I am back in Post Falls Idaho.  My youngest of three daughters gave birth to
my grandson, her first.
While here I plan to add a hydraulic seat lift, install a SHAD SH48 top box. I will be servicing the bike also.
Still snowing lightly. Waiting for my Wolverine boots and heated vest to arrive from Amazon. First time using heated gear. This one uses a lithium battery to power the vest. I wanted the vest to be worn while walking and riding. I do understand that the wired gear is more powerful and last longer than the battery ones. I don't plan on doing long trips.
Hopefully the SHAD top box will be easy to mount and remove using their universal mount. If not then I will get their bike specific mount.
I saw some riders out earlier this week but the weather has gotten worse. Been wet, snowy, and cold.
We are hunkered down and only going out for essential supplies.  At least I have something to work on to keep me from getting cabin fever.
YOU ALL BE SAFE!

Wired gear is the best way to go. SW can handle a full jacket liner or 2 vests not pulling full power on high.    Install a voltage meter to monitor system volts as long as it's above 13.2 volts  not discharging battery.   Rectifier is just dumping all excess current anyway and no damage to charging system. At idle it is much less full power a 5K RPM.

Idaho sounds nice  a little more remote from all that is going on right now.

Grandfather congratulations.

Hawaii looks like it's going to be restricted for awhile like the rest of us in some places.
