Clark, my riding buddy, lives in Albuquerque, so in the morning we have the GSPD towed again back to his place. He has a garage there with all sorts of tools, and it was a convenient place for me to hang out while we waited for the new relays to come in the following day.
After picking up and installing the relays , the bike still wasn’t charging quite right. A new battery and substantial testing later, Clark goes to check the diode board and it falls off in his hand. Not good! Much of the afternoon is spent trying to remove the hardened rubber mounts for the diode board.
Bike gets put back together around 10 pm, we have a few beers, and fall asleep dreaming of being back on the trail.
