB2V weekend, with a LOT of sand (under heavy load), and the bike was perfect.

Make sure you have some extra wire, solder and ring connectors as the leads that come with this regulator are not long enough to run from the regulator to the battery (Rick recommends to run it to the battery directly instead of the stock connector.)

As everyone else says - great ride report, and Happy New Year!

Alive.

Vietnam is crazy. My friend and I have lots of video but you will have to wait. Sorry.

In the mean time, here is an interview I did for my local Minnesota radio station.

So what kind of bike did you get in Vietnam?
Did you rent or buy?

Thanks for sharing the radio interview

Excellent interview. Have been following your ride since the beginning, and appreciate all the work you put into keeping up this report so we can be along with you. Great advice about keeping it simple and not letting travel expenses
keep you from pursuing your dreams. Ride on, and safe travels And you have got me seriously thinking about a 690 . . .
