Re: Battery Tender System.

You need a smaller fuse, more appropriate to your GPS. I would leave the 25 amp in place but add another fuse that will work for GPS but unplug for battery tender use. I plan to do this on my bike but believe my battery tender hook up doesn't have a fuse.

new (to me) bike

Happy Bike Day--just picked up a 86 Suzuki Cavalcade 1400. A little rough, 88k, but I got a good deal. Big heavy akward bike at slow speeds great on highway, a lot like the Wing but more top heavy, front end flops at parking lot/driveway speeds. Should be a good tow bike.

Most things around this part of SD are in Rapid City (too much to mention Google it) Also if you are ...

Re: Colorado is burning...

Ryan;

We've only had smoke one day. Two nights ago could see fire reflection on clouds to the North. With US24 closed, US50 is like Denver's rush hour. Last Sunday even Phantom Canyon had a lot of traffic.

Taxable used bore and number of cyl. not actual displacement. SI (metric)sic usually rate bikes in PS Rather than HP but the...
