everything is all packed up and ready to go. capn just stopped over on his killer. then when he went to leave it went zap and died, no lights nothing. loose battery connection was quickly confirmed as the culprit, then i noticed some odd scalloping on the far right lug on his brand new rear tire. all we can think of there was either bad rubber on that side from the factory OR something like a rock got pinned in the swingarm and wore the lug down until it fell out, either way we are baffled there. going to be keeping an eye on that. however we are both excited to get going. 12 hours till we hit the road!
