Bike is pretty good. By the time I turned to return home I was getting used to the bike and running pretty fast (for me). A few farkles and perhaps get the EFI remapped as it seems to be running lean, and I should be all set.
I can't be sure from the picture but it looks like the O2 sensor is still plugged in the exhaust pipe. If it is, that is one of the first things that should be taken out. You should have been provided a small resistor plug that goes where the O2 sensor was plugged in and a cap for the exhaust pipe hole. This will make the bike run richer and better. Not sure how well you know Huskies but cafehusky.com is your Husky info site. Ask the dealer if he did the 'power up' mod. Also check for an air filter restricter plate.

I'm in the process of changing over to hard side cases, but should be ready for a friday mid morning ride over. Or maybe I'll head off in the wrong direction and arrive later.

I installed a Curt hitch from etrailer and made my own wire box with a $2.99 pack of diodes from RadioShack for my TDI. I guess I should own a KLR

Ride through the Mount Misery campgound and look for the flags as shown below.. USA, ThumperTalk, ADV..



the photo above is taken from a campsite looking out towards the ring road. The flags will probably be easily visible from the dirt road but if not just look for bunches of dual sport bikes and that will be us..

Since you are hauling your bike in you should probably park and unload in the parking area next to the field.. In the image below you can see a cleared field and the annotations read "go around field" to get to the camp sites but there is plenty of parking for trucks or even trucks with trailers to unload just to the right of the "go around field" arrow and at the intersection with DEP Trail Road.. Odds are there will be other trucks or vehicles with trailers there when you arrive..



anything I missed?
