  2. I like that Optimate charger. Thanks for showing it. I just put in an order for one. For air-pumping duties, I disassembled your typical small Walmart style air pump, dumped all the plastic housing, and stuffed the pump itself into one of the side cowls under the seat. Never used it for 8 or 9 years. Tried it out this summer to blow up an air mattress and the pump piston had seized.

    Thanks! Italian Alps. Somewhere not far south of Dobbiaco if I remember correctly (and from looking at my map). Probably the most smiles I had in any one day of riding, period. 14 mountain passes and each was as beautiful as the last.
