Arkansas Weekend

Heading to Hot Springs for the weekend!

Huge thanks to Patrick from Motorcycles Unlimited! (this is the real reason for the thread) I went in there to get my chain lubed and everything looked at before leaving and ended up with a new rear tire, oil change, suspension adjustment, rear seat bag, and a new headlight bulb. Guys were great.

Pretty certain Ducati did not design the Streetfighter for 400 mile trips.

Yea, a tad. The worst was last night and trying to get comfortable at 12 in the morning at about mile 350. The rear seat bag I purchased doesn't quite allow me to sit all the way back on the seat when I have my backpack on.

The only odd thing that happened on the way up here was late last night. I'd be going in a perfectly straight line, over no bumps and no incline, and all of a sudden the DTC would fully engage to the point it shut down the injectors. It only happened for a second each time and it did it twice. Each time after stopping for a bit to take a rest. I need to find out where the sensors are; maybe I hit too many bugs.

Well check the setttings on your TDC it might be too high, lower it to 4-5-6, or just turn it off if it is interrupting your trip (hope you know how to turn it off)

Also if you google GIVI Streetfighter you will find out some really good products to install on your bike
